Himmel un Aed (Fried vegan bloodpudding with mashed potaoes topped with apples and onions)
Yes, you're right this is vegan bloodpudding and it's so delicious.
The idea of a vegan bloodpudding came to my mind, when I tasted the iron drops my daughter had to take after she spent a few weeks at the hospital.
Well they tasted like blood and were vegan and the idea was born.
Now a few month later I just had some vegan iron pills but that could not stop my to do a little experiment. The kind of blood pudding a wanted to create first was "Panhas", wich is traditionally made out of the broth you've got after cooking some sausages on slaughter day (Ok, this sounds really really weird on a vegan blog but hey this is an all vegan recipe of course.). Some of the sausages tend to burst and you've got lots of animalparts you won't like to use for something als so this is, when the meat jumps into the game. You at some blood and bind everything with some buckwheat flour and you've got panhas.
Well, unforunately I couldn't find whole and bleeding fake pigs at the supermarket so I
had to do a little bit of inventing and substitution to do and here is the recipe:
1 cup of firm tofu, mashed
1/2 cup of mashed cooked chickpeas
1/2 cup of mashed smoked tofu
1 1/2 cup of homemade vegetable stock, which should be heavy on leeks and onions and include some dried shitakes
1/2 cup of canola oil
1 big onion, chopped
2 tsp of hing
3 tbs of dark soysauce
2 tbs of vegetable stock powder
5 iron pills, grind them with a mortar
a good hand of chrused walnuts
3/4 cup of buckwheat flour
a pinch of salt
1. In a big pot, fry the onions with the oil, the hing and the walnuts and add the tofus and chickpeas.
2.Add the stock along with the shitakes and all other ingredients eccept of the buckwheat flour and grind them with a food processor.
3.Put everthing back and add the buckwheat flour.
4.Cook on medium a while contantly stiring until it thickens a lot.
5. Pour into an oiled mold of your choice and let it cool down inside of the fride for a few ours.
