Hunters, in the traditional sense, are not the natural friends of the vegetarian cook. So this may seem an unlikely one.
Yet, myths and fables provide valued ingredients for the lovers of literature, and a woman like Zelda who appreciates stories of vampires, can find inspiration in one of the Hammer Films which she watched with her brother, another huge vampire film fan.
Captain Kronos, played by Horst Janson in the 1974 film, is called to a village to investigate a series of mysterious deaths, where the victims are drained of their youth. It's a great 'swashbuckling adventure'.
2 quorn fillets, defrosted if frozen
4 vegetarian bacon rashers, defrosted if frozen
2tbsp brown sugar
1tbsp white wine vinegar
½ tsp garlic granules
pinch cayenne pepper
50g cheese, grated
Wrap each fillet in two pieces of bacon. (This follows the usual recipe for Hunter’s Chicken. Don’t expect it to look the same at this point, but it will be worth it in the end.)
Cook in the oven at Gas 7/ 220°/ 425° for 20-25 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by mixing the ketchup, sugar, vinegar, garlic granules, paprika and cayenne pepper in a small saucepan. Heat all gently over a low heat.
Return to the oven for a further 10 minutes.
