Meatfree balls in a spicy tomato and spinach sauce

I wanted to cook something tonight instead of heating up something frozen from a packet (like I often do on Fridays) but I didn’t want to go shopping for ingredients and so I looked in the fridge and there was a red pepper, a bag of spinach, some green beans and a savoy cabbage. I couldn’t think of anything to do with them and so I decided to have the meatfree balls that were in the freezer and make a tomato sauce and chuck in the red pepper and spinach. So that’s what I did. I also chucked in a red chilli.

Meatfree balls in a spicy tomato and spinach sauce (serves 4)
1 packet of meatfree balls (I used Sainsburys own)
Olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 red chilli, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
2 tins chopped tomatoes
Half a bag of spinach, roughly chopped
Salt and pepper

Cook the meatfree balls according to the instructions on the packet.

Meanwhile, fry the onion and garlic in the oil for a few minutes, then add the red chilli and fry for another couple of minutes.

Add the red pepper and fry for a bit longer.

Add the tins of tomatoes and simmer for a few minutes.

Add the meatfree balls and spinach and warm through until the spinach has wilted.

Season with salt and pepper.

Serve with spaghetti.

  1. That looks so tasty. I was going to do a Quorn cottage pie for dinner tonight, but now I think pasta would be quite nice instead.
