Sluttishly Vegetarian: Kedgeree

We've already brought you hangover kedgeree, and now here's the vegetarian version - suitable for the morning after a big night out, or simply as an easy dinner. Traditional kedgeree uses smoked fish, but this one uses vegetarian black pudding - worth tracking down online for an intensely rich, moreish taste. If not, use smoked tofu to get a similar hit. The smoky taste and curry spices give it a fantastic kick, whether you're starting your day with it or easing into the evening.

Vegetarian kedgeree (serves 2)
You will need:
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 200g risotto rice (like Arborio rice)
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 3 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 800ml vegetable stock
  • 150g vegetarian black pudding, cut into rounds and fried
  • 2 boiled eggs, chopped
  • Small handful of parsley or coriander, chopped
Make it!
  1. Heat a little oil in a large saucepan and gently fry the onion until soft. 
  2. Add the rice and spices, and stir for a minute until the spices release their aroma. Throw in the tomatoes and puree.
  3. Add a ladleful of stock and stir well until absorbed. Gradually add the rest of the stock, one ladleful at a time, until it's all absorbed and the rice is cooked.
  4. Add the vegetarian black pudding, boiled eggs and parsley and gently stir through to warm. Spoon into bowls and serve.


  1. I'm so sad that this isn't called vedgeree.

    1. Vedgeree? Or vegeree? They're both quite pleasing.

    2. It shan't be called anything else now. This is how food of the future is created, Sara.

    3. I once used quinoa instead of rice to make kedgeree, I called quedgeree. It didn't catch on.

  2. Vegetarian black pudding, yuk - the words 'black pudding' make me start to heave. And I hate tofu. Any other suggestions for a veggie ingredient for this? Mushrooms don't seem quite right. Cheese would be wrong. Lentils would make it like dahl.

    And any ideas for a veggie mulligatawny?

    1. Lentils (or mung beans) would make it into khichri, the Indian dish that inspired kedgeree, so you can't go too far wrong there. Otherwise, Sara has a great list of meat substitutes you can check out -

      As for mulligatawny, the Hairy Bikers' recipe is a good one, and it's veggie.
