Quorn Chef's Selection Sausages Garlic & Parsley

From time to time I like substituting meat with vegetarian alternatives such as Quorn because they're often lower in calories and fat. Also, when it comes to sausages, I'm always a bit suspicious about the ingredients so tend to prefer the vegetarian option. 

This week it was the turn of Quorn Chef’s Selection Sausages which are flavoured with wild garlic and parsley. These are decent sized chunky sausages and each one has 104 calories.

According to the pack:

'Quorn Chef’s Selection sausages are: The tastiest ever, extra-succulent meat free Quorn Sausages packed with wild garlic & parsley’.

They have half the saturated fat of a premium meat sausage and are a source of protein. Each 240g pack contains four large sausages which can be grilled, baked in the oven, cooked on the BBQ or in a frying pan on the hob. The sausages need a light coating of oil before cooking, and for this bit I use a spray oil such as Fry Light.
Before Cooking
The verdict in my household was mostly positive. Personally, I loved the herby flavour which is quite strong. My eldest son hadn’t spotted they weren’t meat, mainly because of the strong herby taste. My youngest loved them, as did my husband who, after a lifetime of eating meat, is starting to enjoy these meat alternatives. Only one child said they were too strong (well you can’t please everyone) and wouldn't finish. Everyone agreed they are filling.

After cooking
Quorn Chef's Selection sausages are sold in the chilled section in supermarkets and they can be frozen.

About Quorn: Quorn Wild Garlic & Parsley Sausages are meat free and made with mycoprotein. Mycoprotein is a nutritious, meat free form of quality protein, naturally low in fat and high in protein & fibre.
