Introducing Quorn to our family #ahealthyprotein

June 28, 2014


When it comes to the food I eat I have to be completely honest and say that I know what I like, and I stick to what I know I like (can’t imagine where Tigger gets his fussiness from). Mr Boo has always eaten a wide range of foods, I guess that is one of the perks of having parents who are chefs. From the moment we started dating he has slowly been broadening my taste buds and I now eat far more than I ever did (cue my expanding waistline). One thing we both have never tried is Quorn, something that I have always associated with vegetarians so why would I need to eat it? Over the past few weeks I have been introducing Quorn to our family…

All about Quorn

Quorn was launched in 1985 and is now sold in 16 countries worldwide. Quorn is produced as both a cooking ingredient and a range of ready meals. The brand has been praised for the nutritional value of its products as they are high in protein and low in fat, making it a great alternative to meat and a tool for the fitness conscious.

Quorn product range

After being sent some vouchers to try out the range I made a trip to our local supermarket to see what was available. With so many different options to choose from I opted for Quorn chicken pieces, Quorn peppered steaks and Quorn sausages. With a selection of both fresh and frozen products available it is worth checking in your local supermarket to see what you can stock up on.

To see the full range of Quorn products and a whole host of different recipes check out their website:

Family friendly meals

Having recently started upon the Slimming World lifestyle it has made me look at what goes into our family meals. Introducing Quorn to our family has been relatively straightforward and to be honest it has mad me keen to try more of the different products available as the preparation and cooking times are great for busy family lives but the food remains tasty.

Adding Quorn peppered steaks to some homemade chips and salad was a tasty treat for Mr Boo, whilst I preferred the Quorn chicken pieces as I tend t eat more chicken than any other meat. The Quorn chicken pieces are so versitile and can be added to stews, curries, stir-fry’s and even a fabulous Caesar salad.

One of my favourite easy to make recipes has to be Quorn chicken noodles which are not only tasty but Slimming World friendly too…

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…

Introducing Quorn to our family has been a very easy transition, with many of the Quorn products around or cheaper in price than their meat equivalent they have added a healthy protein to our diets without breaking the bank.

Have you tried Quorn?

Do you have any Quorn friendly recipes that you could share with me?

Disclosure: We received supermarket vouchers to purchase Quorn products FOC for the purpose of review.

    Interesting to see what a carnivore family thinks of Quorn! We eat a lot of it, but then we are vegetarian anyway. Not all veggies like it, some people have told me it disagreed with them. But we like the sausages and often have them for tea, the sliced stuff is good for sandwiches and the minced pieces is good for chilli and when it’s Mexican night. Hope you enjoy!

      I’m not sure what I was expecting it to taste like but I actually prefer the chicken pieces for both taste and ease of cooking.

    We eat it all the time! I’m a veggie and Badger is a gluten intolerant carnivore – but he will happily have quorn (not the beef flavour though as it has barley malt – gluten – in) The chorizo slices are a particular favourite and we regularly use them in omelettes, pasta and on pizza!

    Oh I used to love quern but can’t find it here 🙁 now that i am not eating as much meat would’ve been a great option..

    I’m a big fan of their mince because I can use it a bit at a time and it doesn’t all freeze as a clump as regular mince does. As a pescatarian it means we can all eat the same dinner! x

    Do you know I have only ever seen it as for vegetarians too – am inspired to try it now – thank you.

    I’ve not had Quorn for years, but sadly think my meat loving husband would probably complain if I suddenly substituted it for our main mean ingredients. However, if he wasn’t to know… A friend has managed to dupe her husband by using Quorn mince for over two years now and he’s none the wiser!

    We eat a fair amount of quorm as my hubbie goes veggie quite a lot. I love their quorn roast and it is so cheap! Mich x
