The original recipe comes from Daily Fix.
Vegetarian Scotch Eggs (serves 4)
- 6 large eggs
- 25 ml olive oil
- 2 spring onions, finely chopped
- 1 clove of garlic, chopped
- 2-3 courgettes, grated
- 400 gr canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 tsp garam masala
- 100 gr flour
- 150 gr white breadcrumbs
- sunflower oil, for deep frying
Boil 4 eggs for 8 minutes. Remove from the pan and put under cold water. Once cooled, peel and pat dry. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and add the spring onions, garlic, courgettes and cook for a few minutes. Put the mixture into a food processor with the chickpeas and garam masala and blend. Wrap the mixture around the cooked eggs. Make sure you put some flour on your hands, but this will be very messy. Beat the remaining eggs. Dip the covered eggs into flour, then into the beaten egg and then into the breadcrumbs. Refrigerate the covered eggs for 10-15 minutes. Deep fry them until golden.
We served them with a potato-avocado salad with cucumber.
I blogged 3 new Ostara recipes this year, which can all be found, under the tag. I am not sure if I can keep this up for Beltane, but we will see ;) Beltane is all about red fruits, honey and edible flowers. I guess there will be some baking ;)
