At the end of a busy day, slaving over a hot stove for hours isn’t always what you want to be doing. But this simple one pot is easy to make yet packed with comforting flavours and will definitely fill you up, particularly when served with crusty bread or a dollop of mashed potato.
What is liquid smoke?
Liquid smoke is a natural ingredient that’s made by condensing the smoke from burning wood.
It turns into a liquid, which can then be added to your vegan recipes to give them extra depth of flavour.
Liquid smoke has quite an intense flavour so you only need to use a little, but once you’ve tried it you’ll be adding it to all your favourite recipes.
Is Worcestershire sauce vegan?
No, traditional Worcestershire sauce isn’t vegan because it contains anchovies.
There are, however, vegan versions available to buy now that make the most of all the other flavours that makes Worcestershire sauce so unique (think vinegar, molasses, tamarind, onion, garlic and spices), but leaves out the fish.
Vegan Worcestershire sauce helps to give the casserole sauce a really rich flavour, but if you can’t get your hands on any you could substitute with soy sauce or a small dash of balsamic vinegar instead.
