Today we’re taking on a real classic. But first we put a thick knitted sweater on him, a coat, a pair of gloves and a hat. Because it’s cold outside in winter. Especially when you wear your feet out standing for hours at a winter market with some mulled wine in your hand. But it’s better to stay at home this year anyway. That’s why we bring the winter market to your home. And we do that with a really nice combination. We bring you a wintry currywurst with mulled wine sauce. And because that’s not fancy enough, we serve it with a few fries and speculoos mayo. Ooh la. Of course, everything is 100% vegan. #veganfortheplanet
For the currywurst sauce with mulled wine you need not only tomato paste but also mulled wine, of course. It provides the winter spice aromas, but also balanced sweetness and acidity. A whole apple makes sure of that as well. But on top of that you don’t need a lot more ingredients. Some onion, curry powder, sugar and paprika powder. That’s it. No wonder, the spices are already in the mulled wine.
For the speculoos mayonnaise we mix, who would have thought, spiced speculoos with vegan mayo. To do this, we grind the speculoos into a fine powder. This can be done either with electrical assistance of a food processor or by hand in a mortar. If you have neither nor, you can also put the biscuits in a freezer bag or something similar and then tackle it with a rolling pin. If the speculoos makes the mayo too thick for you, you can dilute it afterwards with a few drops of water.
