Cauldron is a sponsor at this year’s British Street Food Awards. They are challenging bloggers in conjunction with Foodies100 to submit their favourite street food recipe using a Cauldron product of their choice. They sent me a voucher to take part.
I used to follow a vegetarian diet and during this period I regularly bought Cauldron smoked tofu. However as the boys haven’t been introduced to tofu, I didn’t think this was the time to see if they might like it. So instead I used the voucher to purchase Cauldron Lincolnshire vegetarian sausages. These are widely available at most major supermarkets.
I wanted to do something more inspiring than serving my sausages with onions in hot dog rolls. So for my street food, I cooked the sausages with fried rice and then served it in wraps folded in a cone shape. I also did a variant for son2 serving his sausages with noodles and broccoli, as he has recently decided he doesn’t like rice.
Ingredients (serves 2 adults and 2 children)
1 packet of 6 Cauldron Lincolnshire vegetarian sausages
280g long grain rice (80g per adult and 60g per child)
1 pint stock (made from 1 vegetarian stock cube and boiling water)
100g Chinese leaf
2 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
Tear the Chinese leaf into pieces.
Peel and push garlic through garlic press.
Cut the sausages into short pieces.
Fold the wraps into quarters, then shape into a cone.
Balance the wraps in mugs.
Add the olive oil to a wok and heat.
Add the garlic.
Add the rice and cook for a few minutes to coat with oil.
Gradually add the stock a few tablespoons at a time, stirring occasionally until absorbed.
After the first few tablespoons of stock, add the sausages.
Add the Chinese leaf when the rice is al dente, (after approx 20 mins).
Season with salt and pepper.
Allow the rice to soften to your preferred taste and ensure some of it goes crispy.
Spoon into the wraps.
Serve with barbecue sauce or your preferred relish and enjoy.
We enjoyed eating our street food in the garden. The boys gave it the thumbs up.
