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 to cook, all I had to do is place the frozen Quorn and the chilli sauce into a pan and leave to cook, stirring occationally.
Next came the taste test. In fairness I could tell a slight difference in texture but hell ... what do you expect from mushroom? Aside from that I couldn't tell a difference from the real thing and had I not told you it was Quorn, I dont think you would know the difference even with the slight texture difference.
So ... cooking was easy and it tastes great for the full house it is so much better for you than beef! Per 100g Quorn will give you 229Kcal and only 15.2g which against 18.4g in beef is pretty good.
Mycoprotein 88%, rehydrated egg white (free range), roasted barley malt extract.
Energy 955KJ/229Kcal, Protein 23.1g, Carbohydrate Nil, Fat 15.2g, Fibre Nil, Sodium 0.3g
So in all, it tastes good, its easy to cook and in most cases it is cheaper than beef. Also you can keep it in the freezer and ccok it withough having to defrost it. Huge thumbs up!
Summary: Better than the real thing.
