Quorn is a large and lovely part of my families diet. I have been vegetarian since I was a child and my children have been raised vegetarian. My husband is also vegetarian.
Eating quorn as an alternative to meat has a huge amount of benefits for us:
It’s a way of dramatically reducing fat and calorie intake whilst still eating regular meals such as sausge and mash or bolognese.
It’s an animal frienedly way of getting a good deal of protein.
It is cholesterol free and a good source of fibre and amino acids.
So healthy, good for the diet and vesratile as well as animal friendly. Great stuff – you don’t have to be a vegetarian to eat quorn, it is often a cheaper option than meat and is definately a healthy alternative so everyone can benefit from introducing it into their diet! I used to attend Slimming World classes where everyone seemed to be a convert to it!
The easiest way to introduce Quorn into your diet is to replace the meat you would typically eat with it’s Quorn counterpart. You can still have bacon buttties but they would be Quorn bacon butties. Cottage pie would be the same but you would use Quorn not lamb mince. Simple substituions are a great way to start incorporating Quorn into your diet.
Ther are so many brilliant Quorn recipes at the Quorn website you should definately take a look, here are just a selection. Don’t these look yummy?

You may wonder what Quorn actually is. Well here you go…
The main constituent of Quorn, Mycoprotein, is a naturally occurring, high quality, healthy form of protein. Quorn is produced using a fermentation process very similar to brewing; only we harvest the solid as opposed to the liquid. This remarkable ingredientis then used as the base for more than 100 different food products ranging from mince to fillets, to ready-made meals and snacks. (taken from www.quorn.co.uk)
As a family we eat a range of Quorn; my hubby likes the scotch eggs and mini sausages, I like the quorn pieces in fajitas and my children really like the sausage rolls and the quorn ham slices in sandwiches. We wouldn’t be without it. It tastes so good. I’ve passed quorn bacon sandwiches to builders , quorn chicken sliced sandwiches out to party tea guests with no complaints.
There is a useful quorn facebook page full of brilliant recipes sent in by readers. It would be great if you photgraphed your meals and sent in recipes too. It’s a brilliant way to share ideas. Meal times can get so dull if we don’t ring in the changes. I just took a peek and found out that Quorn lunch pots are about to be launched . I quite fancy the chicken style tagine.
