I’ve been wanting to make vegan fish and chips for quite a while now. As you might know I love making healthier and vegetarian versions of fast food, like my breakfast pizza or sweet potato burger.
When you think of fast food you probably think of ‘unhealthy’ and ‘meat/fish’, but I’m proving you that you can eat healthy and vegetarian or even vegan while enjoying your favorite cheat meal!
This time I made a vegan version of Fish and Chips. This typical British street-food is normally made with deep fried fish and potato chips, but my version is a lot healthier and 100% vegan.
I got the idea to make vegan fish and chips when I saw that my supermarket was now selling vegan fish burgers from SoFine. It was only a small step from vegan fish burger to vegan fish and chips! No deep frying is necessary for this healthified version and I replaced the regular potatoes with sweet potato fries to make it a tad more healthy and way more colorful.
After creating my portobello-asparagus burger with their vegan asparagus burgers, SoFine asked me if I could also make a recipe with their vegan fish burgers. I already had the idea to make a vegan fish and chips recipe, so of course I said yes! Below you’ll find the recipe for 2 portions of vegan fish and chips.
1 package of SoFine fish burgers
4 sweet potatoes
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
2 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon dried coriander (cilantro)
Clean the sweet potatoes and cut into fries (no need to remove the skin). Warm some olive oil in a skillet and add the sweet potato fries. Sprinkle with the smoked paprika and fry them for about 8 minutes (stir regularly). Meanwhile cut the fish burger in pieces and fry them in some olive oil for a few minutes (about 4) on each side.
Squeeze the garlic and mix with the soy yogurt and dried coriander for a vegan dip sauce.
Serve the fish nuggets with the sweet potato fries and dip sauce. Sprinkle with sea salt and lemon juice.
Enjoy your healthier and vegan version of Fish and Chips!
