Quorn™ Vegan Mediterranean Socca Pizza

Quorn™ Vegan Mediterranean Socca Pizza

The other week Quorn™, invited me down to London to cook up some delicious new meat-free & vegan recipes with some fabulous other food bloggers (& Jessie Pavelka!!).

 

My favourite recipe that we cooked was the Vegan Mediterranean Socca (it’s like a healthy pizza and tastes incredible) and so here it is for you to re-create as well.

 

The base is like a thin and crispy pancake (made from chickpea or gram flour) and the toppings include pesto, cherry tomatoes and olives, in addition to vegan chicken style pieces. Chickpea flour is great source of protein and fibre as well as vitamin and minerals including folate, vitamin B6, iron, magnesium and potassium.

 

During my cooking trip I had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful Jemma from Celery & Cupcakes, Becca from Amuse Your Bouche and Emily from A Mummy Too. We chatted about food (obviously) and discussed the benefits of Quorn™* – it’s high in protein, low in calories (16g and 104 kcal per 100g for the vegan chicken style pieces) and super quick and easy to cook with too!

 

So, onto the recipe – do let me know if you give it a go too!

    All quorn products I’ve ever seen are not vegan as they contain egg white. I hear there has been some pressure on them to develop a vegan quorn product. Your recipe is described as vegan. Have I missed something?
