I have been a veggie all my life, but up until fairly recently I was a veggie that didnt like vegetables! In the past year or so I have been discovering ways I can eat more veg and have found I really enjoy them now, especially when incorporated into a yummy meal, such as spag bol! I am a university student and am trying to eat healthier on the cheap, so when I saw this mince on offer for a pound at Asda I decided to give it ago (it has now gone up to 1.89 which is still very good).
For those of you who don't know, quorn is a meat substitute extracted from a fungus (dosn't sound very appetising does it, but trust me it is yummy). It is very low in fat and calories, so even if you are not a vegetarian, if you are looking to loose a bit of weight simply swap the meat in your regular meals (such as spag bol, chilli or cottage pie) for quorn to save loads of calories - when mixed in with other ingredients many meat eaters I know cannot tell the difference. In the standard frozen bag you get 300g, although you can buy it fresh with 350g or a frozen family bag with 500g.
My mum has been using quorn mince for ages now and even though I enjoy it I used to always turn my nose up at it when she suggested it for dinner (I am a very fussy eater and never seemed to fancy it) however now I live alone I have discovered I love it in a spag bol. It takes about 15 minutes to cook- I fry it in a pan, then add some peppers onion and garlic then chopped tomato and then throw it over a plate of spaghetti and top with cheese, divine!
Quorn is full of protein and other nutrients, so to all the meat eaters who bang on about how meat provides us with all our essential nutrients and therefore veggies must be lacking-well they are quite simply wrong! I recommend everyone try this product, veggie or not. If you are a veggie with a meat eater in the family who turns their noses up at such products- I suggest you cook them a meal with a quorn product in without telling them and see if they notice, I bet they don't!
Summary: easy to cook, healthy, low in fat yummy meals!
