    Hi,

    Seeing as Quorn is kind of expensive unless on offer I thought I'd start a thread of cheaper alternatives

    Tesco Meatfree, Lincolnshire Sausages, 6 pack, frozen 50g each

    Asda Meat Free, Mince, frozen 600g pack

    Both Syn free as checked on website

    Be careful because most of the alternatives aren't free (although there aren't many syns in them).

    Cauldron sausages - depending on what you have they vary I think between 1 - 2 syns.

    I got morrison's meat free mince and it is lovely and 2 bags for 3 pounds at the moment but it is 5.5 syns but a 400g bag goes a lot further and in my opinion tastes better than quorn mince.

    I have made a huge pot of chilli that will make 6 very generous portions or 8 normal portions

    If you have access to the SW website, you can look it up in there. Or if you have a syns directory, some will be in that.
    Otherwise put a post in the syns query section and someone will look them up for you.

    Have any of you tried the asda baked beans and meat free sausages - in a tim - approx 60p I think, and when i first started SW these were free, although I haven't got the password yet, so wouldnt like to say they still were - I'd guess they'd be quite low though!!!

    extra lean minced pork mix with dried sage and softened onion, mix it up divide into small burgers ( i can get 12 out of a 400g pack of lean pork mince) make a great substitute for quorn, tastes like a little sausage burger!!

    but if you put your mince in the freezer then defrost it and make the patties dont put the raw already defrosted meat bk in the freezer, cook the whole pack of mince (as little patties) and freeze once cooked if you dont need the whole lot.

    Sainsburys meat free meatballs (frozen) are 4 1/2 syns for the whole pack - they are really nice too.

    Tesco meat free frozen mince isn't free but I think the whole pack worked out at 4 syns so I still count it as free.....

    Im sorry but iv tried this stuff and it is DISGUSTING. I made a massive bowl of chilli with it and ended up chucking the whole lot out, i thought it looked like rabbit droppings.. and tasted so strong yet plain.. it was odd and totally un-edible (IMO LOL)

    No I mean if you cook a big pack of low sin chilli do you divide it by the portions you made it into for say chilli etc? Was multi tasking when I posted before!

    Yes you take the total number of syns for the entire recipe.

    My veggie chilli has 6 syns in total so 6 portions are 1 syn each

    Good job we all have different taste I loved the morrisons mince and hate quorn mince. But love other quorn products

    I divide it into the portions & work out the syn value per portion when I bulk cook
