You might remember that we were invited to try out Quorn’s vegetarian range a few months ago?
Well, we enjoyed it so much that when Quorn asked us whether we’d like to check out their new vegan range for veganuary we obviously jumped at the chance.
There are currently two vegan products available from Quorn – vegan pieces and hot & spicy vegan burgers.
The pieces, in particular, are a hugely versatile product and more or less taste just like chicken. I’d happily chuck them in with a spaghetti bolognese or chilli con carne aswell, they go with everything!
The burgers are NOT your usual bean burgers (wahey!) and I think they taste like a slightly spicier version of McDonald’s Chicken Legend so super tasty!
The pieces are available from most ASDA and Waitrose stores together with Ocado (online ordering only). The burgers are also available in the majority of ASDA stores. To check whether your local store is a stockist you can view the full list of retailers over on Quorn’s website.
So, what have we been cooking up recently?
Well, Quorn kindly directed us to their recipes section and we chose these favourites to see us through the week…(please click the links below to view the recipes)
I couldn’t find the gram flour that we needed for this at first but I eventually spotted it at our local Tesco. I think you could easily pick it up from any world food store as well.
The socca was quite like making pancakes and tasted gorgeous, very similar to a naan bread.
This recipe was really easy to follow, it’s definitely a filling meal and the topping was very flavoursome and refreshing.
I know, I know – can you actually see any nachos in there?
They are under all of that topping – I promise! Mushrooms, red chilli, toasted pumpkin seeds, avocado, salsa, red onion, cream and of course, the Quorn vegan pieces – so delicious!
Again, this was a beautiful dish and perfect to share with friends.
The recipe had a lot going on but it was worth it in the end, such a lovely indulgence!
This has been our favourite vegan meal so far and one of the tastiest meals we’ve ever had in general actually. It was absolutely divine!
We used sesame oil instead of olive oil and added some beansprouts to the recipe which was a welcome addition if you’ve got any lurking in your fridge.
There’s lots of veggies in there as well and we teamed the dish with some wholewheat noodles.
It was super easy to make and definitely one to show off with if you can 😉
The burgers were succulent, juicy and tasty, like you’re eating something that’s going to break your diet – when it really isn’t!
Straight from the freezer to cooked in less than 30 minutes, just pop them in the oven and forget about them (well not completely, only for a little while…)
Sweet potato wedges are, obviously, always a winner too and a great accompaniment to the meal.
Very easy to just throw together after a hard day (as you can see we did!)
We were majorly impressed with the vegan products we tried from Quorn despite the range being seemingly limited at this stage. As the vegan pieces can be used in SO many recipes and meals, I can see why they haven’t rushed to expand their vegan offerings. I wouldn’t mind seeing some vegan-friendly sausages though as the vegetarian version they have available are fabulous, the perfect substitute for toad in the hole or a lazy sunday sandwich.
