Quorn Mini Kiev
Advantages: High in protein like normal kievs
Disadvantages: Terrible taste and texture
Even though I do eat meat I'm a fan of many Quorn and other vegetarian-targeted products, but these just really do not work. The bland, tasteless squashy texture makes these all round unpleasant. With a regular chicken Kiev, you get the crunchiness of the crumb, with the softness and delicious flavour of the chicken and the garlic butter ties it all together.
But instead of chicken, there is Quorn. Quorn only works well if it is flavoured well, with gravy or a good sauce. Without it, Quorn tastes a lot like cheap brand kievs that are mostly rusk. The filling instead of garlic butter is a creamy sauce with garlic and cheese, which instead of flavouring the kiev, just seems to fill your mouth with a garlic odour, and leaves a big squashy blob of Quorn in your mouth for you to chew on. The crumbing is just as bad, it is very fine and may as well not be there, it's the kind that every few seconds you hear a crunch sound as you chewed a slightly bigger bit, you won't be able to taste it though.
They do still provide you with similar nutritional benefits that a chicken kiev would provide you, so are good in this respect, and combined with some carbohydrates and veg will produce a good for you meal, it just won't do anything for your palette. However, I don't recommend them on any other levels.
