Quorn: Soy Free Meat Alternative

Do you know that reducing your meat consumption is a greener choice?  That is one of the reasons, I enjoy some meat alternative products.  I also just like the variety and the ease of cooking most meat alternatives.  So when I heard about Quorn, a soy free meat alternative, I was very curious.

What exactly is Quorn?

The main constituent of Quorn™ is Mycoprotein, a naturally occurring, high quality form of protein. Quorn™ is produced using a fermentation process very similar to brewing.  This remarkable ingredient is then used as the base for more than 100 different food products ranging from grounds to cutlets, to entrees and snacks.

Quorn™ is many things to many people.  I found this table from the Quorn website very informative:

To the food-lover it’s a simple way to make all your favorite meals, healthier.
To the weight-watcher it’s a way of dramatically reducing fat and calorie intake without trying to survive on soup and salad.
To the healthy eater it’s a cholesterol-free source of protein, fiber and essential amino acids.
To the vegetarian it’s the nutritional benefits of meat – without hurting a hair of any animal’s head.
To the environmentalist it’s an alternative to turning the world’s rain forests into grazing land and an alternative to depleting the dwindling fish-stocks of the ocean.

Quorn Review:

I was fortunate enough to try out several Quorn products and must say I was truly impressed.   Quorn™ has an ability to replicate the taste and texture of meat exceptionally well- better than any meat alternative that I have tried!   I had the chance to try Quorn Chik’N Nuggets, Quorn Chik’N Patties, and the Quorn Gruyere Cheese Cutlets.

chick'n cutlets from Quorn

I prepared the nuggets as a snack for my kids when they came home from school and they really liked them.  They were so simple to make, I just heated them in the oven and served them. I like that my kids were having a healthy protein snack that they enjoyed.   I used the Quorn Chik’N patties for my lunch and I loved that they were easy to prepare in singe servings and I just put the patty between two slices of good bread with some lettuce and hot pepper jelly and they were a nice warm, healthy lunch for me. The Quorn Gruyere Cheese Cutlets made a nice dinner and everyone loved them (except my daughter picked the gruyere off of her’s because she doesn’t like melted cheese!)  I enjoyed all of the Quorn products that I tried and they are great to have on hand to cook up something healthy quickly.

Quorn also makes Quorn grounds which you can substitute for ground beef in recipes like this one- http://www.quorn.co.uk/recipes/sweet-chilli-wrap/
