Vegetarian & Gluten free Scotch Eggs

It’s been a lovely warm day, too hot for a heavy meal and we’re still on Lock-Down – so we had time to play in the kitchen…..

1 soft boiled Egg per person

100g or so of dried Mung Beans
3 Mushrooms
Juice of a Lime
Dried Dill
Dried Basil
4 Birds Eye Chillies
Salt & Pepper

Ingredients – For the crispy coating

50g or so of dried Rosecoco Beans
Stale (Gluten free – in our case) Bread


(1) Soak both the Rosecoco & Mung Beans over night in salted water separately.
(2) Boil both lots of Beans in separate pans for 30 minutes, drain and set aside.
(3) In a little Oil roast the boiled Rosecoco Bean until the pop onen and set aside to cool.
(4) In a food processor wuzz at the covering ingredients with enough oil to make a think Pate and set aside.
(5) In the washed and dried food processor wuzz the crispy coating ingredients into a Bread crumb texture and set aside.
(6) Per heat the oven to 180c.
(7) Stick the covering around each Egg by hand so that you have about a centimetre casing.

We served ours with a mixed home grown & foraged salad and Potato wedges. These might have been a bit of an experiment, but they were well worth it!

Really? This is a Government Employee?Dear Jody,
                 Firstly I thank you for your reply. Although I found is somewhat difficult to understand. I would expect a reasonably level of literacy from a Government Employee.
Please see below:-
Your message “ Hi Antony,
If they wasn't able to do that for you, you can download it off the website and if you put in the search bar uc50 and its the top one that you can download and complete. 
Kind Regards Jody “
I would prefer this to have been phrased:-
“ Hi Antony,
If our department or our sub-contractors were unable to assist you with this, you can download it from the website. By inserting “uc50” in the search bar you will find the 24 page full colour .pdf file. If you could possibly download and print this we will reimburse you for the cost involved, as this is clearly our mistake.
Kind Regards Jody “
I did not receive your form. Possibly because your system caused us to be homeless and living in a tent for 8 weeks? No postal service etc. I will however complete your form and walk a 3 mile round trip with a heart condition to drop it off at Job Centre Plus York. I'm sure it would be much more convenient for me to die on the way. 
However, with the assistance and in partnership with various charities we visited 10 Downing Street yesterday to deliver a petition against UC. We sincerely hope it forces change and makes your position as an employee more tenable and doesn't lead to the system you have to enforce killing too many more people.
As we only receive £430+ a month and the cartridges for the printer cost us £48 I think it only fair that you reimburse us. I can provide the WH Smiths receipt.
