    Hi

    When I was doing CD, i used the Quorn chicken style pieces and the fillets. The plain ones, not the breaded or flavoured.

    Quorn | Ingredient

    Hope that helps.

    I found the Quorn sausages quite palatable and the quorn mince.

    The swedish meatballs were o.k. too. The sausages need some ketchup on them and the quorn mince needs some kind of ragu or tagine sauce.

    It is a personal choice; I tried the fillets and I couldn't eat them at all. The taste and texture - ugh! However, friends use them and seem to like them.

    So, as its a new thing you may find a bit of trial and error.

    only quorn chicken style peices or fillets for AAM i think. some of the others are coated or have different ingredients in them.

    follow the curry/chilli recipe as you would for normal mince/chicken. The quorn mince/ peices need cooking as per the packet instruction, but once its cooked just use it like the recipe suggests xx

    yep, as keelie says.

    also...try mixing up a tiny bit of honey with a dollop of wholegrain mustard. then using a basting brush, brush it on some quorn sausages and fry in fry light. its gorgeous.

    awww i hate talking about food when im SSing lol

    ooh, not for AAM week. everything has got to be plain.

    yeah, sorry!!!! if you start adding sauces etc you are very likely to come out of ketosis. the AAM week is designed to keep you in Ketosis whilst providing you with the health benefits of protein etc. I think it also helps to speed up your metabolic rate.....

    we just have to dream about quorn curry for now!
