I'm thinking about getting that for Easter.

I tried Tofurkey - didn't like it at all. Then I tried Field Roast, and thought it was okay. Then I saw Quorn makes a roast too - has anyone tried it?

I had it at Thanksgiving. Have you ever had a cheap, chopped and formed, turkey "loaf"? That's exactly what it reminded me of. It did taste just like turkey, just not like good turkey. I tend to stay away from things that "taste" like meat. The texture was thick, sliced easily, smooth as opposed to grainy. You would definitly want gravy as it is dry. I'd never want it again, but it was interesting to try. I got it on sale, of course!

Many people here seem to like it. I've never had field roast (seitan?) and hated Tofurkey deli slices.

I guess there isn't really a good veggie turkey roast ? :/ Though I still want to try it, I can't imagine it tasting bad - since they're "chicken cutlets" were so good.

It is awesome. If you liked real turkey during your omni days, you will probably like this. The flavor and texture is EXTREMELY close to the real stuff. I highly recommend it, especially if you're a fan of other Quorn prodcuts.

I had it for Thanksgiving, and I thought it was really good! Definitely have gravy, I thought it was pretty dry. That may have been because of how we cooked it, though.

Hello.



I tried the Quorn Turkey Roast a week before Thanksgiving to see if it was something I liked. I didn't want to end up at the parent's house without anything to eat. (C:

It was an okay product, but the flavor left a little to be desired for me.



Oddly, I liked the Tofurkey Roast better. I say it's worth a shot if you can find it on sale.

I loved the quorn turkey roast. I don't care if it's a meat substitute - I loved turkey before I went veg and this tastes just like white meat turkey to me!

I'm phasing out Quorn stuff as I'm going vegan, but I enjoyed the Quorn turkey style roast (it made xmas with my folks bearable), it's got a smoother texture than real turkey, but tastes pretty good. You would need to put some gravy on it as it is a bit dry.

I made it for Easter dinner, it was good. I cooked mine for too long and it dried out a bit. When I let it to sit out on the table to cool, I took a bite an hour later or so and the moisture was back! So weird. Deeeeeeeeellllllllcious.



Next time I make it, I'm using a roasting bag

I tried Amy's meatloaf and I put some mustard and creamy horseradish sauce on it and the problem was, it actually reminded me of what meat actually tastes like. So to me, having something that tastes so close to meat defeats the whole purpose. The whole point is to have foods that taste nothing like meat - so no more of the Amy's meatloaf for me.



I do really like horseradish sauce though and it goes really well on baked potatoes.

*shrugs*... I've always thought that Mock Meats were there to replace meat? Was I wrong?

The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That is the essence of humanity.

I have Quorn Turkey Roast every very year for Christmas and I really like it but I think it needs sauce/gravy to go with it because it can be dry. I also like it in sandwiches too!

That's the top thing I would miss if I made the switch.

I love how many meals I can get out of 1 roast. The last one I bought was on sale for $5. They usually run about $7. I want to try the roasting bag, next time I will!

They're about £5 here, but go so far that they're well worth it. This isn't fair, I'm so hungry but my mouth hurts too much to eat lol. I'm craving Quorn turkey roast on a roll with cranberry chutney so badly.

I was told to avoid using the right side of my mouth until tomorrow, so it's more toast-nibbling for me, even though the numbness is gone.

mmmmm!! Quorn Turkey Roast! Before I was veg*n I use to eat it when I mum made a big Sunday dinner, to be honest I never really saw much difference, infact preferred it I suppose! Although I have never cooked it myself, seems silly making a big dinner for just me. So every now and again I harass my mum into making it when I'm going home!
