The recipe was tasty but all of the hard work was ruined as the quorn pieces disintegrated into tiny flecks of quorn, and what remained of the quorn pieces was soft mush that tasted slightly fishy - vegetarian quorn never acted that way before for me, it remained firm - so disappointing

Response from Quorn
