Just 3 of the easiest meat-free meals to have on rotation for when you just... can't.

Thanks to our brand partner, Quorn

I’m an EXCEPTIONALLY good cook (if I do say so myself).

I can make delicious meals out of the most random ingredients, and if you tell me you don’t like a vegetable, I will change your mind with my seasoning wizardry.

But I’m also an exceptionally LAZY cook. 

I really, really can’t be bothered 98 per cent of the time, and whenever I see someone on TikTok say, “let me show you this quick and easy lunch I always make”, before pulling out a chopping board, I roll my eyes and quickly scroll on past. 


Because when it comes to cooking and food prep, my level of laziness doesn’t involve a chopping board.  

I’m not just lazy with food; I’m also vegetarian. Which means I can’t just buy a packet salad and a chook before calling it a day. Finally, on top of being lazy, I’m quite busy. And I know many people say that when they’re, in fact… not. But yes, I often get home late after my family has eaten something meaty OR I only have a moment for lunch.

This is why Quorn Ready Meals are essential to have on standby. 😉

See where I’m going with this? Just a huge fan of having a full freezer at all times. 

Now Quorn has a whole heap of meat-free options available in the freezer section at your local Woolies, but today, I’m taking you through my top picks because I’m sure many of you can at least relate to the busy side of my meal-prep hurdles.

Butter Chicken Style and Rice, $9.

I lived in Sydney's Inner West for years, and there was this outstanding Indian home diner that did the yummiest, creamiest butter chicken. 

As a questionable vegetarian, I would go in and ask for them to ladle some of the sauce on some rice for me and then mop it up with a garlic naan. Yummy. 

Butter chicken sauce is one of the tastiest dishes meat-free people miss out on, so you can bet your tooshie that I FROTHED on the flavour of the Quorn Butter Chicken Style and Rice. It tastes super similar to the real thing?! So a great option for us vegos, or for those wanting to eat less meat. 

It comes with fluffy rice and takes just minutes to heat up and prepare for your belly.

Pop it in a bowl with some fresh coriander to pretend you’ve got your life sorted… or just realistically gobble it down straight from the pack.

Thai Style Green Curry and Rice, $9.

Another yummy curry, this one gives the green option at my fave Newtown establishment a run for its money. With the perfect amount of spice and deliciously creamy coconut goodness, you’ll feel like you’re eating a fresh takeaway, not a $9 dish you fished out of the freezer. 

Made with vegetarian Quorn pieces, cooked in a green Thai sauce, flavoured with lemongrass, ginger, chilli and kaffir lime. Served with a side of jasmine rice and greens, it’s a good source of protein and fibre!

Spaghetti Bolognese, $9.

It’s been a LONG time since I ate meaty spag bol. And when I say a long time, I’m not joking. About 22 years. 

But from what I can remember, this Quorn version is unbelievably similar?! And I say unbelievably because I genuinely don’t understand how they do it! 

I remember when I first started eating more vego, the meat-free options were bleak, super tasteless and super weird textures. Just like me (some might say), they’ve come so far, and now we have this delicious dish that tastes like the real thing, minus the meat. 


It’s a great source of protein, made with vegetarian Quorn Mince, cooked in a rich tomato sauce, and served with durum wheat spaghetti. 

So there you have it, three amazingly delicious and ACTUALLY easy (not TikTok easy) ready meals to try the next time you want something fast, tasty, and affordable. 

Because things come up, life is busy, and sometimes you just… can’t.

You can’t be bothered thinking about what to cook, you can’t be bothered going to the shops, and you certainly can’t be bothered actually preparing the meal. Having ready meals that are easy to access and taste great will make future you incredibly happy, trust me. 

I know you’re probably wondering, how the devil do you prepare such a glorious feast?! Well, it’s pretty tough. 

  1. First, you have to get up (I know, I’m sorry) and head to the freezer. 

  2. Pull out whatever Quorn Ready Meal strikes your fancy. 

  3. Grab a knife and poke some holes into the plastic covering. 

  4. Heat in the microwave for 4.5 minutes. 

  5. Leave to stand for a minute.

  6. Serve and enjoy. 

And I know it’s hard to believe *cough Dad*, but even if you do eat meat, you might be surprised with how much you'll enjoy eating a meat-free meal. Despite silly stereotypes *cough Dad*, flavour isn’t spared and incorporating meat-free options into your diet has oodles of benefits.
