Quorn Product Review - Meat free Soy Free Pieces

Fiona from Markcomms had sent me some products from the new Quorn range being released in Australia, and ofcourse i accepted - as these are vegetarian friendly products suited to non-meat eaters but also for people who want to eat healthy as well.


One of the products i received was meat-free & soy-free pieces which are frozen but can be cooked in the oven, microwave, or in a pan with some oil.


double product review
QUORN & PASSAGE TO THAILAND



I had bought this stir fry sauce a couple of weeks ago, was going to do a vegetable stir fry but never got around to it, so the timing was great when i received my QUORN products.


Real simple, two onions roughly chopped, stir fried with a table spoon of oil and then QUORN's Meat free and soy free pieces are added.

Stir until pieces are heated through, add stir-fry sauce, and stir until sauce is completely heated through. This didn't take long, i was done in less then 15 minutes!


The result? An imitation meat stir fry, the texture of the soy pieces didnt exactly replicate real chicken, but i'd say it was about 70% there :)


I told my sister it was a chicken stir fry, and she said it was really nice. She still doesnt know that it was 'fake' meat, should i tell her? hehe :P

The real test of Quorn would be if it could food an ardent meat eating tradie. Great recipe/

I must admit that even though I was a vegetarian for so many years I've never heard of mycoprotein before! I'm sure this dish was delicious :)

Mmmm...lovely dish. I ate quorn before. It's tasteless on its own and takes to the taste of others . It's definitely a good alternative to meat. It's amusing that your sister didn't get t right.

Lovely use of the stuff. I'm still pondering as to what to do with my Quorn this weekend.

I love stir-fries, but just don't cook them for some reason. I wish I did-- this looks delicious!

Seems in Quorn season. See my friend's tikka masala recipe here:

Haha, you're too funny - what your sister doesn't know won't hurt her, right? I wonder if the quorn has the same vitamins as meat?

Jen said...

Is it anything like the meat-imitation stuff you can get at Asian vegetarian restaurants?

Adrian @ Food Rehab said...

Yummo recipe :). I've just got onto Quorn myself. And I have to say I'm pretty impressed. Much better than other "pretend" meat.

Had some Quorne sausages on a camp, everyone else was eating meat sausages. Thought I had been tricked into eating chicken sausages they tasted so good! Very satisfying for any meat craving :D
