‘Ave a bit o’ ‘otpot, luv

I made hotpot this week! I was mainly following the vegetarian hotpot recipe in Hairy Dieters Go Veggie, but owing to the trifling circumstance that I was unable to find any vegetarian black pudding, I had to get 250g of real black pud from the local butcher. This was not a hardship XD

I also used carrot instead of swede (I dislike carrots less), but otherwise I followed the recipe pretty closely. I was a little confused by the inclusion of an apple in the ingredients list, but it added a pleasantly sweet je ne sais quoi to the dish. I didn’t even have to peel it (doing so would have lost valuable nutrients anyway) as it all melded imperceptibly into the sauce.

This dish was also something of a trial run for the largest of the casserole dishes from my late grandmother’s kitchen — yes, it took me this long to get around to using them! The good news is, it went swimmingly 🙂 Definitely something to keep in mind for the future ^^
