Amazing purple spuds and baby root veg fresh from my dad’s garden!
I haven’t yet worked out the calorie difference between regular and veggie ‘sausage’ rolls … probably because I don’t actually want to know how many calories in either… But they do feel healthier and are certainly lower in fat and higher in fiber.
Several of my taste testers even preferred them to their porky counterparts when I brought both into work this morning which was a surprising bonus!
A bit of extra heat might work too here. I usually add 1 tbsp of tabasco to my standard sausage roll recipe. Sounds like a lot but it adds a very subtle spice to the end product
Makes approx 30 bite-size rolls
Thanks a million to Vimi and Rekha for the recipes, they went down a treat when I made them last weekend! I never knew how easy it was to make bhajis! I must experiment with other veg another time. I have to admit though, I left out the fresh coriander when making both recipes. It’s one of those things that some people, including myself, aren’t that keen on. I’ve left it in the ingredients list though, for those who do like coriander
I also deviated from Rekhas recipe and made what we christened “Paddy Bonda” - adding some chopped black pudding to the original recipe (thanks Greg for the suggestion). Definitely not authentic Indian, but it was delicious!! The last photo below is of the experiment
Makes about a dozen
Eventually I got around to uploading a selection of food photos from my recent trip to New Orleans!
I deliberately avoided the word “superfood” in the title of this recipe, as that word kinda irritates me. However, call it what you will, this salad is jam-packed with healthy ingredients. You’ll be positively glowing afterwards ;-)
The tuna is optional, it could just as easily be replaced with poached salmon, thinly sliced rare steak or simply left vegetarian. Leaving out the tuna, it’s only 300kcal per portion. Which will keep all those on 5:2 diets happy!
Thanks to Greg for kindly stopping eating mid-mouthful so I could get a photo!

If you prefer, you can just use minced beef, though the combination of pork and beef works best.
Thanks to Liz for passing on the recipe :)

Molly Malone would probably have tutted at the addition of cider to this recipe but, apart from that, it’s a pretty authentic coddle. Even the ingredients were bought on Moore St, you can’t get more Dublin than that!
