Ingredients
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Sauté garlic with onion in a little oil until the vegetable is soft, adding the garam masala, soy/tamari and season.
  2. Add the brown lentils and carrot and simmer on a low heat until the lentils are soft, stirring to prevent the mixture sticking. If the mixture starts to dry out too much, add a small amount of vegetable stock or water.
  3. Add mushrooms and allow to soften. Add kidney beans with vegan spread and stir. Heat through.
  4. Add rinsed drained oatmeal to the mixture and combine. The oatmeal should retain its texture to give body to the haggis.
  5. Blend well into the mix and cook through for about 10-15 minutes.
  6. Serve with clapshot - mashed potato and neeps (turnips).
Recipe Notes

"This is a recipe that my Grandmother Janet first made on her East Lothian farm in the 1960's. She had a passion for organic, local, vegetarian and vegan food and took a keen interest in early exponents of healthy eating." Barrie Henderson. https://www.hendersonsofedinburgh.co.uk

Instructions
  1. Prepare vegetables by washing and peeling as appropriate.
  2. Slice vegetables into slivers – the longer the cooking time, the thinner the cuts e.g. root vegetables such as carrots must be sliced very thinly.
  3. Heat oil and stir fry vegetables over a medium high heat to cook quickly and retain their colour and texture – a wok is good for this.
  4. Set veg to one side and keep warm.
  5. Add another drizzle of rapeseed oil, with the knob of butter to the hot pan and pour in beaten eggs combined with seasoning and cream.
  6. Move in pan until it starts to set then reduce to a medium heat and allow to cook without further stirring - about 5minutes.
  7. When fully set and golden underneath slip onto a serving plate, add vegetables and flip over edge of omelette.
  8. Serve immediately on warmed plates with real bread.
Recipe Notes

Shop local & seasonal for fresh vegetables for a tastier, environmental and more economical meal.
