Made this for Christmas day and it was loved by all, very meaty flavour. Non veggies would like this. I think its good for just a Sunday roast too

I am the only vegetarian at my Christmas dinner table so I made this for myself. I was extremely .... extremely happy with the way it turned out. When I first saw the recipe a week ago, I was eager to make it as I regularly use Quorn products in my food and love the meaty texture.

Wow, I made this today and it's delicious, I used shitake and chestnut mushrooms and they worked extremely well we both loved the flavour and the nutty taste it really is a must for Xmas day or any day. I certainly will be making this in the foreseeable future thank you Quorn.
