    I do have a recipe somewhere....(famous last words), but, until it appears I'll try and remember what I can.

    Finely chop an onion.
    Mix that with the quorn mince and some chopped herbs.
    Season with salt and pepper.
    Beat an egg and add a little at a time to the quorn mixture mixing it in.

    When the mix sticks together, get a small amount in your hands and form into a ball.
    Put into the fridge to chill until needed.

    Put a tomato sauce/passata mix into a pan and add the meatballs and cook through.

    I've not tried this with Quorn, so can't really comment on how well it will stick together in a ball shape. :confused:

    There's a recipe for slimming world meatballs posted by Fiesty Fairy here that uses quorn and another one here posted by consultant1 who is a slimming world consultant that uses meat of your choice so I imagine you could substitute with quorn.

    A quick question; does anybody know if it's possible to make meatball style things out of Quorn mince or TVP please? Any ideas or recipes? Would be very grateful!

    Thank you!

    I cheat and buy the Quorn ready made swedish meatballs as I could never get them to stick with egg/breadcrumbs even tried sweet potato mashed up but they just fell apart. Would love to know if anyone has done it successfully

    But yes you can buy Quorn Meatballs ready made. Surely a veggie burger recipe but rolled into ball would work?
    One day I might be more organised...........:confused:

    also asda do a meat free meatball which are loads better than quorn and much cheaper
  • jj171
    I use Sosmix for meat free meat balls.

    Sosmix is a dry sausage mix - just add water - then its just like sausage meat. You can add spices, tomato paste and so on. Its great -very versatile. May sound a bit weird - but its really rather yummy.

    It also makes good sausage pie and caserole.

    How do I make quorn meatballs?
    I'm vegetarian but the rest of the family aren't. My son loves meatballs (as would I) and wondered how to make quorn ones. I usually cook the minced quorn from frozen so don't know whether to defrost it first before making. Advice appreciated.

    I've never tried it, but I'd defrost it first, then use an egg to bind it.

    You can buy Swedish style quorn meatballs sometimes in the supermarkets, I've bought them from tesco b4, if you don't have any luck making them.
