These bitesize party foods are delicious but also benefit from being able to be made in advance. I also serve the Quorn lettuce cups with fresh carrot, cucumber, chilli and tomatoes that guests can add to them

  • This meat-free party food recipe can be flavoured really easily to fit with your favourite flavours.
  • The Quorn Mince part of the lettuce wraps can be made in advance and served cold.
  • It’s a super healthy party food.

Quorn product range – meat-free party food planning

The range of products from Quorn are ever-growing and there are some essential buys that will soon be your favourites. Check out the chilled and frozen aisles in your local supermarket to take you right through Jubilee weekend. When you have a Jubilee party you need to make sure you check out the party food, deli and snacking ranges from Quorn.

My top choices for Quorn party food perfect for a jubilee party have to include;

Is a party a party without sausage rolls? These Quorn Sausage Rolls are served cold and a favourite for all guests. They look and taste like sausage rolls but are meat-free! These are found in the chilled section.

Something new I hadn’t tried before was the Sweet Chilli Bites and Southern-fried Poppers from Quorn. The sweet chilli bites were packed full of flavour and incredibly easy to eat. The poppers were easy to pop into your mouth so and proved a popular party food. These are found in the chilled section.

Quorn Takeaway Buffalo Wings are also a fab addition to a big buffet of party food. Great for children and easily dunked into different sauces and even served with a bit of salad. Plus as an extra benefit to a healthy lifestyle, they are vegan too.

Other Quorn products to try include Vegan Ham Slices, Vegan Chicken Free Slices, Vegan Pepperoni, Mini Cocktail Sausages, Picnic Eggs, Creamy Korma Bites and Garlic and Herb Bites.

Quorn is available in most supermarkets including Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda, Morrisons, Ocado and Iceland. Make sure to check the chilled and frozen sections as it’s often in both!

QUORN MINCE

Quorn Mince is a meat-free and high in protein vegetarian mince. It is a great replacement for beef or lamb mince and it is hugely adaptable for recipes. As well as this recipe you can also use Quorn Mince for bolognese, chilli and even burgers.

MINI SWEET PEPPERS

I love these mini sweet peppers. They are packed full of flavour and can be eaten cooked or uncooked.

RED ONIONS

The red onion adds gorgeous colour to the finished Quorn lettuce wraps but also a slightly sweet flavour too.

SPICES

To keep this recipe simple I used common spices that I hope most people have. Chilli flakes, ground cumin, ground coriander, smoked paprika. The mix is earthy with a bit of heat a perfect combination for the lettuce cups.

How to make – step by step

  • Peel and slice the red onion, along with the mini sweet peppers.
  • Place a frying pan on a low to medium heat. Add the olive oil along with the red onion and mini sweet peppers.
  • Soften gently and after a few minutes add in the Quorn Mince and stir.
  • Mix the spices together and mix in.
  • Cook and keep stirring for 5 minutes then remove from the heat.
  • Cut the bottom off the little gem lettuces and place all the leaves on a large serving plate.
  • Spoon the mix of Quorn, onion and peppers into the lettuce cups and you are ready to serve.

Serving suggestion – Slice the tomatoes, chilli, cucumber and carrot into small pieces and put on a plate to serve with the Quorn Mince lettuce cups. Slice the lime into wedges to drizzle over the lettuce cups.

Top Tips

As this recipe is delicious hot or cold it makes a perfect party and picnic food. It also means you can make it on the day you need it or even the day before and store it in the fridge.

Serving Suggestions

  • The Quorn lettuce wraps are best served for your summer parties. They make great tasty bite-size treats which your guests can help themselves to.
  • I serve the lettuce cups with a side dish of thinly sliced vegetables which you can add to the wraps for extra taste. My top picks have to be fresh chilli, tomatoes, cucumber, carrot, and fresh coriander.
  • Squeeze fresh lime over the Quorn lettuce cups just before you eat them. It’s a delicious flash of citrus that works so well with the spices.

Storing / Making ahead of time options

The best part of this recipe is you can make it ahead. I’ve made it on the day I needed but you could also do it the day before and keep it in the fridge. As it can be served hot or cold it’s brilliantly versatile.

If you have any leftovers pop them in the fridge in an airtight container and enjoy in the next 1-2 days.

    This is great. I have been thinking about using Quorn for a while as we are trying to cut down on meat. I thought it was really only good for a pasta sauce but this recipe will be spot on for a party I have coming up where we have vegan guests.
