Mock Duck Pancakes

Mock Duck Pancakes

This is a brilliant (and fast) healthy alternative to the traditional recipe – and much kinder to ducks, of course. Because you assemble each wrap yourself and pass dishes around, it’s also a very communal-style meal – a great conversation starter!

Chinese pancakes or spring roll wrappers (eg Blue Dragon) are found in Oriental supermarkets and some supermarkets, eg Waitrose and Ocado.

Ingredients

Stir-fry:

  • 1 tbsp cooking oil (not olive)
  • 1 large red pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 jar seitan OR tin of vegetarian ‘duck’
  • 1 bag of fresh beansprouts
  • Accompaniments:
  • 1 small bunch radishes, cut into slices
  • 1 bunch spring onions, cut into approximately 7cm/3 inch slices and then into thin slivers lengthways
  • 4-8 soft tortilla wraps (preferably wholemeal) OR 1 pack of Chinese pancakes/spring roll wrappers – see above for stockists

Sauce: make this OR for speed use a ready-made dipping sauce, eg hoisin or black bean.

  • 4 tbsp shoyu or tamari soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice or cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp date or maple syrup
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp root ginger, grated
  • 1 large clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2-1 tsp dark miso, to taste (available from health stores) – or use black bean sauce if you can’t find miso.

Instructions

1. Prepare all vegetables for stir-fry, accompaniments and sauce. Place sliced spring onions and radishes in separate small bowls – they don’t need cooking.

2. Slice seitan or mock duck into very thin slices.

3. Make sauce. Place all sauce ingredients (except miso) in a small pan.

4. Heat gently until simmering, stirring continuously.

5. When sauce is thickened, add the miso to taste. Place in a small serving bowl and keep warm until rest of meal is ready.

6. Slice wraps into 2 or 4 pieces, depending on size (no need to do this if you have Chinese pancakes, as they are small).

7. Gently warm the wraps in oven or microwave and keep warm in a clean tea-towel or foil.

8. Heat a wok or large frying-pan until hot. Add oil, then stir-fry red pepper and seitan or mock duck until red pepper softened and seitan/mock duck browned – about 3 minutes.

9. Just before the end, add the beansprouts and warm through with rest of stir-fry. Place stir-fry in a serving bowl.

10. Put all bowls of food and wraps on the table. Each person takes a wrap and smears a little sauce on it. Add a few spring onions, radish slices and stir-fry mix to wrap.

11. Roll up and eat and repeat until you’re full!
