Woman's Weekly recipe This healthy low-fat bowl of Quorn, bean and spinach soup is made from frozen foods. Just as nutritious and tasty as using fresh foods and just as quick to prepare

Ingredients

  • 350ml (12fl oz) frozen chicken or vegetable stock, home-made or ready-made
  • 2 tbsp Thai fish sauce or soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp mirin (rice wine)
  • 2 tsp freshly grated, or frozen prepared, ginger
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 frozen fillets of Quorn, cut into thin strips (taken from a 312g pack of 6 frozen fillets)
  • 100g (3½oz) frozen green beans, cut into short strips
  • 2-3 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  • 180g sachet frozen, pre-cooked basmati rice (taken from 720g pack of 4 sachets)
  • About 60g (2oz) frozen leaf spinach (4 chunks)
  • 1 tbsp chopped frozen coriander
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Garlic bread, to serve

Use chicken, if you like, but it must be thawed well. Thaw stock a little in the microwave first.

Method

  1. Heat the stock in a pan with the fish or soy sauce, mirin, ginger, and sugar. Bring to the boil for a few mins. Add the Quorn strips and beans. Bring back to simmer for 4 mins.
  2. Add the spring onions, rice and spinach and cook for another couple of mins. Stir in the coriander and enough lime juice, to taste. Serve with garlic bread; if frozen, bake or grill according to pack instructions. Or toast frozen bread and spread with garlic butter.
