Tandoori Quorn Pitta Pockets

Ever since I have been eating only vegetarian food I have been experimenting with Quorn products and trying to make them as tasty as possible. I love the chicken style pieces and thought why not make a vegetarian version of tandoori chicken kebabs. So I through a couple of ingredients together and came out with a fantastic end product. 
This recipe is so quick and easy and super delicious, I hope you give it a try !

1 packet of Quorn chicken style pieces
1 heaping Tbs of Tandoori powder or paste
Greek style yogurt as needed for the marinade
1 squirt of tomato puree
Mint sauce as needed
one small onion (diced)
Himalayan salt as needed
black pepper as needed
Tabasco sauce (optional)
1 packet of pitta bread
Romaine Lettuce or lettuce of choice.
1 tbs vegetable oil

Method and preparation:

Add a little vegetable oil to a large pan and saute the quorn pieces until golden brown and turn of the heat.

Now prepare the tandoori Marinade by adding about 3 to 4 heaped tbs of Greek style yogurt into a bowl along with the tandoori powder/ paste, Tomato puree and Tabasco sauce and give it a good stir. Check and adjust seasoning as needed.

Add the marinade to the quorn pieces and give it a good stir.

At this point you can either leave it in the fridge to soak up the flavours for half an hour or longer or like me cook it like it is.

Put some parchment paper on a baking sheet and arange the quorn pieces on it.

Now bake them in the oven on 180 for 10 minutes or until you see the authentic charred edges around the pieces.

To make the Yogurt and mint sauce, Add some yogurt into a bowl along with a dollop of mint sauce, diced onion and salt and pepper to taste.

Now warm your pitta bread in the oven on 180 until fluffy but slightly crisp.

Wash and dry the romaine lettuce.

Now it's time to assemble the Tandoori pittas :)

Make a slit in the pittas to make a pocket. 
Spread some yogurt sauce on the bottom layer.
Add a lettuce leaf.
Add some quorn pieces.
Enjoy :)

I hope you enjoy this recipe, I'm sure even meat eaters will love this one ;)
