As you may know, we have a “Fysh&Chips” recipe in our cookbook, and what a recipe (see photo below)! We use a unique method for combining and flavouring two types of tofu, later fried up in a homemade beer batter, and served with chunky chips. This, we can assure you, makes it the best vegan fish&chips recipe ever.

Instructions
 

  • Place the slabs of extra-firm silken tofu on a plate lined with paper towels and let drain for a few minutes. Blot them with some more paper to remove as much moisture as possible.
  • Rinse and drain the good quality canned artichokes and place them in a food processor. Pulse 6 to 8 times until they are evenly broken up. Place in a large mixing bowl and set aside.

  • Rinse and drain the jackfruit. Remove the tough core from each chunk and reserve for another use. Break the chunks apart and remove the seeds. Take only the flaky part of the jackfruit. Coarsely chop the flaky part and add to the mixing bowl with the pulsed artichokes.

  • Preheat the oven to 190ºC/375ºF.
  • In a dry high-speed blender, add the wakame flakes, and blend until powder-like consistency.

  • In the empty food processor, add the drained and blotted extra-firm silken tofu slabs, panko breadcrumbs, powder-like wakame, unsweetened soy yoghurt, freshly squeezed lemon juice, freshly ground mustard seeds, cold-pressed rapeseed oil, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, potato starch, and tamari, and process until a chunky texture has been achieved. Make sure not to over blend. The texture should be chunky!

  • Scoop the contents of the food processor into the bowl with the artichokes and jackfruit, and using a sturdy silicone spatula, fold to combine until the mixture begins to hold together. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of the bowl and divide into 8-10 equal portions, about 3-inches in diameter and 1-inch thick.
