Quorn Garlic & Herb Chik’n Cutlets.

14 Nov

As with all things in life, I am super picky about my faux meats. I find the Quorn makes some of the best ones but unfortunately they are not vegan, but only vegetarian. The texture and taste of all of their products are some of the best in the game, so of course their Garlic & Herb Chick’n Cutlets follow suit.

This is probably one of the best mock products I ever had. All around I thought it was great, the taste, texture and consistency. The breading was nice, with a great taste and of course they are super easy to make. 25 minutes in the oven and you have dinner. There is only 210 calories per serving and with that you get 14 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber.

As stated the only downfall of this delicious product is that it is not vegan but Quorn has gotten on the vegan train, so I suspect we will see these in vegan form in the near future. As with all Quorn products, they are soy free and all natural. Peep them below…
