Quorn Mini Kiev
Advantages: See Review.
Disadvantages: See Review.
A few weeks ago I tried my very first Quorn product (their mince) and liked it so much it inspired me to go hunting for other Quorn products to try out and to see whether they were just as good as the mince. Now I really like the Bernard Matthews Mini Kiev's and these Quorn style Kiev's looked a lot like my usual ones so I thought these would be a really nice thing to try out and see if they could take the place of my meat Kiev's.
of which sugars 0.2g
Fat 2.2g of which sats 0.8g
Salt Equiv 0.25g
And bearing in mind that those values are PER KIEV! these are actually pretty bad for you calorie wise so they are definitely meant for a treat and I don't recommend you have them often at all. I thought vegetarian food were supposed to be healthy!
1 Box Contains Around 10 Kiev's
I think at real price they are around £4 per box which is quite expensive.
Preheat your oven to 200c/400f/Gas mark6, pop however many Kiev's you need onto a baking tray and cook them for around 15 minutes straight from frozen.
Now the box that these Kiev's come in suggests that you serve these Kiev's with carrots, broccoli and other vegetables but I chose to have them with chips, which was probably even more unhealthy for me.
These Kiev's are really nice to eat but I found myself worrying about those 41 calories every time I put one in my mouth and wondering how on earth there is so many in this little ball. Having said that though they are really soft and actually taste quite like chicken and they are really juicy and don't taste artificial and fake like some vegetarian foods I have tried.
I have one issue though. The sauce did not look or taste like real kiev sauce it just sort of sits in the middle of the kiev and while it does taste nice and really creamy that isnt the kiev sauce I like. The normal kievs I have have that lovely runny, squirty sauce in the middle that is piping hot and in my opinion the best part of the kiev but these Quorn ones did not. They do taste nice but not nice enough to turn me veggie.
These are nice but just not good enough to turn me from my real meat kievs and I think it had a lot to do with the sauce more than the "chicken". I do find it pretty amazing that Quorn can manage to make fungi taste like meat because these really do taste like proper chicken but at 41 calories a pop I would rather eat meat. I was left a bit disappointed by the second Quorn product I tried and I wouldnt really recommend unless your a proper vegetarian because I think meat eaters would prefer normal kievs.
Thanks For Reading
