Yum Review: Quorn
Terrence and I eat a mostly vegetarian diet, with infrequent meals that include fish and seafood. That being said, my imagination and recipes only can stretch so far. When this happens I have a few "old faithful" easy meals that I go-to.
One of my lifesaver products is called Quorn. They are a meat substitute, that honestly.... tastes better than meat.
I can't even tell you how many times I have used it in different recipes and Terrence has said:
"Whoa, I never miss meat when you make this stuff"
So, yeah, it's good.
They have "chicken patties", grilled "chicken" cutlets, "chicken strips" ground crumbles, meatballs, "chicken" nuggets and cutlets stuffed with goat cheese and cranberries. Holla.
One of my favorite things to use is the stuffed cutlets (for special occasions) and the crumbles from everything from taco soup, taco salad and regular tacos.
You defrost them in a skillet adding either sauce or oil and them cook them up just like you would ground beef. For the "chicken" products, (excepting the chicken strips, which are prepared same as the crumbles) a minute or two in the microwave and you're done.
For your viewing pleasure, I give you Quorn Taco Salad.
Which was: Quorn crumble, some organic taco sauce from Whole Foods, sauteed onions, black beans, arugula and salsa. Dinner in 15 minutes. Done.
Terrence and I buy these at Whole Foods, and use them once or twice a week. Even in my more extravagant recipes it's sometimes nice to integrate some "meatier" elements.
