Would Quorn be quite so popular if it were (accurately) described as 'industrially processed slime mould' rather than the rather misleading 'mushroom in origin'? It gives me and my daughter stomach gripes but I daresay it's a good deal for those it doesn't. Best add heat then.

Thanks, I love these... and they don't give me stomach gripes:)

Mmmm fake meat. I might buy some Fake Veggies to go with them.

Why do people that actively choose not to eat meat, want something that represents meat?

Heat added for price though.

just wait until the flesh eaters start saying 'you know plants are living to, you skin, boil and eat them' etc

forgetting that plants don't have a central nervous system or know they are alive.

but whatever, heat added. No1 is pretending they are any better for you than meat btw other than less environmental impact on the planet :thumbsup:

And deny yourself the natural vitamins and minerals that derive from meat? You're ignoring evolution, but I won't argue, there is a place for these.

Its just a bit annoying everytime someone posts a Quorn deal the thread is hijacked by trolls. Equally this happens when a KFC deal is posted. Just all seems a bit pointless. Its a deal, and no one's going to be converted either way on a forum.

Best way to cook these is on a George Foreman grill downstream from an angus burger.

Hot price.

thats my choice though, just as its yours to eat meat!
a lot of people dont eat vegetables which are full of vitamins, go and preach to them.

can't go wrong for a pound. i eat meat and quorn products depending on what i am having. instead of high fat meat products such as mince and burgers i us quorn versions for health reasons. i dont see why meat eaters have a problem with veggie products in the same way as i dont see why vegetarians need to spout their holier than thou attitude when meat products are posted.

It's a handy format like a burger. It makes sense to make something with an existing market of recipes, buns, manufacturing etc. rather than trying to make pyramid-shaped food blocks and have to find a special bap to put it in. Of course there's the ever-present threat of Quorn-flu making the jump to humans but it's worth risking killing off the human race for in my opinion.

Here's my favourite chili hotpot recipe for these, and it'll work for the meat version of course (Serves 2 as a main):

6 Sausages
Onion (Chopped)
Green pepper (Sliced)
Garlic clove (Crushed)
Tin kidney beans (Drained)
Tin chopped tomatoes
Teaspoon chilli powder
Half teaspoon Thyme
Some sort of cooking oil.

Grill the Sausages or apply heat in your favourite way. With the Quorn ones it's worth brushing them in oil before grilling to crisp 'em up. While they're cooking get on with the rest....
Heat 2 or 3 teaspoons of oil in a pan and gently saute (cook) the onion and green pepper until it's soft but not burned (about 5 - 10 mins).
Add the garlic and chilli powder and stir for about a minute.
Add the kidney beans, tomatoes and thyme. Simmer it for a bit until the sausages are ready then add the sausages. Simmer it some more until it thickens up a bit. Worry it with a spoon toward the end or it'll stick and burn. If it does stick, just move it about a bit and it'll come off.
Serve with some natural yoghurt or whatever as it's a bit spicy.

Stolen from someplace ages ago and probably adapted a bit by alcohol and me. All credit to the original author whoever he/she is.

Good reply :thumbsup: Codd it really is no good preaching to someone, you can get natural vitamins and minerals from OTHER sources other than meat, I choose to eat meat personally, but I don't preach to friends and colleagues that they should, its a choice, same way as student_mommy states a lot of people don't eat vegetables (and fruit for that matter) thats less of a balanced diet than getting all your protein and roughage from fruit and vegetables.

i am sure with a healthy balanced diet that included no meat you could still get all the vitamins and minerals that are found in meat from other sources.

Hah, all this fuss over a box of sausages. People will argue over anything.

I'm sure that by eating anything you fancy you can do it too. I've been a vegetarian for decades and I eat what I want without worrying about vitamins etc. The truth is in the western world we can eat enough to get all our requirements very easily. Unless you're on some sort of hideous diet where you eat virtually nothing or you've got a medical condition you don't need to worry. There's an industry of snake-oil salesmen geared up to convince you otherwise though....

as an omnivore I eat both, so I get the best of both. I normally go for the Iceland ones £2 for like 8 or something in a bag as it's normal price is good value. My wat of eating them is quite basic. Chop up some onion, and cut up the quorn bangers (2 is enough for 1 person), get it going with a little oil, salt to suit and then your done. I eat it with bread. It's good if your trying to loose weight, so your not eating meat for all your meals.

I'm kinda with you though. I wouldn't dream of eating this rubbish but not gonna clog up a thread trying to make a point. Oops, I just did.

I do wish omnivores would get off this thread and go eat some mexican sausages. The sooner all those sniffling porkers are eaten up the better.

mmmm glucose fed fungus and egg white just what the vet ordered, thnx but no thnx i like my fungus as nature produced it in the form of mushrooms like a tasty shiitake, and my eggs sunny side up, and in another half hour that is exactly what i will be having to go along with my grilled slices of pig :whistling:

The cats won't touch them. Actually as a vegetarian household with three cats we might well get through more animals than a house of omnivores with no pets. Carnivores are just so fluffy and funny though.

ye it is funny but as a food that was designed for animal feed it is strange that the animals then turn away from it :)
What gets me also is that people think this is a good deal as they compare the price to meat based sausage :thinking: when the cost of production is a fraction of the meat based sausage.

Guess i can not understand why some would pay a premium price for this artificial food?
ok you do not want to eat meat this i can accept but you would be better to buy the eggs and mushrooms and make something proper, it would be cheaper, better for you and a lot tastier with the real deal, but instead people are brainwashed into buying this preprocessed crap that they are trying to sell under the good for you tag.

Thats okay son.

It just makes me laugh how people honestly think a vegetarian will read a comment in this thread and thing "wow, yeah, give me a real banger..." or vice versa, a meat eater would think "yeah that comment's converted me to vegetarianism!" ... it just isnt going to happen on a forum.

That's right. If only people would buy natural food like burgers, KFC, turkey twizzlers. The reason they don't is because they can't always be arsed to go out of their way to eat something else. I'm not telling anyone what to eat here you notice. There are an awful lot of people who feel the need to tell me what I should be eating though.

Edit: Enough of this tripe, it's lunchtime!

If you read my above post I do not compare to actual sausages, actual real sausages are much cheaper but it's not about the sausage factor it's just food that isn't meat. It makes a change, there are real vegetarian options to go for but this is also an option. I'm just trying to eat more healthily. yeh sure there are other healthy options to go for which i do but this is an option too. I do eat meat by the way today I had a chicken escalope with veg (Sainsburys BOGOF £3, 2 in a pack) better than a full english.

I am so evolved I only care about myself, and the nutrients that sustain me. Which is why I only eat newly born human babies, under 3 weeks old.

Is it not possible that vegetarians are more evolved then meat eaters in terms of civilisation?

Which is more civilised, to use technology to cultivate a food stuff that sustains the population, or to continue with traditional agrarian culture where we capture, breed and slaughter animals for the same purpose?

Oh and any 'because it's natural' arguments will be discounted because it is a facile philosophically inept conclusion.

Civilisation and evolution FTW!

It's just a shape and the shapes that make sense for meat products often make sense for non-meat products. It's too much of a hassle to make square shaped burgers just to stop meat eaters from making stupid comments.

i was in sains today and picked up the bramley apple sausages and chili beef style burgers (1/3 off)
the chicken style southern burgers were half price and the frozen beef style burgers only a £1.

i'm not a vege but i like this stuff, always give heat when they are special.

i noticed they have new packaging too.

yes this stuff is so advanced that they are now trying to get it banned in America as it has can cause that many adverse reactions in people , long live GM crops & quorn, and yes i am with you stuff the farmers and go for evolution instead, only problem is where do we then get the eggs and milk to make the quorn? or even the glucose to feed the fungus? oh i forgot we have technology for that, better call spok (live long and prosper) (!)

One of the primary reasons for the development of Quorn was actually for human consumption. Well before it was commercially available, the focus was shifted to providing food for human consumption. It was basically developed to try and stop a predicted global famine as its high in protein and doesn't take much space to make - unlike meat from cows etc.

Quorn is good for you. Some people seem to think that all additives are really bad for you - not the case. I think quorn sausages are a better suggestion for a vegetarian who wants to eat sausages than "go mix up some mushrooms and egg"...
#39
I love a good sausage as much as the next woman(!) but these are tasty as well. Do them with some syn free chips (slimming world recipe) and eggs and they are yum yum yum!!! I don't care what they are made of. As long as you don't eat them thinking they will taste the same as meat sausages. They help make a great low fat filling meal.
#40
LOL @ everyone who thought my comment was derogatory, I was asking a legitimate question. I understand some of the principles for being vegetarian. However most of the people I know have to take vitamin supplements to compliment their diet, which to me is even falser than just eating a sodding animal!

Another Question (again not a mickey take): Why do some vegetarians only choose not to eat red meat?
