Quorn Guinness Mole


Guinness, 400g kidney beans, pinto beans, cannellini beans and haricot beans, 6 squares 70%-80% dark chocolate, 1 white onion, 1 tbsp cumin, 50g coriander, olive oil, tomato passata, 1 tsp cayenne pepper.

Serves: 4 Preparation: 30 minutes

A mole (rhymes with Ole!) is a traditional Mexican dish but like most Mexican cuisine, it has been cooked for generations according to family tradition, so there are literally thousands of varieties and one would be hard pressed to make it accurately when one person will give you a list of 30 suggested ingredients and the next over 100! The last of my very belated St Patrick's Day Guinness recipes!

1) Peel and finely dice the onion and fry off in a little olive oil with the cumin and cayenne pepper.

2) Add a packet of Quorn mince and half a pint of Guinness. Allow the Guinness to reduce for 4 minutes before adding the squares of chocolate.

3) Once the chocolate has melted, add the beans (Tesco sell "taco beans", 2 cans of which are perfect) and a little passata tomatoes. Stir through some finely chopped coriander and then allow to simmer until the sauce has thickened before serving.

Perfect with rice, nachos, stuffed into taco shells or tortillas.
