  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).

We have bundles labelled smoked haddock, hot smoked mackerel, fish pie mix and other delicacies all ready to pull out when peckish. A wee bit forward thinking is gold dust in menu planning.
