One comment

  1. It’s a real pity that the majority of your products are not egg-free. Being a vegetarian with an egg allergy (I am NOT a vegan) for over 40 years, I find that your egg-free products have no real taste. Sure, you can use egg alternatives in your mainstream products.

    • Hi Fred, not all of these recipes use Quorn products, some are regular vegetable-based dishes. However, Quorn does do a range of egg-free products as well. We hope you can find something delish to cook without eggs on this list.
