As the Cost-of-Living Crisis and environmental concerns impact the availability of meat, FareShare Midlands is looking elsewhere to help bring protein into our warehouses.

One of these protein sources is well-known alternative meat brand, Quorn. Quorn are on a mission to encourage meat-free eating, to help our health and our planet strive.;

Stats from Quorns website

The Carbon Footprint of Quorn Mince is more than 95% lower than that of beef&rdquo

In 2021 [their] sites Carbon Emissions from energy showed a reduction of 83% compared to [their] 2012 baseline&rdquo

They have an extensive range of products and recipes available through their website, including meals plans, focusses on different cuisines, and tips for a healthy, balanced diet. But we wanted to also share some of our staff and volunteers favourite recipes that include some of Quorns products


Turn this Jamie Oliver 5-ingredient classic into a meat-free delight with 1 simple swap - Chicken pot pie with puff pastry | Jamie Oliver pie recipes
Swap out the chicken breast for Quorn
pieces or fillets. Just add the chicken into the onions along with a small amount of water and cook off for around 6 minutes (8-10 if frozen). Then carry on with the rest of the recipe and enjoy!

Or try out in Nadiya Hussain's super simple tray bake, swapping the chicken thighs for one of Quorns tasty products mentioned above - Chicken and rice traybake recipe - BBC Food


Use Quorns
Mince to make their delicious lasagne - Quorn Vegetarian & Meat Free Mince Lasagne | Quorn, unlike beef mince, you dont need to cook the Quorn mince in oil first, simple add to the sauce and youre good to go!

Inspired by another of Jamie Olivers 5-ingredient meals, you can make these outrageiously good meatball subs using Quorns Meatballs - Messy meatball buns | Beef recipes | Jamie Oliver recipe

This one is actually much easier to do using Quorns meatballs, as the construction part is done for you! All you need to do is skip steps 1 & 2, and jump ahead to warming your meatballs in a pan, along with the tomatoes and water. Let them cook off like this for about 15 minutes before continuing with step 4. Dont forget to spread the unused pesto on your bread buns instead, to add a delicious basil flavour to tie the whole thing together.;
