Grocery Find: A Meat Substitute That Tastes Just like Chicken!
Quorn has meat-free substitutes for chicken nuggets, chicken tenders, and ground meat.
Struggling with Meatless Mondays? You’re not alone! Cutting off one of the tastiest parts of your meal can be difficult when you’re a meat lover. However, we found a worthy grocery pick while scouring the frozen goods aisle of Landmark Supermarket: Quorn meat-free nuggets, chunks, and grounds.
Quorn creates their meat-free substitutes with Mycoprotein, a fermented, natural, nutritious fungus taken from the soil. Mycoprotein is high in protein, high in fiber, low in saturated fat, and has no cholesterol. Another plus? When you compare the environmental footprint of its production to that of industrial animal farming, Quorn products require a lot less land and water. You’ll be supporting a cause of sustainable eating and cooking!
There are three variants available in the Philippines. The first is a chicken nugget substitute—you won’t notice the difference. They are crunchy, delicious, and easy to cook. Fry them until they are golden brown and pair them with your favorite barbecue sauce.
Quorn’s meat-free chunks will remind you of chopped chicken breast—these are great for quick stir-fries mixed with your favorite veggies. Quorn grounds is their substitute for ground meat. Its versatility is wonderful: you can make chili bowls, lasagna, and pasta sauce with it. We also love how these substitutes cook through in only a few minutes! It makes for the perfect freezer staple on nights when you need to put together a quick meal.
