Quorn Mince Review
These were currently on offer at Co-operative Food this week for only £1.09 along with the Sausages and Chicken pieces. What I was surprised was how much “mince” was actually in the pack, there is quite a bit of mince although it doesn’t look like from just looking at the pack.
We cooked this in the frying pan with NO sauce just so we could taste its real taste, obviously you will be adding your sauces and herbs to it but we needed to see what it was like just out the pack because some people may want to do other things with it in the kitchen.
It looks a bit like mince but the texture is like a dry scrambled egg when you bite it and the flavour is truly bland and I would say flavourless but there is a taste but its definitely not a meat taste. Its almost a plasticy taste that is hard to pinpoint and then disappears into a slight bittery aftertaste. Granted this is for mixing with sauces etc.. and I guess you’ll have to with this product so I imagine this is used only for the look and texture of mince purposes and not for taste. It may feel that I am being a little hard on this Quorn product because it is vegetarian after all, but thats not it, Quorn have a lot of good tasting meat free products and there are other meat free mince products on the market that are better tasting than this. Maybe this is one to pass up.
