Bohemia, NY – On November [date], 2012, Quorn Foods, Inc. releases a statement on ways to enjoy a Thanksgiving with meatless meals, in response to a Seattle Times article by Michele Kayal on a turkey-free Thanksgiving feast.
According to the Seattle Times article, “Vegetarians have long known a Thanksgiving secret the rest of us are reluctant to admit — it’s all about the side dishes.” The article mentions that after you have had you helping of turkey and gravy, what you really go back for seconds for is the stuffing, sweet potatoes, and of course more pie. According to New York Times food columnist Mark Bittman, “Absence of turkey can be a very positive thing. Most people have roughly 360 dinners a year that have ‘absence of turkey.’ We eat it on Thanksgiving because we’re supposed to.”
The article raises the question of “Without turkey is it still Thanksgiving?” According to the article you should celebrate Thanksgiving as the holiday it is and focus your recipes and creativity towards vegetables and grains. The article also mentions that there are many different meatless meals to choose from, and that turkey is the only meat food you associate with Thanksgiving.
Quorn Foods Inc. knows that a turkey-free Thanksgiving could still be a delicious feast, and offers ways to achieve it. “Quorn offers a variety of meat substitutes, including our delicious Turk’y Roast with red wine mushroom sauce,” says Quorn representative David Wilson. “As for healthy vegetarian side dishes to go along with a meat substitute, our Quorn layered stuffed cabbage casserole is an easy and healthy recipe to please the palate.”
Quorn launched nationally in the US in 2002. Unlike other vegetarian food companies, Quorn uses mycoprotein: a naturally occurring, healthy form of protein that replicates the taste and texture of meat while being significantly lower in saturated fats and calories than meat products. Quorn offers a wide range of products including ready to serve meals, food for your barbecue, breaded meat substitutes, snacks and components to make your own meals from scratch. The wonderful taste of Quorntm meatless meals provides the taste of the foods you love without sacrificing nutrition.
