Quorn


I've heard of Quorn and have been looking for this product for a while. I'm glad to say that I've found it and rushed to try it out. It is a soy-less meat alternative.




I made a baked potato with broccoli and cheese. Honestly, this meat alternative may be a little too realistic for me. I made it in the microwave- it was quick and the "meat" was quite juicy. I've only had it the once and am looking forward to using a different cooking method to see how it affects flavor.
When I was trying this a couple of my non veg friends gave it a nibble to taste for realistic-ness. They both agreed it was the most meat like product they've tried- which means they'll be getting it and eating more veg food (hehe :))
Overall, I like the product and am excited that I've found it in a store near me.

I've seen this stuff before but never have tried it. Seems like maybe I saw some that had egg whites in it but I'll have to have another look.

Two things.

1- The "breaded cutlet" is much better.

2- They are much better when you make them in the oven.

um quorn is really not so good... hopefully you don't have reactions to it. it's made from a fungus that causes reactions in a good amount of people so be wary, i tried this once before i went vegan and i also thought it was very meaty. research it if you want but quorn isn't very accepted in some circles...

I've heard great things about Quorn. I only wish it were vegan.

When I use Quorn in a dish, I saute it first to brown it a little. It takes sauces just like chicken, and it works great in any dish you would use chicken in. I wouldn't eat it "straight", but it's pretty versatile.

There was one report that claimed 4.5% of people exposed got sick, but that study is widely considered to be overblown, and I read a much much lower number somewhere else that I am too lazy to dig up now.

I for one welcome our new mold overlords.
