RECIPE: Has anyone tried quorn?
I was checking the news archives for something else when I found an article on a chicken/meat subtitute called quorn. This was the first time (I read the arcticle today) that I had even heard of it, yet the article said that it had been marketed (most popularly in Europe) since the mid 1990's. While the article focused on a consumer group warning of its dangers, I would like to know if anyone has heard of and/or tried it, in what parts of the country it can be found, and its cost. Supposedly, it is made from fungi, but as mushrooms provide trace amounts of protein (I don't know if they are complete proteins or not), I don't know what type of nutritional value it has, or even if it tastes good. I do know that I have exhausted my meagre repetoire of TVP recipies, and I haven't found many satisfactory ones on the internet or anyplace else. I know of only two meat substitutes: Those made of wheat and those made of soy derivatives. Besides these (and quorn), does anyone know of any others?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
