      filling snack

      When I was a child we used to holiday quite a lot in Cornwall and often had cornish pasties as a snack whilst we were out, or as part of a meal when we got back to our caravan or cottage. So when I first saw these quorn pasties I was quite excited to try them. I quite liked them and then they disappeared and I couldn't find any anywhere; but now they are back - which is good.

      These pasties can be found in the frozen department of most supermarkets, they come in a cardboard box (which can be recycled) with 2 pasties in for the price of £1.99. This does seem quite expensive when you can get 2 cheese and onion slices for £1 from Asda, but hey these are advertised as vegetarian so they will be expensive.
      They are shaped a bit like a semi circle with the rounded part being where they are sealed.

      The pasties are advertised on the box as being made with quorn mince, onion potato and swede.

      **************** Ingredients *****************

      Puff Pastry (Wheat Flour, Margarine (Palm & Rapeseed Oils, Water, Salt, Emulsifier: Mono- and Diglycerides of Fatty Acids), Quorn Mince (11%) [Mycoprotein*, Rehydrated Free Range Egg White, Roasted Barley Malt Extract], Water, Swede (6%), Potato (6%), Carrot, Onion, Wheat Flour, Salt, Flavouring, Black & White Pepper, Leek Powder, Yeast Extract.

      The pastry is just like any puff pastry - messy. If you are eating it with your hands then the crumbs go everywhere but that happens with any pasty.
      The filling is nice it is quite well packed with the mince, and you get some white things which could be the swede or potato and the odd carrot. It is tasty (quorn is bland alone) because of the flavours and the onion.

      These are best cooked from frozen and take about 25 minutes on 200C. I don't grease the baking tray but as I have mentioned in the past, I rinse the baking tray so it is a bit wet, and then I put things on and put them in the oven and I never have a problem with things sticking.

      I have these pasties both cold for dinner at work or hot with veg, potatoes and gravy. They are good either way but hot wins on taste slightly, as when they are cold they taste a little bit greasy. I find them quite filling and a nice change cold for dinner.

      They don't look like the cornish pasties did in Cornwall as I remember them being sealed along the centre and even though I can't remember the taste I know these will not taste like them but these are probably tastier as more flavours are added to vege food because quorn is so bland.
