My style of cooking is generally along the lines of ‘what random ingredients can I throw together to make something edible in the quickest time possible’…

True to form, this is one such recipe, and is so versatile that you could have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

These last few weeks I’ve really been trying to eat cleaner and get in as much protein while not going too crazy with the carbs alongside my weight training.

With two different types of protein, this recipe is really great if you have similar macro goals.

If you wanted, you could substitute the Quorn pieces for something else – I’ve made similar meals before with smoked salmon or leftover bits of roast chicken, which are both reasonably lean protein sources.

I was also pretty generous with the turmeric and black pepper, as the two work in combination to give your metabolism and immune system a boost (and it also makes a pretty yellow colour, which I’m definitely all for).
