Haggis is not nearly as bad as everyone makes it out to be, its basically just a sheep burger. I guess you could make a Boca haggis patty if you really wanted to but the real stuff is better.

I've eaten it before *yum*

Vegan haggis is just as easy to make as vegan sausage, I tend to dislike any vegan or vegitarian sausage/burger/haggis as the flavour is not there unless you use enhancers. I have made both versions in the past and infact most massed produced true! versions of haggis do not use sheep stomach anymore as the synthetic versions are cheaper and easier to use, the same is true in sausage production. the problem for butchers trying to market such aproduct is the unwillingness of vegans to be seen to be supporting their local butcher. My daughter is a veggie and has tried some of my veggie/vegan products in the past and reckons they are far superior to the mass produced gloop available in the supermarkets but still will not set foot in a butchers shop, but she is a bit daft due to lack of protien.

It didn't mean the haggis WAS "vegan", it meant it was MADE with vegans, silly goose!

The famous MacWeens Company of Gairloch & Wester Ross has made "regular" haggis (a sheep's stomach stuffed with ground pork, herbs, oatmeal and sheep offal) for decades, and in 2008 introduced a version made from a vegan's stomach stuffed with ground vegan, herbs, oatmeal and vegan's offal, and call it (logically-enough) "Vegan Haggis" when the local County Dengold Prison executed their first vegan murderer. Since then, about 12 vegan inmates a month have been executed and donated their stomach & innards to the "cause"...

Well, veggie haggis has been around for a long time, and some of them are pretty tasty. Even McSween's make them.

I've not encountered any specifically vegan ones before, though I don't see why they shoudn't be marketable. I've sure met quite a few Scottish vegans.…

what do they use for the sheep stomache?

you know i'm as stumped as you. and i've never had the munchies bad enough to want haggis.

question is, i can't believe that there is any kind of demand for haggis except maybe on the top of the tallest mountain in the scottish highlands.

The haggis is a ceremonial dish for the Scots. It is how they toast their poet laureate, Robert Burns so you see the importance goes beyond the belly of a sheep, some oats and pepper. I am proud to be part of a culture whose identity is built around a poet and tossing telephone poles.

The only trouble is there stacked to the hilt with MSG which they usally try and hide under some other name like
Monosodium glutamate
Monopotassium glutamate
Glutamic Acid
Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (HVP)
Hydrolyzed Plant Protein (HPP)
Autolyzed Plant Protein
Sodium Caseinate
Calcium Caseinate
Textured Protein
Yeast Extract
Yeast food or nutrient

A Rose by any other name stills smells the same

Lol - vegan haggis!!!!???

Jesus no.

Real haggis is a different matter though ((((toker))))!



Vegans rule!!!

I agree. Vegan Haggis seems to be an oxymoron.

However, I think it is sexy when you say it.

Wouldn't haggis made from vegans be stringy and tough?I'll stick with original.It's mostly oatmeal and sheep sausage.

Although I've never tried it, I know that vegetarian haggis has been around for years.

Reciting "Ode to a Haggis" over a platter of Quorn just doesn't cut it.

Sacrilege. It reminds me of a vegan cannibal I once met. He'd only eat Swedes.

How the eff do you make Vegan Haggis?! LOL xD


Maybe they use the lining from a diaper instead of a sheep stomach...probably taste just as nice. Bleh.

Oh GOd I think I will have to go to church , how evil

yes to all questions

Maybe they use what's IN the stomach
instead if the stomach itself? xp..
