You can marinate Quorn from chilled or frozen. To allow the flavor to be absorbed, we suggest marinating for a minimum of 30 minutes, but you could leave it to marinate overnight. The longer the marinating time, the more the Quorn product will take on your choice of delicious flavors. If marinating overnight, make sure you keep the mix in the fridge.
Cooking with Quorn using a slow cooker isn't recommended, as cooking at low temperatures for a long time can change its texture. Please follow the cooking instructions on the package for best results.
