Vegan Boil Up

Vegan boil up


I’ve never had any firm measures, just use what you have. Here’s what I love in boil up:

Potatoes, Kumara, Kamokamo or pumpkin

Enough vegetable stock to cover all of your vegetables

Liquid smoke

Lots of watercress (this gives it the peppery taste)

Salt to taste


1.5 cup flour and 1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 cup vegan butter

Plant milk



* Chop the vegetables into even chunks, I like mine nice and big. The watercress boils down small so I always overdo it and pack loads in.

* Then throw it all in the pot and boil away. Add the liquid smoke in small amounts until you’re happy with the taste.

* Simmer on a low heat for at least two hours, and when you’re about ready to eat, pop your doughboys in for the last 15-20 minutes. The taste deepens the next day, so I always make enough for seconds and thirds!

* Doughboys: Mix dry ingredients then rub in the butter until it’s crumbly.

* Pour in just enough plant milk to mix the ingredients together. For light, fluffy doughboys, don’t overmix them.

* Make into balls and pop into the pot about 15mins before serving.
