1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the onion, carrot and celery. Cook gently for 10 minutes, adding a little water if necessary, until softened and starting to brown.
2. Add the Quorn mince and cook a further 2-3 minutes before adding the red wine. Increase the heat and simmer gently until nearly all the wine has evaporated.
