Quorn converted

I am a big meater and someone recommended quorn foods to reduce calories. At first I thought YUK! but when trying some quorn burgers they are delicious and more tasty than beefburgers.

I would just like to spread the word about this for people to help with their healthy eating and if anyone uses meat free products could you please recommend any other products.

Thank you x

Hiya, I put quorn fillets in my slow cooker with loads of mushrooms, baby carrots, celery, leek, whatever you like and have handy really really (except spuds!) and let it gently cook together in a little vegetable/mushroom stock made from a cube. At the end I thicken up the liquid with some cornflour (mixed with a little cold water first), usually keeping most of the cooking water from the veg along with any nutrients that have leached into it. It's v tasty, and can easily work out to 2 of your 5 a day. You can do the same as a normal casserole - I love my slow cooker for convenience but it's not essential. I serve it with microwave rice which suits me as it helps with portion control and makes counting calories easier. We've also had success with making a 'chicken quorna' with the chunks and a jar of korma sauce. Quick and easy!

i almost picked quorn sausages up today to try....thought they were a little expensive though. I want to try some at some point though so maybe next time I'll bite the bullet!

I don't eat meat so therefore people assume I use a lot of quorn, which I don't, I really only use it a couple of times a month. I do use the Linda McCartney sausages occasionally for brunch. I usually put them in the oven in a casserole dish with onions, peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes with spray oil and seasoning and they are lovely with the roasted vegetables.

I am a vegetarian so use quorn and soya products quite a lot- quorn mince and pieces are good to use for meat alternatives in recipes instead of mince and meat chunks. The quorn steaks are good, but I find the 'chicken' fillets are a bit dry. tescos do a lovely meat free hotdog which taste similar to what I can remember real hotdogs taste like- the quorn versions aren't as good I find. I don't do their ready meals since I tend to cook from scratch then divide them into 4 portions and freeze ready for pack lunches

RG07 I agree the Tesco hot dogs do taste better. I haven't had them for years, I know what will be getting ordered in my next Tesco.com
