Vegetarian & Gluten free Scotch Eggs

It’s been a lovely warm day, too hot for a heavy meal and we’re still on Lock-Down – so we had time to play in the kitchen…..

1 soft boiled Egg per person

100g or so of dried Mung Beans
3 Mushrooms
Juice of a Lime
Dried Dill
Dried Basil
4 Birds Eye Chillies
Salt & Pepper

Ingredients – For the crispy coating

50g or so of dried Rosecoco Beans
Stale (Gluten free – in our case) Bread


(1) Soak both the Rosecoco & Mung Beans over night in salted water separately.
(2) Boil both lots of Beans in separate pans for 30 minutes, drain and set aside.
(3) In a little Oil roast the boiled Rosecoco Bean until the pop onen and set aside to cool.
(4) In a food processor wuzz at the covering ingredients with enough oil to make a think Pate and set aside.
(5) In the washed and dried food processor wuzz the crispy coating ingredients into a Bread crumb texture and set aside.
(6) Per heat the oven to 180c.
(7) Stick the covering around each Egg by hand so that you have about a centimetre casing.

We served ours with a mixed home grown & foraged salad and Potato wedges. These might have been a bit of an experiment, but they were well worth it!
