Ingredients

Roasted Pepper Hummus

  • 1 can Chickpeas
  • cup ½Cold Water
  • ½ Roasted Pepper roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp Tahini Sauce
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 1 Garlic Clove grated
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • tsp ½Salt

Instructions

  • Combine 100 ml of water with 1 tsp of liquid smoke and 1 tsp of Worchester sauce. This will be the liquid that we’re going to use to wet the gluten mixture once every other ingredient is combined. Set aside.
  • Finely chop the parsley with the garlic.
  • In a large bowl work all the ingredients together (apart from the water and, of course, the rice papers, that we are going to use later on as our sausages cases).
  • Pour as much water mixture as you need to achieve a “workable” dough (around 50 ml).
  • Divide the dough into 8 (roughly 50 grams each) and shape each piece into a sausage.
  • Run one sheet of rice paper at a time under cold water to soften it up, place on a chopping board and cut it in two with a sharp knife.
  • Wrap each sausage in the half rice paper sheet making sure to cut out the excess for a nicer finish (you will need to be extra careful working with these sheets as they are very sticky and they can easily get stuck together turning themselves into a BLOB - alternatively you can wrap the sausages in foil, and remove it before frying).
  • Set up a steamer over a pot of water and bring the water to a boil. Align the sausages in the steamer making sure they are not touching each other. Steam for 20 minutes.
  • Heat a pan with a little olive oil and fry the sausages for 5 minutes, until caramelised and uniform.
  • Serve hot with a side salad, roasted potatoes or vegs.
