Quorn Fillets in Tomato with Cheesy Baked Potato

This dish is really quick – but good ♥

This recipe will serve two people with an Italian style meal, accompanied by a fresh green salad

 I use my halogen oven for this dish, so it’s economic power-wise also.  
 
Ingredients
2 medium sized baking potato (each app. 125 to 150 gm)
½ tsp virgin olive oil
½ tbsp mature cheddar cheese, grated
 
227 gm can of chopped tomotoes
2 Quorn fillets
½ tbsp fresh basil
½ tbsp fresh oregano
freshly ground sea salt and pepper to taste

Method

  • Wipe the potatoes with a damp cloth and remove any blemishes
  • With a sharp skewer, pierce the potato several times on both top and bottom
  • Using a paper towel, lightly apply the olive oil over surfaces of each of the potatoes
  • Place onto the rack at the bottom of halogen oven, preheated to 180°C; set time for 30 minutes
  • Whilst the potatoes are cooking, place the quorn fillets in a small lidded casserole dish (app. 600ml)
  • Pour the canned chopped tomatoes over the fillets and sprinkle the basil and oregano leaves over the surface and put the lid on the dish
  • Put the casserole dish to one side until the oven timer has switched off.  When the oven switches off, lift the lid and give the contents a quick stir.
  • Put the casserole dish it on the same rack as the potatoes, and using tongs, turn the potatoes over
  • Set the timer for 20 minutes, and at the same temperature of 180° C
  • When the oven switches off, check the potatoes with a skewer to see if they are done.  If they are cooked, using the tongs, transfer them to the bench
  • With a sharp knife, make a light cut down the length of each potato and another at right angles to the first
  • Gently squeeze each potato to open it up a bit, then scatter the grated cheese over the exposed potato flesh
  • Put the potatoes back in the halogen oven (cheesy side up), and set the timer for 5 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and has just started to brown.  Repeat this step for another 3 to 5 minutes if necessary
  • When potatoes are ready –

 serve and savour the flavour!
