In an effort to find products which contain more protein for a member of the family who is vegetarian, I have been trying different Quorn products, and giving the concept of quorn a second look since the modernisation of ideas and presentation to the public in supermarkets, rather than being a specialised kind of food that can only be bought in health food shops. The quorn range is quite amazing, though for this review, the product in question is Quorn mince. It comes in a frozen pack, and here it's quite useful that you can re-cover the pack and put back in the freezer, since the quantity of 350 grams is rather a lot of product for one solitary dish. I have ... Read the complete review

I am not a vegetarian, however my both my best friend and my girlfriend are. I have also spent some time working in a sausage factory, and as a result of the above, i like to think of myself as a vegetarian sympathizer. This means i pretty much don't cook any meat. I'll still eat it though. When ever i have anything that involves mince, ill always go for the quorn alternative. The thing i like about this is that there is no difference in taste what so ever. At least i can't tell a difference. However when you think about it, it seems so much safer to go for this. When you buy meat, especially cheap meat you havn't a clue what is in it. Or what condition the ... Read the complete review

This is a review for Quorn Mince produced by Quorn. Now I'm not a vegetarian but my girlfriend and I really enjoy meals such as chilli con carne, spaghetti bolognase etc and realised we are eating quite a lot of beef and intaking lots of fat and all the bad stuff we shouldn't also we were spending a hell of a lot on mince and wasting a bit. Forwarding to a trip to Iceland (the shop rather than the country) and noticed a 400g bag of Quorn mince going for £1, we thought hell give it a try. That night we had chilli can carne and decided to use the Quorn mince we bought and immediatly I realised how much easier it is to cook! After putting the rice on ... Read the complete review

I tried this for the first time today in a bolognese and I've got to say I'm dead impressed with it. It comes frozen in a 300g bag and the wicked thing is you can put it in the pan while it's still frozen and it still only takes about 15 mins to cook with the bolognese sauce. It's a vegetarian food but is also good for people who are trying to lose weight because 100g of Quorn Mince has only got 94 calories and 2g fat so you could have the whole of this 300g bag and it's still got less calories in it than beef mince. It doesn't look all that nice when it first starts unthawing because there are shedloads of ice crystals in it and it just looks a bit pale ... Read the complete review

I'm not a vegetarian but my partner is. To save the extra hassle cooking two different meals I cook without meat two/three times per week. Quorn (Marlow Foods) produce a wide variety of meat free products although Quorn mince is my preferred option. The mince is sold frozen, or refrigerated, it can usually be found with other Quorn/vegetarian products in the majority of supermarkets. I tend to buy frozen as it is cheaper and can often be found on special offer. A 300g packet costs £1.85 at Sainsbury's - £6.17kg, bought fresh 350g costs £2.47 - £7.06kg. When compared to beef mince, it is more expensive - Sainsbury's lean beef mince is ... Read the complete review
