100g vegan bacon pieces

400g brussel sprouts

pinch of sage (dried or fresh)

salt & pepper to season



500g carrots (4-5 large carrots)

1 tlbs maple syrup

pinch of sage

pinch of rosemary

pinch of thyme

1. Wash and trim the stalks from the burssel sprouts. Making an X shape cut into the top of each brussle sprout, will reduce the cooking time.

2. Putting a pan on medium heat fry off the brussle sprouts until they are nice and charged on the outside and tender in the middle. Test using a folk. If needed add a dash of water and lid to steam for 2 minutes.

3. Add in the smoked vegan bacon, a pinch of salt and pepper, and a pinch of sage. Fry for another 3 minutes and transfer to a serving dish.

4. Optional extra to add a knob of vegan butter for a little richness.



1. Wash, peel and cut the carrots in half lengthways. 

2. Add these to a pot of simmering water for 5-8 minutes.

3. Test with a fork. When tender transfer these to a pan on medium-high heat.

4. Add in the herbs, maple, salt, and pepper for seasoning and fry for another 2 minutes.

5. When ready transfer these to a serving dish.


1. Peel the potatoes.

2. Chop into ‘roasties’ size.

3. Steam for 10-12 minutes.

4. Removed and dress with oil, salt & pepper, and any seasoning you like (dried herbs).

5. Remove the wellington and glaze with the maple syrup and spring the dried herbs and any seasonings you like over the top. And enjoy!



1kg  portabello mushrooms

400g closed cup mushrooms

1   heaped tsp dried mixed herbs

1   tbsp tomato paste

1/2  tbsp salt + 1/2 tbsp white pepper

4  cloves of garlic

3  tbsp of reduced salt soy

3  tbsp of sweet soy

1  tbsp cold pressed oil / frying oil

250g  oats


optional : You could use any mix of mushrooms. The portabello mushrooms have a really meat-like flavour to give that sausage taste. Mushrooms can be expensive in Ireland, I always use a mix to reduce the cost. These mushrooms can really handle a lot of flavor so don’t be afraid to add some spice or chili flakes


Prep it – 

Wash and roughly chop the larger mushrooms before they hit the blender. This means you can fit more in!  Blend all of the mushrooms until you have a mince-like texture. As there are a lot of mushrooms in this recipe you won’t fit them all in the blender in one go, I like leave some a little chunkier than others to give the sausage patties more texture.  Mince your garlic.

Now you’re ready to fry!

Fry it – 

Heat the oil in a frying pan, on high heat. You want to get some colour on the mushrooms and steam off the watery-juice that comes out.

When you’re happy all of the mushrooms are brown and softened add in your herbs, garlic, tomato paste, soy and sweet soy. Let this fry for 5-8 minutes.

Its time to add the oats, a couple of tablespoons at a time. This is the magic ingredient. This will give great texture and also help to dry up in mixture (in a good way).

Roll it –

When your happy you have enough oats added, taste. Anymore seasoning needed now is the time to add it in.

Then remove the mixture from the pan. I like to lay it ou on a chopping board / counter to cool. When its cool enough to handle, take about 3 tablespoons and place it onto plastic wrap / cling film. Fold on side over, pinch at each side and roll. You should have a rolled sausage shape. You can make these any size you like.

Freeze it – 

These are going in the freezer. I make a mixed batch of long and short sizes so I can easily take out enough for 2 or 4 people at a time. once frozen these will keep for 3 months+.


Any mix of mushrooms works with this recipe. You don’t have to make this volume but batch cooking this saves you more time in the long run.

This recipe doesn’t just work well for a ‘Beef’ wellington but also, one of my favorite way to enjoy these is to fry them up with grilled tomatoes, tofu-scramble and some fresh baked bread. An ultimate weekend breakfast feast is just not the same without these little beauties anymore.

We love bringing these camping. I take them out of the freezer and pack into a cooler (with ice) to enjoy by the campfire in a toasted bun….mmm. By the time the camp is set and fire is going they are defrosted and ready to savage!!!
