Ok so this probably the most pretentious thing I have made. I was watching Saturday Morning Kitchen and some dude is pan frying a poor ducks breast to put in a salad. I’m like, SCREW THAT!! Let’s veganise this baby, for the animals, for your health and for the planet baby, yeah! See these ingredients! 🙂
2 large potatoes
1 vegetable stock cube
4 runner beans
2 tins of mock duck
Firstly you need to do the potato fondants because they take about 35 minutes. Peel two large potatoes and core out a large cylinder.
Fry each end for about 3 minutes each in a hot, oiled pan.
In the meantime make up a pint of vegetable stock and pour it in a baking tray. Now place the two potato cylinders into that tray and place in the oven for 25 minutes.
Now slice the plums into quarters and boil for 10 minutes, before draining and frying with a large tablespoon of golden syrup for another five minutes. Then leave it to cool because that syrup is HOT!
Get your nicest non-stick pan, put a dash of oil in it, turn up the heat.
Open and drain your mock duck. Place the biggest, chunkiest bits in the hot pan and cover in salt and black pepper.
Turn once after 5 minutes.
Chop the carrots and runner beans. Place in a pan and boil for about 4 minutes.
Plate everything up in a way that please you. I did it in the most pretentious way I could think of.
The bearded one asked for a non-pretentious version so I gave him this:
I’d never made potato fondants before so this was a good experiment for me. The whole dish was divine and I managed to get everything to just the right texture. A dish to impress for sure! 🙂
