Mock goose recipe
the ‘goose’

1/2 lb butter beans, mashed
4 1/2 oz ground almonds or grated plain tofu (or half of each)
margarine
some yeast extract

the stuffing
4 oz wholemeal breadcrumbs
3 oz finely chopped and fried onion
1/2 oz margarine
sage
a spoonful of water
(or use a nice vegan stuffing mix instead!)
some sunflower oil

Mix the stuffing together and pile it into a baking dish. Mix the ‘goose’ ingredients together and spoon the mixture over the stuffing, pressing it down firmly and smoothing the surface. Bake in the oven at Gas mark 6 or 200 degrees for 30 minutes or until cooked and golden. Baste with hot sunflower oil a couple of times during baking. Carve into portions and serve hot, but also delicious cold.
