    The book says Quorn pieces or mince. I don't have the fillets. Looking on the Quorn website, I can't work out what is wrong with them as there doesn't seem to be anything else added.

    I only have the mince because I don't like the texture of the pieces. I just microwave the mince with vegies for a good few minutes. Normally I have half Quorn and half cottage cheese, add some herbs and pepper.

    I see the meal on SS+/810 just like a pack in many ways - it's about nutrition.

    I really like it too, and I'm not a veggie! It's yum, and you get a lot of it.

    its the frozen stuff ive got, will dry fry it and give it a whirl i think, if i dont like it ill disguise it in something for the kids ;)

    i did see the mince as well but 1 thing i really hate is frozen mince, just dont like the bitty texture of it.
    i would have thought the fillets were the same as the pieces just bigger.

    There is a reason that you can't have the fillets, but for the life of me I can't remember what now!!

    Onion! There's chunks of onion in them. Same as the sausages etc.

    Oh just realised the ingredients list for the low fat fillets isn't actually showing up on the site. Must be something in them.

    Don't think I would have either, it's only that someone has mentioned it here before, I think last summer.

    Never been too keen on Quorn pre CD, but its amazing how you tastebuds change after a good while with no regular food. I prefer the mince to pieces, dry fry with grated courgette/mushroon etc, but i do tend to add loads of seasonig. I use curry powders and Shwartz 'no salt - season all' in loads of stuff. Often add half a spicy tom soup to make a sauce. Top it with cottage cheese (mixed with 'season all' too) and grill for a bit. Yum....
    One problem though, i can never eat the amount of quorn indicated on 810 in one meal, hence the split with cott.cheese and then half it again into two meals....i ate it all once and felt bloated and horrible for ages after, terible stomach ache. But maybe you get used to it.....? Enjoy xx
