Why have you created this Quorn?
A review of Quornes so called 'Lasagne'. Recently I have found myself conscious of the suffering of animals and so I have found myself attracted to a vegetarian lifestyle. I have had my reservations about making the switch for a while mainly because I felt I would be missing out on good tasting food and would be resigned to some less than stellar options. I was however, convinced by a trusted friend (Not so trusted anymore I'm afraid) that quorn products offer a satisfactory alternative to the real deal. With this reccomendation I decided lastnight to buy the Quorn Lasagne. Here is my assessment. Where to begin? The evening started well for me as I was relaxing at home and enjoying some well earned television. This general state of well being, unfortunately, didn't last. The instructions offered me two options to cook this meal, oven cooked or microwaved. I choose microwaved, a fatal decision. As soon as the lasagne was done in the microwave it was clear many poor decisions has been made on my behalf. I removed the lasagne from the packaging onto my plate. It was rubbery and had zero structural integrity. With my best efforts I tried to give the dish some integrity and I flopped onto my plate, what a mess. To be blunt the first bite was an insult. The cheese was flavourless and the pasta was bland. Where is the flavour so thought? Thankfully I had plenty of pepper on hand, I tried to salvage the dish. Unfortunatly all this did was mask the unpleasant experience of eating this Lasagne. Each bite was more miserable than the last. Bland, boring and scarring. Perhaps if I had chosen oven cooked it may have had a fighting chance. The experience has left me questioning my friendships and whole choice of lifestyle. These moral dilemmas I can find answers to. The answers come relatively easily, that is, in comparison to the biggest question I am left pondering. Why have you created this monstrously, Quorn? I'm off now for a steak. - Kane
Nice texture but flavourless. I added Italian herbs and black pepper to try and help make it more palatable.
Tell us why it's 400g..was 500g
For a mother, who due to vascular dementia, can be difficult to feed this is an absolute gift. She loves it, and I can't recommend it enough, especially with a garden salad.
Really tasty and only 350 calories, I am not vegetarian, but I actually prefer it to the ones with meat as there are no gristly bits! A lovely hot and cheap lunch. Packaging is annoying to take off, but still a winner.
it is supposed to be añ improvement to the previou
it is supposed to be añ improvement to the previous one but it is not the same. I prefer the old oné it is also smaller and hardly has any sauce.
Not very nice since the change :(
Not only have they changed the size of the meal they have also changed the recipe. It is awful, nowhere near as nice as it used to be.
If it ain't broke...
My family who are not all vegetarian all loved the previously sold Quorn Lasagne before this new recipe arrived.It was light and creamy and tasted of mince and tomatoes.Plus there was loads of it for very little money.New Recipe Love It Lasagne is so disappointing ~ I won't buy it again.It is stodgy and hardly creamy at all.There is an overwhelming taste of stale dried sage that coats your mouth for ages afterwards and it's about 1/3 the volume for twice the price.Plus you can't peel the plastic off after heating without hacking at it with scissors. Sorry Quorn you've shot yourself in the foot here. Shame.
