I am writing this at 6am and I am so tired, I have another day of work ahead and I just want to sleep. Last night I launched my domain with the help of my friends and my traffic went a little crazy, not sure if that will stay the same today but I was really happy when I saw my stats.
Today I’m going to review the Vegan pieces which Quorn released, when I was vegetarian Quorn was a staple, especially when eating at my family’s houses because it’s widely available and fairly affordable.
The first thing I noticed was a sort of sour smell when you fry it, it cooks quite quickly and looks the same as the non vegan variety. I had my first lot in a stir fry, it fell apart in my mouth and was moist but also had a kind of dryness when you ate a lot of it. It doesn’t have much flavour of it’s own and I didn’t think it was great at picking up the flavours of the dish, maybe if I marinated it first then it would taste better. I also ate a few pieces just fried in oil, it had a nice flavour when it was browned in the pan but I’m not sure that I found these pieces delicious enough to buy another bag. I’m not sure how much I paid as I lost my receipt, however I know that the cheapest place to buy this product is in ASDA, where the 280g bag is only £1.50. I think I’ll be sticking to Fry’s for now but I’m interested to see what other vegan products Quorn might release.
