    I'm really into it at the moment and even on a red day I end up having more quorn than meat. I think jamie oliver & hugh f-w'stall have helped with that too. :rolleyes:

    I think the fajita strips are fantastic and lovely on a salad of mixed leaves with a glug of kraft low fat garlic & herb dressing. :eat:

    On the down side after eating quorn mince i'm blowing off like an old gas bag!!!:D

    I have found that I am using it more too, and have started using more meat substitutes over the last few years and the good thing about quorn is that it tastes ok too :) Haven't found the fajita strips yet! If that is a side effect of the mince, I will be more careful in future! LOL

    We tried the quorn that was meant to be minted lamb from morrisons I will not be trying them again It was the texture more than the taste that put us all off (4 of us tried them ).Are all meat substitutes of a similar texture is it worth giving diferent make a try xx

    I haven't tried the lamb, but the "chicken" pieces are pretty close in texture to chicken and takes on the taste of whatever you cook it with. I don't care for the soya mince either.

    Hi everyone
    I like the Quorn pieces and fillets - great for curries. Don't like the mince at all. The sausages are ok but I think it has to do with the colour can make dishes bland looking!!!! I shop at Asda and they have their own 'vegetarian range' and their own mince I love great for spaghetti bolognese, lasagne etc. They also do 'beef style chunks' and they are nice lovely in stew and scouse.
    Have been a vegetarian for about 10 years so always looking out for new products.

    It's ok in a sauce but wasn't a fan of it in a stir fry.

    Are the shops own versions free as well? I always thought they had a syn value?

    I personally think Quorn tastes like Play-doh lol. I've tried the sausages, the 'chicken' bits and the mince but I couldn't hack them! I thought the minted 'lamb' steaks were bearable though. I just don't see the point really- I'm a carnivore, I'm going to eat the real thing!

    Love Quorn. I make shepherds pie with the 'mince' although hubby won't eat Quorn, he likes his meat so I make 2 shepherds pies, one Quorn, one meat. Also have the sausages, chicken nuggets, chicken pieces.

    I've never been able to handle quorn, its the texture of it i think.
    We had some soya apple and rosemary sausages the other day though, think they were from asda, they were gorgeous!
    we like the cauldren mushroom burgers too.
