I'm sure this will have come up before but I don't know how to search these threads. Does anyone know a recipe for veggie haggis?
I've soaked a some different types of beans (kidney, canelloni etc) in the expectation that they will come in handy but after that I haven't got any ideas other than frying some onions and garlic, putting in some spices (coriander, nutmeg) and sticking in the food processor.
Any thoughts or direction to a previous thread would be appreciated.

I've eaten plenty veggie haggis but I've never made one so I don't know if this will be any good.

I have a very kind veggie friend who is making this one for our Burns Night party. He is doubling the quantities for us!

waitrose sell the mcsweens one which is nice.
when i make my own i sinmply put carrots, turnip, mushrooms in a blender, blitz, add lentils and kidney beans, blitz slightly so you don't mush the beans up too much. mix in oatmeal and spices (cumin, garam marsala etc) bake in oven
basically i read the back of the mcsweens package, ommitted the nuts and made it up as i went along
if you googled for the mcsweens website i'm sure it would list the ingredients on there.

Thanks for all these and sorry for not acknowledging them before. I shall pick elements form all these the next time I have a go.
I had to make it up myself on the day as I had less time than I thought . It turned out ok but under-seasoned even though I had put in plenty of herbs and spices.
One tip - I mashed the beans gently rather than blitzing them which seemed to give a good texture.
