Quorn yummy recipe

I went to a “Lifescore’ assessment at my gym where we looked at all my body stats, goals and diet. One of my goal is to go from “skinny fat” to “skinny fit”, notably my putting on some muscle mass. The trainer identified that my diet lacks in protein and with the current 1/2 marathon training, I am actually more prone to muscle wastage than putting on muscle mass if I do not eat enough protein.

I do not like meat that much (wether beef or poultry) and since I am not a true vegetarian I have never educated myself properly to get proteins from other sources such as pulses. I therefore decided to give Quorn a try as a meat alternative.

What is Quorn?

All Quorn foods are made with Mycoprotein. Mycoprotein is a nutritious quality meat free protein, a member of the fungi family, and naturally low in fat and high in protein and fibre.

How is Quorn made?

Quorn’s main ingredient is Mycoprotein, a nutritious member of the fungi family that is grown by fermentation similar to the process used in the production of bread, yoghurt and beer. Unlike other meat alternatives, there’s no strong aftertaste, and Quorn is great at absorbing the flavours used in cooking, making for great tasting meals.

I used the Swedish meatball ones and cooked them with onion, garlic, tomato sauce, basil. I also added chickpeas for extra proteins, petit pois and sweetcorn. I served it with spinach and Ebly (it’s durum wheat, I am very happy that I can now find it in Waitrose).

It turned out to be a rather tasty meal! And a boyfriend approved meal, which means a lot as he loves his steak. I will definitely keep experimenting with Quorn. It’s tasty, high in protein, low in fat and MUCH cheaper than meat!
