Danish vegan “smørrebrød”

Well, we admit this might not be that interesting to non- danes, but it is really traditional to have smørrebrød in Denmark, and vegan style quite tasty too 🙂

Usually smørrebrød is a lunch thing, it’s cold and eaten with a beer and a “snaps”, a traditional Danish brandy served ice cold and in Line’s oppinion tastes quite nasty 😉

We’ve added a picture of plenty of different smørrebrød here, and we’ll post the recipes continuosly… How come there’s never enough time in a day to do everything you want? 🙂

What you’ll need:

Two slices of rye bread pr. person (it’s rugbrød in Danish and it’s all about getting it as dark and full of seeds as you can)

Vegan margarine

Salad and dill, parsley, cress, whatever you can think off to pimp up your smørrebrød

For “fish” filets:

half a can of Nutolene (I’m not sure if you can actually get this outside DK, but it’s pressed peanuts, which you can slice, has a very nice, but weak flavor, you can use tofu instead.)

plain flour and breadcrumbs for breading

quite a lot of oil for frying

plenty og vegan “remoulade” (another Danish hit, but I basically make it using finely chopped pickles, mustard, sugar and soycream – in DK you can buy it readymade, vegan aswell)

Dill and lemon slices

caviart (the vegan caviarstyle product you see here: http://www.cavi-art.com/ – in DK you can get it in Føtex)

Slice up the Nutolene about 0,5 cm thick, slice it the long way, so you don’t end up with round “fish”. Then slice each slice diagonally to get triangular shaped slices.In a wide bowl mix half a cup of flour with about 4 tblsp of water to make a thick, sticky batter. Put the breadcrumbs in a plate. Heat the oil in a pan, let the whole pan be greasy. Take each “fish” filet, turn it first in the sticky batter, then in the breadcrumbs and fry it untill it is golden brown and crispy.

Then butter a couple of ryebread slices with the margerine, put a salad leaf on each and serve the “fish” filets on top, with remoulade, dill, caviart and a lemonslice… Check out the picture 🙂
