Vegetarian kroketten

If you’re following a strict vegetarian diet, or perhaps expecting a visit from vegetarian family or friends, you need no longer eliminate your favourite Dutch snacks from the menu. Indeed, this yummy vegetarian take on typical Dutch kroketten (deep fried meat in breadcrumbs) is almost indistinguishable from the real thing, and every bit as tasty!


1 tin of GIJS vegetarian mushroom stew
1 pack of breadcrumbs
2 eggs
Frying fat

First empty the can of vegetarian stew onto a plate and leave to stiffen for one or two hours in the fridge. Next sprinkle the breadcrumbs onto a separate plate and whisk the eggs, together with three tablespoons of water, in a separate bowl. Now spoon a few tablespoons of the vegetarian stew onto a clean plate and carefully fashion into sausage shapes, before gently rolling in breadcrumbs. Next dip the kroket into the egg mixture and roll in the breadcrumbs once more, until a solid, even coating forms. Repeat this process for every kroket. Finally, heat the oil in a deep fat fryer and fry 1 or 2 kroketten at a time, until golden brown. Drain the kroketten on kitchen paper and serve immediately in a white roll with lashings of Dutch mustard.
