Vegetable Croquettes  Veg    HT   MC    60mins

Serves 4     Hot   Vegetarian   Vegetables  Nuts    Main Course      



1 tbsp Vegetable Oil

2 Onions, very finely chopped

6 Sticks of Celery, very finely chopped

2 Carrots, grated

175g/6oz Mushrooms, very finely chopped

1 tbsp smooth Peanut Butter

75g/3oz Unsalted Peanuts, very finely chopped/ground

75g/3oz Fresh Breadcrumbs

1 teasp Dried Mixed Herbs

Salt and Pepper

2 Eggs, beaten

75g/3oz Dried Breadcrumbs

Oil for deep frying




1. It is important to chop all the ingredients very finely so the croquettes hold together in cooking. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onions and celery and fry gently for 5 minutes until soft but not browned.


2. Add the mushrooms and carrots and cook for a further 5 minutes, stirring.


3. Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter until well combined. Add the peanuts, breadcrumbs, herbs, salt and pepper and mix well. Add enough beaten egg to bind. Cool.


4. Pour the remaining beaten egg into a shallow bowl and place the dried breadcrumbs on a plate and have a baking tray lightly dusted with flour.


5. Divide the croquette mixture into 16 and with floured hands, form the first portion into a small sausage-like shape. Then dip in the egg, roll in the breadcrumbs to thoroughly coat and place on the floured baking tray - as in a conveyor system.


6. Repeat the process until all 16 croquettes have been completed. Refrigerate the croquettes while you heat the deep fat fryer to 180C, 350F and heat the oven to very low.


7. Deep fry the croquettes in batches, without overcrowding the fryer, for about 3 minutes until golden. Drain on kitchen paper and keep warm in the oven whilst you cook the rest. Serve as soon as possible.
