Quorn on the barbecue.

Last week I was invited to attend a BBQ workshop at the London Barbecue school in Peckham Rye. It was hosted by Quorn, the healthy protein meat alternative brand.

We had the opportunity to prepare, cook and of course eat some fantastic summer dishes made using Quorn products. There were experts toguide us and we learned more about barbecue techniques such as using wood chip and charcoal for flavour. I am used to using a gas barbecue so any tips and tricks for charcoal grills are always more than welcome.

I am not a vegetarian but as a family we are making an effort to enjoy more meals without meat. The facts that Quorn has 90% less fat, 50% fewer calories and has 500% more fibre than lean meat are also certainly going to help me with my #FatToFitter efforts too.

As part of the event we were able to cook and sample four different barbecued meals using Quorn. The London Barbecue School has a fantastic location and set up. Four fabulous stations, each with a state of the art charcoal barbecue allowed us to both have fun and create wonderful dishes.

I will put the recipes in a later post and I’ll also be using Quorn to create a couple of barbecue recipes of my own. However I just thought I’d whet your appetite for now.

For those who are vegan or gluten intolerant and who cannot currently enjoy Quorn you will be pleased to know that this will change soon and both vegan and gluten free versions of Quorn are in the pipeling.
