Meat Free Experience with Quorn

Tired of eating the same meat products? Worry no more! Quorn is now available in the Philippines. Founded in 1985 in the United Kingdom, it was recently acquired by Filipino snack-food company Monde Nissin last 2015.

Originally from the United Kingdom, Quorn is a product selection of sumptuous meat-free protein products. It is the world leader in meat-free food that enables you to enjoy healthier and more nutritious versions of your favorite meals – whether you opt for ingredient-type products that allow you to cook from scratch like fillets or grounds, or for ready-to-cook options like nuggets, burger patties.

One main ingredient of Quorn is Mycoprotein – a naturally healthy protein from Fusarium venenatum that is high in fiber, low in saturated fat, and has zero cholesterol.

Recently, I have tried the Quorn Meat-Free Grounds. I cooked my favorite Fusilli Pasta with Tomato and Cheddar Cheese Sauce.

Quorn Meat-Free Grounds

Here’s my personal recipe below:

Ingredients:

3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves chopped garlic
1 pc. onion bulb
1 can diced tomatoes
14 oz. fusilli (spiral) pasta
3 tbsp. grated cheddar cheese
2 slices of tomatoes for garnish
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Saute garlic and onions for 2 minutes.
  2. Add diced tomatoes and simmer for 8-10 minutes. Add Quorn Meat-Free Grounds.
  3. Season the tomato sauce with salt and pepper (if desired).
  4. Bring a pot of water to boil. Add few pinches of salt. Add the pasta and cook for 8-10 minutes or until al dente. Strain and return to the pot.
  5. Pour the cooked tomato sauce to the pasta. Add grated cheddar cheese and add tomatoes for garnish.

This is an easy recipe that can be prepared in less than 30 minutes. This will surely be a HIT for kids and even teenagers. It can be cooked in any occasion! I tried being a vegetarian before and it was so difficult. Quorn however makes it easier now. No need to eat boring and plain vegetable salad if you can eat a fun and tasty product like this.

  1. I am a bit embarrassed to admit, but I definitely am consuming too much meat. It would be a good change to have a little bit more variety of non meat product and still be able to have some protein in my diet. I think that Quorn is definitely worth a try.

  2. The Quorn sounds great option for us on vegetarian dinner night. Our home switch around meat and veggie night. I’ll def will check out!

  3. I haven’t seen Quorn anywhere around here. Although I will have to check out Mothers as I know they have a lot of these types of products. Always good to have alternatives in food.

  4. I’ve never heard of this! And it’s been around since 1985?? So interesting. I’d love to go meat free, too.

  5. With meat in short supply in some regions, this is very timely. Wendy’s ran out of beef for burgers. Walmart is even running low some places. We all need to look for alternatives.

  6. Usually, not a fan of those kinds of products as if I want to reduce my meat consumption I usually make some meals with other products like beans and tofu. But I have to say that that product your presenting does look good.

  7. I have never heard of this product before. But I looked it up, and apparently they sell it at my supermarket! lol, I will have to check it out the next time I am there. Although I love eating meat, I don’t always eat it.

  12. it’s a great option for experiencing something different I’m no vegan but I am tired of eating meat altogether, maybe it a lockdown
