Vegetarian Stovies

Follow our recipe for Vegetarian Stovies – a take on the Scottish classic using our Vegetarian Square Sausage!

All the taste of the old favourite, with none of the meat.

Prep time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 30-35

Serves: 4

ingredients

1 packet of Simon Howie Vegetarian Square Sausage

1 tablespoon vegetable oil (Or coconut oil)

2 medium white onions (Or 1 large onion, diced)

1 1/2 pounds potatoes (Washed and peeled)

500 ml vegetable stock

Salt (if needed)

Pepper (to taste)

Method

1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan and add the chopped onion, cooking on a low heat until soft.

2. While the onions are cooking, peel and chop the potatoes. Check back on the onions occasionally until they brown.

3. Add the potatoes, followed by the vegetable stock. The stock should cover approximately three quarters of the potatoes, so add more if necessary!

4. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover with a lid and simmer. Meanwhile, roughly chop the sausage slices.

5. After around 15-20 minutes, add the chopped square sausage to the pot and continue to simmer for another 10-15 minutes (depending on how thick-cut the potatoes are) until they are cooked through. Test if ready by inserting a knife into the centre of a potato until it starts to go through. The stovies should be thick, with no liquid left in the pan. Give a good stir and season to taste.

6. Serve immediately, or if you like a bit of bite to your stovies, transfer to an oven-proof dish and grill at 200°C for 5 minutes to form a crispy layer on top.
