Product Review: Quorn ‘Hot & Spicy’ Burgers – by Tod Bradbury

It finally happened! After years of lobbying by vegans across Britain, Quorn has produced vegan products!

Quorn is probably the most well-known meat alternative in the UK, so to have such a big household name producing vegan food shows just how popular veganism is becoming.

The ‘Hot & Spicy’ burgers are very tasty. The coating is nice and crispy with the inside remaining tender and of a good texture. Despite their name, they are not all that hot or spicy but have a pleasant kick to them, which allows one to enjoy them, rather than running for a glass of water after every bite. Perfect for when you are feeling a bit lazy, the burgers go very well with vegan mayonnaise and BBQ sauce.

Serving Suggestion: The Ultimate Double Burger! – Assemble the burgers in a burger bun as follows: Burger, vegan cheese (I used Violife cheddar), BBQ sauce, burger, BBQ sauce, onion rings. Feeling healthy? Add some side salad.

As well as the burgers, Quorn have also brought out vegan ‘Meat Free Pieces’ and both products are currently available from selected Waitrose and Asda stores. Please note that the rest of the Quorn range sadly remains unsuitable for vegans.
