One of the best places to eat vegetarian haggis samosa in my opinion has to be the Baked Potato in Edinburgh. Another modern twist on the haggis is a dish called the ‘Flying Scotsman’ chicken stuffed with haggis. Haggis features quite a lot now in Scottish fast food. There is haggis burger, a patty of fried haggis served on a bun, haggis fritters, haggis pasties, haggis pies topped with a swirly mash, haggis savoury crepes, haggis wrapped in tortilla, haggis nachos, haggis lasagne, haggis macaroni cheese, haggis crisps and much much more. I’ve even created some with my own twist, mushroom haggis pakoras, haggis pakora bites, and haggis tikkia to name a few
But I no longer live in Scotland, yet I still reminesce of my time their with great fondness. So I am pleased that I am able to make vegan haggis from scratch at some made mostly with various pulses, oats and vegetables. There are so many vegetarian and vegan haggis recipes on the world wide web, however the recipe I made was adapted from Hendersons. If anyone should be making a good version of vegetarian Haggis, it has to be Hendersons Bistro and Restaurant, a Scottish institution.These days there many versions of vegan and vegetarian haggis on blogosphere, but I still use Hendersons as a base and spice it up a little. It is this very haggis recipe that I stuffed into my homemade vegan Haggis Samosa's. I actually made these last year, when I wrote about an Alternative Scottish Fusion Burns Supper, but did not get round to showcasing it. Enjoy.
