Vegan recipes & Derbyshire Oatcakes…we may have mentioned this before, but the thing we love most about our Derbyshire Oatcakes is how versatile they are. Grill, Fry or Oven bake serve them with just about anything.
If you still need to be convinced that Derbyshire Oatcakes really do go with everything, keep on reading to see our top 10 vegan Derbyshire Oatcakes recipes, sweet and savoury!
Vegan bacon and cheese
We thought it was probably best to start with a classic combo, traditionally the Derbyshire Oatcake is enjoyed with bacon and cheese and with so many amazing vegan alternatives we recommend that you give it a try. Fry your favourite vegan bacon until cooked and place it on one side of the oatcake. Sprinkle vegan cheese over the top and roll the oatcake up, you can eat it just like that or place it under the grill to melt your cheese.
Houmous and sundried tomatoes
If you’re feeling fancy, why not try the Derbyshire Oatcake with a Mediterranean twist. Now we have to admit we are traditionalists and so we were sceptical at first but let us tell you that this houmous and sundried tomato recipe does not disappoint. Slather your oatcake in houmous, top with sundried tomatoes and some garlic granules if you fancy it and it’s as easy as that.
Dark chocolate and strawberries
Who says Derbyshire Oatcakes have to be savoury? Not us, that’s for sure. One of our favourite ways to eat one of our oatcakes is by slicing some sweet British strawberries and drizzling over our favourite dark chocolate. The sweetness of the strawberries counteracts the bitterness of the chocolate and you end up with a winning dessert.
Vegan yoghurt and tangy blueberry compote
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, this one’s for you. The topping includes creamy vegan yoghurt with a tangy blueberry compote running through it. Add your blueberries to the pan with a small amount of water and simmer until the berries burst. Increase the heat and cook until they look like jam, leave to cool and fold through your chosen yoghurt to create a ripple effect. Spread over your oatcake to either impress your friends and family at breakfast or enjoy all to yourself (we wouldn’t blame you).
The classic avocado, love them or hate them, the craze is still very much ongoing. Personally, we love nothing more than smashed avocado on toast so we thought why not try it on a Derbyshire Oatcake, and we weren’t disappointed. We like to use a ripe avocado, mash it up and add lemon juice, salt and pepper and a sprinkle of chilli flakes for a fiery kick.
Homemade raspberry, chia seed jam
Jam might seem like a strange choice but it’s actually a true classic when it comes to the Derbyshire Oatcake and it’s great for the less accomplished in the kitchen. Having said that this is a homemade jam but it really is easy to make. Simmer your frozen
berries with your chosen syrup until the berries can be easily mashed. Let the mixture cool, add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and some chia seeds and there you have it, homemade vegan jam! Spread over your oatcake, roll it up and eat.
Creamy mushrooms and tomatoes
If you prefer a savoury oatcake, our tomato and mushroom recipe makes the perfect brunch or dinner option. Simply fry the mushrooms and tomatoes until soft, add in some soya milk to make them nice and creamy and top with chives. Load them onto your oatcake, hot from the pan and enjoy.
Banana and peanut butter
Go bananas for this classic combo, you can’t go wrong with a Derbyshire Oatcake slathered in crunchy peanut butter and topped with sliced bananas. You could even try it with a drizzle of honey.
Coconut and passionfruit
Feeling something tropical? We’ve got you covered. This delicious coconut and passionfruit sauce really is a dreamy combination. Heat coconut milk and sugar in a pan and simmer until thickened. Use this to drizzle all over your oatcake and top with passion fruit seeds.
When we said our oatcakes were versatile, we really meant it. Why not try this curried chickpea recipe for a spicy kick. Simply heat some oil and fry your spices. We like to use cumin, chillies, garlic, cinnamon and paprika but you can use whatever you have in the cupboard. Add some onion and cook until soft and add in your chickpeas, ensure they’re well coated and spoon onto your oatcake and enjoy.
