Oooh, Chicken and Leek Pie, the quintessential British comfort food!
Here is a meat free version using Quorn Chicken Style Pieces. Melting in the mouth, it is fragranced with a subtle hint of mustard and has just the right amount of creaminess.
Quorn is made from a fermented mycoprotein (fungi) grown in the UK. Once collected the mycoprotein goes through a fermentation process similar to the ones used in the production of bread, yoghurt and beer. The resulting product is then textured, frozen and seasoned to resemble chicken, beef, turkey etc.
Quorn is considered a healthy protein source. It has a very similar structure to meat while being high in protein and fibre and low in fat. Per 100g Quorn Chicken Style Pieces contain 14g protein / 1.4g fat / 8.3g fibre and 0.8g salt.
Quorn Chicken Style Pieces have the taste and feel just like chicken. They are fantastic to cook with if you are trying to reduce the amount of meat you are eating. Ideal if you are in a rush, they take only 14 mins to cook on the hob.
If you are vegan, you can still enjoy Quorn as they have just launched 2 new vegan products in the UK.
