Quorn is an all-natural, meatless frozen food. It's been sold in the UK since the mid-'80s and is the top selling retail brand of meat-free food in the world. It is meat-free and soy-free, being made primarily from mycoprotein, an efficient and nutritious protein source derived from fungi. Yes, it's true: Quorn is made from mushrooms!
I'm always on the lookout for things that my kids might eat that aren't chicken nuggets. Quorn makes Chik'n Nuggets that fool the pickiest toddler palate. I was impressed. Impressed enough to buy a box of Cranberry & Goat Cheese Chik'n Cutlets. While not tasting entirely like poultry, the texture is very satisfyingly "meaty" and they are actually quite delicious. I baked them in the oven along with a couple of Turk'y Burgers for the kids. These mycoprotein burgers contain 50% less fat than normal turkey burgers, which are already pretty lean! I liked them most with a bit of cheese melted on top.
Here is a cross-section of the turkey burger so you can see how "meaty" the texture is. Even my cats gobbled them up and begged for more!
I'm definitely keeping some Quorn in the freezer for quick, easy and HEALTHY dinners.
Disclosure: I received a box of Turk'y Burgers from Quorn but I'd purchased the nuggets and cutlets myself. And I plan on doing it again soon.
