Veggie ‘steak’ stew with dumplings

We've combined Quorn steak strips, mushrooms and broccoli in a low calorie stew and topped it with wholemeal dumplings to make a hearty, healthy dinner.

Serves 4

Prep Time 15 min

Cooking Time 25 min


  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 400g mushrooms, sliced
  • 300g Quorn steak strips or chicken-style pieces
  • 200g tenderstem broccoli, chopped into 5cm lengths
  • 1tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 30g reduced-salt vegetarian gravy granules mixed with 500ml boiling water
  • Chopped fresh parsley, to garnish

For the dumplings

  • 175g wholemeal self-raising flour
  • ½tsp mixed dried herbs
  • 40g low-fat spread
  • 125ml skimmed milk


    1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 min or until golden. Add the Quorn and cook for 3–4 min. Stir in the broccoli, mustard and gravy, then bring to a simmer. Stir occasionally.
    2. Meanwhile, make the dumplings. Put the flour and dried herbs in a bowl. Rub the spread into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in the milk to form a firm but sticky dough, then turn the dough out on to a floured worksurface. Roll the dough into 8 even dumplings, then put on top of the stew.
    3. Cover the pan with a tight-fitting lid and simmer over a low heat, allowing the dumplings to steam, for 12–15 min. Serve garnished with chopped fresh parsley.

Tip: Serve the stew with your favourite steamed veg on the side.

  1. My partner doesn’t like mushrooms so I cooked some mushrooms and carrots separately, then made the stew with the brocolli, quorn steak and I added an onion too. Then I just mixed in mushrooms for my portion, and carrots for him, very tasty!
