SCALLOPS, BACON, PEA PUREE
By Gaz Oakley
I recently discovered Gaz on Youtube and immediately fell in love with his recipes (and beard). He effortlessly prepares mouthwatering vegan meals, topped with professional plating techniques. I knew I had to try a recipe soon and decided on a starter he made recently. I just doubled the recipe and made it into a main dish. Best choice ever!
Like any other person trying a new recipe, I ended up replacing some ingredients simply because I had the substitutes at home. Following are the items I replaced :
You can find his recipe here 🙂
In all honesty, I don’t think these replaced items changed much of the actual flavor. Well, it was SUPER DELICIOUS after all. When I fished out the poached mushroom stalks, I squished them and they felt like real seafood. It was mind boggling. I was so confused! But they tasted really amazing.
- Great texture
- Very flavourful
- Well combined flavours
- Perfect for classy at home meals
The only difficulty I faced was the bacon. My first batch was burnt within 7 minutes. For my next attempt, I added more soy sauce and a tablespoon water to make the sauce runny. Then, I kept a close eye on my second batch and they came out perfect. Mind you, this part is quite time consuming especially when you’re doing it for the first time. They make a great movie snack though. 🙂
When can this dish be made?
When you shower yourself some love.
When you can set aside 1-1.5 hours.
Was it worth the time?
Would I make it again?
Can’t wait to try another one of his recipes soon!
I’ve linked the recipe and his channel above.
Until next time, keep cooking with love!
