Mock Duck Pancakes

Share something vegan (and delicious, duh!) with a non-vegan…tomatoweb

I made mock duck pancakes for a friend who is not veggie some time ago and he loved them and ate the lot! We are lucky enough to have a local Asian restaurant that cooks a fixed-price menu divided into Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Malaysian and Specialist sections. My friend has eaten the duck pancakes there but when he ate my faux duck ones he said they could stick theirs up their arse! Almost as high praise as when he said he’d had a really good shit after eating round at my house – I’m always happy to help!

  • Two tins of faux duck
  • ½ tsp five spice
  • 2 tbsp Hoisin sauce
  • A dash of sesame oil
  • ½ a cucumber
  • 1 bunch of spring onion
  • Readymade Chinese pancakes (look in freezer)

Drain the ‘duck’ and cut into strips the size of your little finger. Toss it in five spice then coat the duck with the hoisin sauce then roast in a medium oven until crispy (10-15 mins) in a baking tray greased with toasted sesame oil. While the duck is roasting, chop the cucumber and onions into two inch long chunks then thinly slice – thin as you can! Then briefly steam the pancakes (in a traditional bamboo steamer if you have one). Take the warmed pancakes and roast duck to the table with the shredded vegetables so that your guests can assemble their own crispy duck pancakes – good fun and tasty!

    Your friend tells it like it is. Any food that you can rustle together quickly and that tastes as good as it’s regular counterpart is a win. I went hunting in my freezer. I think I bought a bung freezer as mine doesn’t have Chinese pancakes in it. I am going to fire off a missive to the manufacturer. We antipodeans always miss out on the free offer! 😉
