barley stew and gingerbread men, I made Lancashire Burgers from Sam Stern's Eat Vegetarian. They were fantastic. Unlike most burgers I make, I shallow-fried these. They were crisp and golden and tasted as good as fried cheese.

cheesey pumpkin sausages.) Sam Stern suggested serving them in a bun with salad. I wasn't so organised. Nevertheless I highly recommend these for a quick weekend meal with chutney, roasted pumpkin and steamed brussells sprouts. They were also lovely cold the next day.

From Sam Stern's Eat Vegetarian
makes 6 burgers
110g fresh breadcrumbs (I used wholemeal that were a few days old)
175g lancashire cheese (the orange one), grated
1 onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp chickpea flour (besan)
1-2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 tsp English mustard (I used yellow mustard powder)
finely grated rind of half a lemon
seasoning, to taste
vegetable oil for frying
Mix together all ingredients (except vegetable oil). Sam Stern chilled his mixture but I didn't. The mixture looks like it isn't coming together enough but squish a handful together to make a patty. Repeat until you have 6 burgers. Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a heavy based non-stick frypan over medium-high heat. Fry burgers in oil for 4 minutes on each side until golden brown and crispy. Drain on kitchen towel and eat warm.
