Sticky Quorn Sausage and Butternut Squash Tray Bake

I recently talked about my mission to eat less but better quality meat and to try and introduce more meat free recipes into my weekly meal plans. My meat loving hubby and kids are hard nuts to crack on this front, but I'm happy to report this seasonal Quorn Sausage and Butternut Squash Tray Bake was a winner and will be featuring on my weekly meal plan again soon! You can get this vegetarian tray bake prepared, cooked and on the table in about 45 minutes so it's perfect for busy weeknights now the kids have gone back to school.

ENJOYING HEALTHY MEAT FREE MEALS WITH QUORN

The Quorn Sausages have quite a meaty texture and are very well seasoned so no-one felt like they were missing out on their usual pork sausages. I'm definitely going to be keeping a packet of Quorn sausages in my freezer from now on for a quick meat free meal. Sticky Quorn Sausage wraps are on the menu next week and we're looking forward to them already!

Quorn recently partnered with Rachel Stevens, Celebrity Masterchef contestant and mum of two, and in the You Tube video below she chats to Ben Fogle about her own family food choices and how cutting down on their meat intake has helped her family feel healthier (most Quorn products are low in fat and high in protein), with the added benefit of reducing their impact on the environment. In the clip, Rachel shows Ben how to cook one of her children's favourite meat free meals, Sweet and Sour Sticky Quorn Nuggets with stir fried vegetables and rice. You can read more about the partnership here.


It looks really tasty doesn't it? Meat free doesn't mean boring when you can rustle up such delicious, family friendly meals like this. With such a large range of meat free alternatives available in supermarkets nowadays, you are guaranteed to find something to suit all tastes with Quorn. I'm really keen to try the Quorn Mince in my next Bolognese sauce and see how it compares to my classic beef ragu.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE QUORN SAUSAGE AND SQUASH TRAY BAKE

  • Up the veggies by adding chopped red and yellow peppers, courgette or aubergine to the tray bake.
  • I served this Quorn Sausage tray bake with sweet potato chunks and peas but why not try corn on the cob and wholegrain rice.
  • If your kids don't mind a bit of heat, add 1 chopped red chilli to the Quorn Sausage tray bake and serve with some extra chilli sauce.
  • Any leftovers can be chopped into smaller pieces and stirred into some cooked pasta for lunch the next day.
