Today is the feast of St Andrew, patron saint of Scotland. Here is a recipe for vegan haggis, not entirely my own, but having no note of the original recipe, I cannot credit its creator.
Haggis. Serves 2-3
50g Puy lentils
50g pearl barley
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 large carrot, finely chopped
75g portobello mushrooms, finely chopped
½ tsp ground allspice
½ tsp ground black or white pepper
90g pinhead oatmeal
½ tbsp marmite
1½ tbsp brown sauce or treacle
Sauté the onion and carrot in a little oil till soft. Add the mushrooms and the spices. If need be add a little more oil.
Add the barley and lentils. Add about 400ml hot water and yeast extract. Feel free to add a sprig of thyme.
Simmer until the mixture is very thick, adding more water if necessary.
Heat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4.
Stir in the oatmeal and brown sauce and tip into a greased loaf tin and cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for another 30.
Leave for five minutes, then turn out and serve.
