Frugal Queen, a champion UK blogger often uses something called Quorn in her cooking. It is suitable for vegetarians and made from mycoprotein(fungus), egg white and barley malt extract. High in protein, very low in salt and fat and no cholesterol so it will be a great product for our health too.
Three weeks ago I 'went off' meat as well as coffee, Vegemite and cheese so we've been having many more vegetarian meals...it's Spring here now fresh, light food is so much more appealing than meaty stews. Over the years I've made many vegetarian meals and only eaten very small portions of meat and chicken. With a coming rent rise in November that will push us under the Poverty Line for the first time in my adult life I am keen to further reduce the grocery bill.
This is the Quorn mince, a 300gm bag costs $5 in Coles in the freezer section. There's no need to defrost it and it cooks quickly.
I made Chilli con Quorn last night with lots of dried chillies, corn and red kidney beans and it was really very good. One bag of Quorn used this way will easily make 4 meals. We had some with leftover potatoes and will finish it off today.
Have you used it yet? Do you have other vegetarian meals that are firm favourites at your house?
Have a wonderful day,
Hope your day at golf goes well, Mum, and you keep dry! I love you!
