Juicy ‘steaks’ and mash – the vegan version!

9 Sep

Of course this is NOT a recipe for traditional “steak n mash” as I do not eat meat at all 🙂 But as I cooked it, it really looked like beef, so you could try to fool the carnivores of the family with this dish. The mash is a celeriac and cauliflower mash – much healthier than your normal potato kind.

I got inspirered to do the “steaks” when I read a blog called Peas and Thank you. This blogger is blogging about everything for family life and everyday things, but mostly she posts a lot of great recipes. Not all vegan and not all that healthy, but all the recipes are more healthy than what a lot of people would normally eat. For her eggplant burger she used cheese – I didn’t put that in mine, because I’m trying to avoid dairy, but the dish turned out great anyway!

You will only need a total of 45-60 minutes including prepping and cooking to make this complete dinner for 4 people

You need:

For the steaks:

2 large eggplants – peeled and diced 1×1 cm

3 tablespoons soy sauce (Preferably low salt or Braggs)

2 tablespoons of worchestershire sauce

1 teaspoon of mustard

1 teaspoon tahini (Store bought or homemade: Grind sesame seeds in coffee grinder and blend with oil)

2-3 cloves of minced garlic

50 grams of breadcrumbs

Sunflower oil for frying

Fry the eggplant pieces in sunflower oil until soft – smash with the back of the spoon

Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Add the eggplant to the mixture and mix well – leave in the fridge for at least 30 min.

While you cool the eggplant mixture make a green salat and get started on your mash

For the mash:

1 celeriac

2 cauliflowers

Wash and clean the celeriac, cut of the skin and cut into small pieces – 1×1 cm. Boil for 5 min.

Cut the cauliflower into smaller pieces as well and at to the celeriac and simmer for 10 more minutes.

Blend the celeriac and cauliflower (Without any water) to a smooth pure/mash. The best blender to use is the VITA MIX.

Season with sea salt.

Make 5-6 patties of the eggplant mixture and fry in sunflower oil for 5 mins on each side

Is it meat? NO! its eggplant burgers - very tasty and much healthier!
