Recipe : Quorn Mince Faggots with Leek & Potato Mash

12th February 2018

With a baby on the way and the best intentions for the new year, I’ve decided that it’s time we started to look after ourselves as a family, and also the environment. Switching to Quorn is such an easy and achievable way to do this. We aren’t vegetarians but the benefits of eating Quorn just make sense, and it tastes delicious, win, win!

As a family of meat eaters we’ve never considered switching to Quorn mince, until now. Quorn contains Mycoprotein, an ingredient that cannot be used in any products other than Quorn branded products. An ingredient that is better for the planet, with 90% lower GHG Emissions, Lower Land and water usage than meat.

As a busy mother I don’t have time to spend hours upon hours cooking up delicious recipes, but what I do have is thirty minutes to throw together a perfectly healthy meal that the whole family will enjoy. A healthy meal such as my Quorn mince faggots with Leek & Potato mash. As you can see in my video this was so easy to make that Aria was able to prepare the main bulk of it, and, more importantly, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. (scroll to the end for a printable version of the Quorn Mince Faggots with Leek & Potato Mash recipe).

Not only is Quorn great for the environment, it is also low in saturated fat, high in protein, high in fibre and takes just 8-10 minutes to cook (dependant on whether using fresh or frozen) and can be cooked in your sauce with no need to worry about fat.

I love that by switching to Quorn we are able to turn a traditionally un-healthy recipe into a healthy recipe.

    I have made these twice, they have turned out amazing, lovely. I’ve wanted a vegetarian recipe for Faggots for a long time, I just changed it slightly for what I wanted them for, by making a gravy for them, as I am doing faggots in a large farmhouse bap, topped with garden peas, it’s delicious and something my Mom used to make for me when I was a boy. Thank you for this recipe.
