We Love Quorn’s New Vegetarian Burgers

Quorn, the top-selling frozen meat-free natural food brand, introduced two new burgers- the Classic Burgers and Cheese Burgers- to their expanding line of meat-free eats.

Just like all Quorn products, these vegetarian burgers are made with mycoprotein, a blend of antioxidant-rich and protein-packed fungi. Mycoprotein is also completely soy-free and contains all nine essential amino acids. While it may sound a bit strange to eat a veggie burger made out of different kinds of fungi, keep in mind that because of their meaty texture, mushrooms, especially portabellos, make great alternatives to beef or poultry. In fact, singer Carrie Underwood, a longtime vegetarian, regularly eats Quorn’s cutlets as a meat-free, healthy and low-calorie protein source.

Here are the stats on the new Quorn burgers:

Cheese Burger (1 patty):

  • Calories: 100
  • Fat: 4 grams
  • Carbs: 8 grams
  • Fiber: 3 grams
  • Protein: 11 grams

Classic Burger (1 patty):

  • Calories: 90
  • Fat: 3 grams
  • Carbs: 8 grams
  • Fiber: 3 grams
  • Protein: 11 grams

As a huge fan of all Quorn products, I was delighted when they came out with two new veggie burgers. I loved them both , but I did not taste a strong cheesy flavor in the Cheese Burger. Both varieties had a nice combination of spices and flavors and the Quorn texture is both chewy and dense, making for a super satiating meal.  The burgers are best eaten immediately once they are cooked, because like any burger, meat or meat-less, they tend dry fairly quickly.

I often chop the burgers up and add them to a huge salad of greens, tomatoes, cucumbers and other veggies. Then I make a quick Dijon dressing as a play on the burger theme.

Quorn products can be found in the freezer section of your grocery store. If you can’t find them next to other frozen veggie burgers,  you might want to poke around the store to see if there is a natural foods freezer section. That’s where I regularly find my favorite Quorn products.

Happy eating!
