Homemade Vegetarian Haggis Recipe

Burn's Night is here and in my house that means an excuse for a special dinner.  I love punctuating the year by recognising all the 'special' days.  It gives me a bit of inspiration to cook something different and have a bit of themed fun with the family.

So I have made homemade vegetarian haggis using an adaption of the Vegetarian Society's recipe from 2001 using lots of veggies, lentils, pulses and nuts to make a very delicious haggis without a single sheep's stomach in sight!!  (It is all ready in the loaf tin to be cooked for tonight's dinner, so I've used photos from last year's haggis to illustrate this recipe.)

Serve with tatties and neeps!!  We use Morrison's mashed carrot, swede and potato and then add some green veg like cabbage to the plate!  Top with gravy for a delicious, warming, healthy meal.  Here is last year's Burn's Night dinner!

  1. I have to admit that your home made haggis looked a lot better than the bought variety that we had for dinner. Dad had indigestion all afternoon so I think, in future, I will take a leaf out of your book and make my own. Your dinner looks divine.

  2. I made this veggie Haggis for the 3rd time this year for a Burns Night supper for my lot. It all gets eaten but has a mixed reaction, although my partner (who is Scottish) thinks it's great if lacking in black pepper! Next year I must remember to add some :D
