Vegan Quorn pieces

Evening everyone,

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.

I blog about vegan and cruelty free products.

One thought on “Vegan Quorn pieces

  1. The only problem for me is that they have given with one hand (it’s vegan!) and taken with the other (now it has wheat in, boo!). Waiting patiently for vegan, gluten free Quorn…
