Review and Recipes with Quorn Gluten Free

I’ll be honest and say that I’ve never tasted Quorn before, I am a meat eater but will often have vegetarian options. I’m always up for trying something new so when the guys over at Quorn got in touch to ask me to try out their new Gluten Free range I jumped at the chance.

Quorn now have 27 products that are gluten free (not all are dairy free so please check before buying) – you can check it out in the gluten free section of their website –> Quorn Gluten Free.

It’s great to see a company updating their product range to make it suitable for those gluten free – the products have the crossed grain symbol prominently displayed on the front of the packaging making it easy to pick out in the supermarket.

I opted to have try the Quorn meat free mince and chicken pieces and here are my thoughts.

  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon BBQ spice mix

  2. Add in the garlic paste, Quorn chicken pieces, pepper and onion
  3. Stir fry for 10 minutes
  4. Add in the BBQ spice mix and cook for another couple of minutes

After really enjoying the Quorn chicken I was looking forward to trying the meat free mince. I opted to use it to make a personal favourite of mine – gluten and dairy free cheese burgers. Again, I was really pleased with the results, try out my recipe:

I would definitely buy both of these products again, I’m on a high protein diet due to medical problems with my pancreas and this is a great healthy source of protein for me. It’s always great to see manufacturers bring gluten free products to the market so thank you Quorn, can’t wait to try the other products.

Enjoy!
