Let me first tell you a bit about Quorn as I am not sure how popular it is out of the UK. Quorn' is the brand name for a range of meat-free ingredients and meals available in all UK supermarkets. Quorn is versatile and quick to cook. The mycoprotein used to produce Quorn is extracted from a fungus, Fusarium venenatum, which is grown in large fermentation vats.
Quorn is produced as both a cooking ingredient and a range of ready meals. It is sold as a health food and an alternative to meat, especially for vegetarians. They are sold in the chilled and freezer food section of supermarkets. The binding agent for Quorn is egg . Please checkout www.quorn.co.uk for more information and the range of products they make.
All my Quorn recipes have been posted especially for my sons and all young students who love Quorn and are looking for quick recipe ideas.
