89. Spanish Style Sausage

I was in two minds whether to blog about these or not. It was very hard to get a photo that didn’t look like…. Well…. Use your imagination.

Tastes more appetising than it looks….

However, these sausages taste a lot better than they look! And the skin makes them extra fun to make.

And, they contain both tempeh and seitan! That makes them vegan level 8 – right?!

Spanish Style Sausage recipe

Ingredients:

Dry-

2 x tsp onion granules
2 x tsp garlic granules
1 x tsp sage
1 x tsp thyme
3 x tsp smoked paprika
1 x tsp salt
1 x tsp cumin
1 x cup wheat gluten

Wet-

½ x tbsp. soya lecithin (optional but improves the texture)
½ x tbsp. olive oil
3 x tbsp. port
1 x jar tempeh (230 g)

 
Skin –

2 x rice paper sheets
1 ½ x tbsp. liquid aminos (or soya sauce)
1 x tsp smoked paprika
½ x tbsp. olive oil
2 x tbsp. boiling water

Method:

  • Put the dry ingredients in a food processor and give them a good mix.
  • Add the wet ingredients and whizz until a dough starts to form.
  • Take the dough out of the food processor and give it a good knead for 8 mins.
  • Roll out into 2 x sausage shaped and wrap up each one in Clingfilm.
  • Pop into a steamer and cook on a medium heat for 45 mins.
  • Take out of the steamer and allow to cool before removing the Clingfilm.
  • Make a marinade for the skin by mixing all of the ingredients apart from the rice paper.
  • One at a time, soak the rice paper sheets in the marinade until beginning to soften.
  • Roll up each sausage in one rice paper sheet.
  • Heat up a frying pan with a little oil and add the sausages. Fry on each side until browned.

I sliced up each sausage and added to a spicy tomato sauce to make a tasty Patatas Bravas <3

45. Tattie scones – vegan style!

It was mine and the hubby’s 1 year wedding anniversary the other weekend and we went to Dundee to celebrate.

1781911_10152141676153170_7642123597057265095_n 10312556_10152141675823170_134697543791875439_n       10299967_10152141676218170_311425405883888875_n 10325368_10152141676258170_1636076903572240354_n

The hotel did a fabulous job of catering for me, however I couldn’t help but feeling a little sad that I couldn’t have the tatty scones with my breakfast as they’re normally made with butter.

Sooooo, I whipped up a batch of vegan friendly ones once I got back home. And it would be rude of me not to share the tastiness!

(For those of you who are unfamiliar with the tattie scone, they are a Scottish delicacy and very delicious: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potato_scone).

 

Tattie scone recipe (makes 8 triangles):

Ingredients:

300 g potatoes (the more floury the variety the better)

25 g vegan friendly marg plus extra for frying (I used vitalite)

75 g white flour

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Method:

Boil the potatoes in the skins until soft all the way through.

Drain and leave until cook enough to handle. Peel the skins (the rats enjoyed these!)

Mash in a bowl with the marg. Add salt and pepper to taste.

When smooth stir in the flour until a dough is formed (you might need to use your hands towards the end).

Roll the dough out until about half a centimeter thick. If you’re cooking to impress you can neaten things up by placing a plate on top of the dough and cutting around the perimeter.

Add some marg to a frying pan and when melted and bubbling caaaaaaarefully add the raw tattie scone.

Fry both sides until golden brown.

Cut into triangles and serve with lots more marg, or as a side or even with jam if you fancy it.

Easy peasey and ridiculously delish!
