Some people think quorn is bland and to be honest some of it is and these fillets are one of those things.
But I still like them.
I have tried these fillets with roast potatoes and veg and they don't go. I find if you want them as a hot meal you need to cook them in a sauce with a good flavouring.
I now cook these and have them cold, they are high in protein so as my daughter has a long wait until her dinner on a school day I cook them in the oven wiith a bit of pepper on and she has them cold as a snack and I too sometimes take them to work like this. Protein is the best thing to keep you fuller for longer.
These can be bought from most supermarkets from the frozen department, they are quite expensive at about £2.20 for a bag of 6.
As I said earlier I have these cold so as I cook them in the oven I have to be really careful not to over cook them or they go hard and dry; not nice. I find 20 minutes max is fine but this is when the oven isn't pre heated.
On the bag it doesn't mention cooking in the oven only frying, hob and microwave. But I have only tried them grilled and oven baked, and I find they taste the same either way.
These fillets are also low in calories each fillet is 55 calories which I think is good especially as they are quite filling and not full of fat or sugar.
My daughter likes these better when I put pepper on but the odd time when I have over cooked them she has said they are very dry and get stuck in her throat. I find that the moisture isn't quite there if cooked for too long
Summary: good protein
