Even though it is teeny weeny mushrooms? And therefore spore-based?
[ neel washes his keyboard out ]
I was just trying to be supportive of the lasagne!
All gone now.
There are spores all over, we are surrounded by them -- all the time!
How do you sleep?
But you do. You know.
Barely - not with the spores out to get me.
Quorn is an evil concoction of the Fungi People, bronxelf, meant to destroy us all!
Quorn™ products are healthy, delicious and meat free. The unique ingredient in all Quorn™ foods is mycoprotein which is a nutritious member of the fungi family, as are mushrooms, truffles and morels, and provides the taste and texture of a full range of meat products and ready meals, but is entirely meat free.
okay so it's sort of like the mushroom version of Textured Vegetable Protein.
I'd probably like it. :) I like mushrooms.
It looks tasty! :D
Yes it is... but I like it better than TVP. Although I can eat TVP mince frozen. Yum. But that'sbad.
Hm. I shall have to see if Whole Foods Market carries it here. Sounds really interesting. Thanks for the info! :)
I don't tend to eat many meat replacement products -- I like vegetables, but Quorn is good.
Wow, that means I could eat it, too! :D
Well, not really because it has all gone.
Daz: your avatar kicks all ass.
Unfortunately it makes me think of Danny Baker. Arrrrghhhhh.
mmm quorn...looks like a very tasty lasagne...I always over cook mine because I like the top crispy :)
neel: Thanks! :) I recently discovered that my nickname is, apparently, also a laundry detergent, and decided to make the best of it. :)
It didn't really detract from it. But a bit less brown would have been good.
Oh, I so love lasagne. Make some next week, I will.
We're going on holiday for a week tomorrow...I intend to cook as little as possible...
Oh, where are you going? Uni starts next week, so consider me jealous. :)
staying in the UK, we're going to hide in the middle of sherwood forest...
We had quorn lasagne too, on Friday, and quorn bolognaise last night. It's great stuff :)
I just like good food :)
I am a vegetarian.
Went off meat completely. The smell of cooking bacon is the worst smell in the world, especially first thing in the morning. (I had a housemate that went on the Atkins, that was hell.)
Ovo-lacto vegetarian here, but very tolerant of other people's food choices, as long as they respect mine. :)
I'm not quite lactose-intolerant, but for some reason, I can't drink "straight" milk without getting sick, so I prefer soy.
I like rice milk. I just don't like milk and I can't overdo milky products or I get sore throats.
People often expect me to have extreme views on their food choices. I don't really care what people eat. I don't tend to upset myself over dead cows. I'd just rather not eat them myself. I'll wear them on my feet and steering wheel. Hmmmm.
I'm not fussy about eating meat, but I have to say that Quorn is delicious!!
Bizarrely, it is my dinner tonight.
H, that looks a lovely lasagne, but mine will be the "bung it all in" method. So we will be having Qourn with baked beans, onion, garlic, plum tomatoes, passata, beer/wine and anything else that may be in the cupboard. Along with some rice or pasta probably.
Anyone ever noticed how it tastes even better the following day?
puts hand up I am in the veggie corner too.
Eat dairy products but milk makes me feel sick too.
It does! Goes great in a lunch box! :)
How I wish it was sold around here :(
You do have quark, which we can't get here!
Can't we? I've seen Quark... somewhere.
I haven't looked recently. But it seems to be everywhere in Germany "Quark mach stark" (apologies for crap German) and so on :)
Yeah, rings some kind of crazy bell.
We made a chili lasagne last week, it were well fit. Lasagne, but with the ingredients of fajitas instead. or whatever the ones you wrap up are. Utterly lovely stuff, spicy, and the flatbread (I remember not names) went all dumplingy, but dumplings with loads of cheese sauce and refried beans and deliciousness over them.
Enchiladas? Ooooh yes. Lovely. Yum. And it's such a long time to go before it is dinner time.
The slogan was "Milch macht stark" (Milk makes you strong), but hey, close 'nuff! :)
I love quark... I don't understand why you don't have it. And oh, the dinner-plate sized eyes of my American host mother when I explained, "You know? Tastes like sour cream, but has WAY less fat in it??" Heh.
