This was great such a nice chance to the regular ways we use Quorn. I added extra lemon and think I made it perfect


5 out of 5 stars

We added some white wine and additional cream at the end because it seemed a bit dry. We didn’t keep any of the veggie broth but that would have worked too. This dish was amazing!
