What you'll need
For the haggis bon bons (makes 18-20 bon bons)
400g Simon Howie gluten free haggis
6 slices Genius gluten free bread, crusts removed
1 large egg, beaten
1 heaped tablespoon gluten free plain flour
100ml vegetable oil
For the pitta pockets
4 Genius gluten free pitta breads, cut in half widthways before toasting
2 medium courgettes, cut into ribbons lengthways using a veg peeler
1 carrot, grated or cut into match sticks
Handful fresh pomegranate seeds
3 tablespoons natural yoghurt
1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce
Squeeze of lemon juice
Putting it all together
1. Use a food processor with blade attachment to make breadcrumbs from the gluten free slices
of bread, crusts removed.
2. Remove the haggis from its bag and divide into small pieces (approx. 1.5cm diameter or 20g if
you have digital scales) then roll into firm balls.
3. Lay out three bowls: one with flour, one with the egg beaten with a splash of milk and one
with the breadcrumbs. Coat the haggis balls in flour, dip into the egg to coat, then finally roll
in the breadcrumbs.
4. Chill in the fridge for at least 15 minutes before cooking.
5. Meanwhile prepare vegetables: cut thin ribbons from the courgettes with a veg peeler then
add a good squeeze of lemon juice and place to one side until ready to use. Grate or chop
the carrot into matchsticks. Finally mix together the yoghurt with the sweet chilli sauce.
6. Once chilled for 15 minutes or more deep-fry the bon bons in vegetable oil for 3 minutes,
alternatively shallow fry them until golden brown on all sides then drain on kitchen paper.
7. Serve the bon bons stuffed into toasted pitta pockets with the lemony courgettes, carrot,
pomegranate seeds and dressing.
