    Don't over-zap them in the microwave! The microwave at work is more powerful than I am used to and I have now got quorn pebbles instead of nice, soft pieces!

    Apparentely the only way to cook them is to put them in sauce a few mins before you serve and then they are soft. I've microwaved them before too, awful!!

    Can anyone tell me what is quorn? Is it meat or a meat substitute, if so what is it made of.

    It's made from mycoproteins, which is fungus. It comes in various meat-substitute like forms like 'chicken' strips or mince. I really like it, but my OH can always tell when I've used it instead of the real thing so there is a difference in taste, but I think it's quite bland at times so it's up to you how well you flavour it. I find, unlike tofu, it has a lot nicer texture.
