A friend introduced the Quorn product to me - is vegetarian and vegan friendly whilst being high in protein and fibre and low in saturated fat and sodium. It sounded very good on paper so I thought it was worth giving it a try.
|Quorn Pepper + Herb Sausages $6.90|
|Quorn in the Pan|
|Stir-frying Capsicum & Onion in the Wok|
|Boiled Spinach w Soy and Sesame Seeds, Quorn Sausage, Beef+Capsicum+Onion Stir Fry|
1. Japanese style spinach: boiled spinach w/ Japanese soy sauce topped with sesame seeds (goma) and sesame oil
2. Quorn Pepper + Herb Sausages w/ a side of dijon mustard and tomato sauce
3. King Island Beef stir fry strips w/ capsicum and onion
After tasting the Quorn sausages, the entire time I was only thinking give me meat sausages any day of the week instead. It must boil down to individual tastes but there was something seriously lacking in terms of flavour and texture for me and very dry. It also left an odd feeling in my mouth. It was neither here nor there in terms of vegetarian food or fake meat product.
On the other hand, the Japanese style boiled spinach and the beef stir fry were absolutely delicious and I reckon just as healthy and certainly a good balance to any diet.
