Meat-free giant Quorn has launched two vegan products: Spicy Tortilla Escalopes and Crunchy Tex Mex Nuggets.

Available from October, the plant-based escalopes, priced at £3.25 for a two-person serving, feature a citrus-infused Quorn fillet, and is coated in 'an irresistible nacho crunchy crumb'.

While the vegan nuggets, priced at £3.00, are coated in 'a scrummy spicy breadcrumb made with quinoa, oats, barley, and linseed'  - and will hit the shelves later this month. 

'A healthy source of protein'

"If, like the majority of the country, you and your family are now seeking to reduce your meat intake then these new arrivals should definitely be on your weekly shopping list," Quorn said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

"Tex-Mex food never fails to satisfy but can be heavy on meat and largely calorific. Well, say hello to a NEW, yet nacho ordinary Tex-Mex..."

'Big on flavor'

Quorn added: "Short on calories, big on flavor, totally meat-free and made with a healthy source of protein, which is better for you and the planet."

The new products, which have received approval by the Vegan and Vegetarian Society, are also low in saturated fat, high in fibre, and contain less than 250 calories per serving.
