Spring is in the air and with the clocks change I for one am certainly enjoying the lighter nights. Along with bright nights comes a desire to shift from the warm stews and pies of winter to slightly less heavy dishes. However, as there is still quite a chill in the air, they still have to be warm and filling!
Aldi asked me to create a vegetarian Spring recipe using their delicious ingredients and so today I am featuring a really simple fuss-free one pan vegetarian recipe: Quorn Fillets with Roast Asparagus. This recipe celebrates spring produce including some beautiful asparagus and gorgeous piccolo tomatoes. I love this dish as it is very colourful and full of flavour and it is also really quick and easy to cook. Plus as it's all in one dish it saves on the washing up!
In my dish photographed below, I only used one packet of asparagus tips, but upon reflection I have doubled the asparagus to 250g in the recipe instructions below as I feel that more asparagus was needed.
I hope that you enjoy cooking this dish. I would love to hear what you think of it.
