Is Quorn Good? (Product review!)

Quorn veggie food products are meal staples for lots of vegetarians. They now also have no-egg foods available so vegans can also get in on the action πŸ™‚

There are over ten tasty products available by Quorn. I’m going to go over these four today and then update this post as I try the rest!

Quorn is definitely plant based as the key protein source used here is called Mycoprotein – a single-cell organism sort of like fungi. There are articles that suggest it’s a type of mold. One of the things that make this type of protein unique is the texture. The way the proteins grow make for a tender mouth-feel, as opposed to soy which had spun proteins that produce a distinct ‘chew’.

According to the food package, some people have adverse allergy-type reactions when they consume Mycoprotein.

In my house, we’re not allergic and we enjoy these products as a cool alternative to soy-based veggie burgers etc.

Being less familiar with their vegan foods, I couldn’t wait to try these spicy chik’n patties.

Upon tasting I found out that they are not very spicy. They also are a little dry, I needed extra ketchup. And they’re small in diameter as well.

Would I buy again? Sure, if I needed a chik’n product this were the only one available πŸ™‚

Next, these grounds:

This is good for all types of things! We like tacos around here and this is what we commonly use for the “meat”.

Grounds are also tasty for hamburger helper type of meals as well as pasta and chili 🌢️ That reminds me, I make a great Chipotle chili! I should do that again soon hmmmm…

Now, what about these?

I recently tasted a stir-fry made with these and it was wonderful. The application for these are pretty universal, honestly. They’re great in pot pies and casseroles. Good for those times when meat eaters and vegans share a meal together.

Asian spices go really well too. Hellooo sweet chili oil!

Last up:

Yup, my plant-based son Legendary loves these. It’s nice to be able to give him a popular food that is not made with the popular crappy ingredients.

Good to go! I will update this post as need-be πŸ™‚

Update: new packaging spotted!
