Meat Free Inspiration for a Vegetarian’s Grill

Updated on March 26, 2013

Skewered Quorn Satay

Vegetarians hold the majority in my household, so being a vegetarian by proxy I'm faced with no alternative than to look for dishes that are appetising when it is my turn to cook, proving that a none vegetarian can deliver a delicious dish.

Eating vegetarian food or food without meat has an extra special satisfaction when considering your health, especially when full on a dish that was delicious.

This dish is the first time I tried Quorn without actually knowing it wasn't chicken and I was pleasantly surprised, it helps that the rest of the flavours explode with taste.

Based on chicken satay a popular Malaysian street food.

Charcoal grilled succulent skewered Quorn served with special satay sauce. Quorn satay is full of flavour even without the sauce.

This can be served with a salad or as they do in upmarket hotels with De-crusted white bread cut into triangles and sliced cucumber.

      It looks good but what exactly is Quorn? A plant? Is it like a soy burger? And yes, I enjoyed the lens!!

      I have never head of quorn before, but it looks just like chicken. I'm curious how it tastes. If it tastes like chicken without it actually being chicken I would so be interested in that. I'll have to keep my eyes open for any quorn that comes my way. Great lens.

      Enjoyed this lens. My son is a vegetarian by proxy as well. We all are when visiting or having he and my daughter-in-law over. I tried this last weekend and got good reviews. Will do the same with some with real chicken one of these days for just the two of us.
