    I've got a packet of quorn pieces in my fridge - any ideas of what I can do with it (no rude suggestions, please!)

    Thank you!

    Pretty much anything that you would have done with meat pieces (though do add plenty of flavourings)

    I'm not fond of quorn, but have just made a concoction with some quorn mince I had in the freezer. Added peppers, onion, some tinned toms to help bind, herbs, etc etc. and will be putting it in a wrap for lunch :)

    You could use them in a stir fry?

    I really like quorn mince, tricked my boyfriend the other day, he's a total carnivore and found it very tasty... until he found out it wasn't actual mince haha!

    Hi guys,

    I know this thread is oldish but thought i'd tell u what i do with my quorn products!

    Well with the mince i just use it as normal in bolognaise, chilli's etc.

    With the quorn pieces i use them loads!

    I put them in the wok with spices or fajita seasoning and have them in wraps for lunch.

    I also marinate them in sauces e.g black bean, chilli etc for stir frys. Or cook them in a pan and add sweet n sour sauce to make sweet n sour quorn with rice!

    My fav tho is making curry! I make a big pan of curry and add the cooked quorn bits and leave it to simmer for ages till its done and they taste sooooooooo yummy!

    really u can do anything with them, that's all i can think of so far!

    Just thought i'd update this thread for people who are trying to eat less meat or other veggies who struggle with quorn! :)
    Hope this helps! :)

    oooooh i found this yummy recipe! i actually prefer it to real meat and theres no grizzly bits either bonus!!

    A colmans sausage casserole mix made up
    4 quorn sausages
    50g mushrooms
    1 onion
    200g baked beans

    Chuck it all in a casserole dish and cover, cook for 1hour!!

    Serves 2, 264 cals each, 5.4g fat each serving

    I suppose you could use all the other mixes and put quorn fillets in as chicken and mince as beef mice etc!

    luv katiexxxx
