Video: Chicken Parma

Chicken Parma

After coming back from Australia, J couldn’t wait to try out cooking one of the dishes he ate while he was over there. This is his recreation of a chicken parma – you can see the recipe down below, as well as the video of how we made it.

This isn’t exactly health food, but it is pretty easy to make it vegan all you have to do is add vegan cheese instead of cheddar – or just cut the cheese out entirely! Most UK supermarkets now stock a good-quality vegan cheese in grated form, so you’ll be fully ready to go. read more

Quorn Aromatic Thai Bites

Quorn Aromatic Thai Bites

We hadn’t seen these before until we popped into Asda, so we definitely had to give them a try. These Quorn aromatic Thai bites looked pretty appealing from the outside, and we definitely liked the sound of them.

They are actually pre-cooked, so you can eat them right out of the packet. Not that you usually can’t with Quorn, since it’s not like meat where you need to kill off all the germs first, but still – these are actually designed this way. We decided to pop them in the oven to warm up as we were cooking some croquettes at the same time anyway. read more

Mash-topped mushroom and gravy pieless pie

This week we came up with some wonderful pieless pies, pretty much by accident. While wondering what on earth to cook for dinner, with depleted cupboards and a lack of inspiration, I suddenly hit on the idea of making a pie – without the pie.

Once we tried it, we knew we just had to make it again to film for you! It’s a great weekday warmer for these winter months, and can function as a Sunday lunch replacement too. read more

Quorn Fishless Fingers

Quorn fishless fingers

This is a review I have almost been dreading, because these Quorn fishless fingers were honestly one of the worst things I have ever eaten. I don’t know who came up with these, but they are completely grim on all levels. 

Apparently, I’m not the only one who thinks so, as several fellow vegetarians have commented the same to me. The thing is, most people who turn vegetarian really aren’t interested in fish. It seems that those who are remain pescatarian, for the most part at least. Fish is that thing you hold your breath while you walk past in the supermarket. It’s something other people eat. It’s gross and stinky. read more

Quorn Three Cheese Chicken Crispbakes

It’s always fun to try something new from an established brand, and these Quorn three cheese chicken crispbakes caught our eye right away. They’re part of the Quorn frozen range and present an easy option for those busy weeknights.

They come in at 160 calories each, which certainly qualifies them as a lighter burger. This is great for those who want to have a burger but still watch their weight. The way they are formed means that you can easily eat them on their own, without a burger: the outer crust is very crispy and they hold their form well after cooking. It is not too thick or hard when you bite into them, however. They have a sticky texture on the inside, much as you might expect from melted cheese, as well as chunks of potato. read more

Vine Post: Butternut Squash Lasagne

This is something I’ve always wanted to try, and it carries on our beloved trend of “putting stuff inside other stuff”. Rather than a traditional lasagne, this one is layered inside and around a butternut squash. There’s no pasta involved, which is great for those of you avoiding it, and it’s a lot healthier than the normal version. read more
