I’ll be quick again, as it’s a fasting day and food pics make me hungry!!
I had this Bento the other week (when I made them more pretty) and it included some yummy snacks!! The snacks were sliced veg (radishes and cucumber) with ham wrapped dates. I’ve definitely got more into dates. I don’t love them yet, but I do like them 🙂 The main part of the bento was leftover roasted mixed veg (pepper and onion in the yellow cupcake case and sweet potato in the blue cupcake case), leftover veggie burger bake (recipe below) with more cheese on top and chicken flavour noodles with sliced radish on top.
It’s not the healthiest bento I’ve made recently, but it is so colourful and shows off the use of the silicon cupcake cases!
So, here’s how to do a Quorn burger bake. I love putting Quron in bentos, as there is so much less of a worry about it not being safe at room temperature (than meat).
Quorn Burger Bake
x1 pack of Quorn mince (or any other meat free mince)
x2/3 medium onions (or however much you like)
x4 whole eggs
Basil (to taste)
Oregano (to taste)
Parsley (to taste)
Cayenne Pepper (to taste)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
Olive oil (or any cooking oil) for cooking
Cheese (any) for sprinkling on top
– Dice onions finely
– Mix with herbs (I put to taste on the ingredients list because I don’t measure everything out when I make things), salt and pepper and Quorn mince
– Whisk the eggs together and mix in with the Quorn mince mix
– Oil the inside of an oven proof dish
– Pour/put burger mix into oven proof dish and bake for 25-30 mins (I bake it at gas mark 7)
– In the last 5 minutes of baking, sprinkle a generous amount of cheese on the top of the bake and put back in the oven
I do not pre-cook the mince mix, both for ease (makes it so much quicker and so much less washing up!), and because the mince mix will cook through fine in the time in the oven.
This idea would also work with added sauces, such as BBQ sauce, hot sauce, or sweet chilli sauce (mixed in before baking). I will be adding sauce to it before baking next time, as it would prevent the need for adding sauce to it when eating!
