Quorn - such a funny word!

I worked late last night, but still managed to stop by the grocery store on the way home. I was looking for tofu for my salad, but couldn't find any. So instead I grabbed a package of Quorn 'Suprisingly low fat Chicken style pieces.'

Hmmmm - a bit of a funny name, but worth I try I thought. I have tried the quorn made to look like ground beef before and it was ok. But I MUST say these 'chicken like pieces' were REALLY yummy - and tasted like and had the consistency of chicken (that kind of freaked me out)! I have a bunch of it on my salad for lunch today - always nice to try something new!

However, I admit, I did have to look up exactly what was in it - as all the packaging said was 'microprotein' - whatever that means! Here's the description from the Quorn site. 'All Quorn products contain mycroprotein. Mycroprotein is a nutritious member of the fungi family, as are mushrooms and truffles.'

How they make mushrooms taste & look like chicken I will never know - but I do know it is GOOD!

Quorn is really good! You wouldn't believe it, but once, a vegetarian friend force-fed me the stuff, and I can say it's not half bad!

Oh, have you ever tried soy/carrot steaks? Not quite like real meat, but half way there... :)

I love the quorn stuff - and just saw that they sell it in the States too! Maybe they always have, but until I moved to London I never noticed! I am glad you liked it :)
