Vegan Smashed Sprout Poppers with Spicy Miso Mayo


For the Smashed Sprout Poppers

  • 1 Tree or Bag Sprouts
  • 3 tbsp Preferred Milk
  • 5-6 tbsp Plain Flour
  • A Good Pinch Salt
  • 1 Bowl Breadcrumbs (You can easily make your own by whizzing up some toast in the blender and toasting to a warm brown under the grill)
  • 1 Good Glug Oil

For the Spicy Miso Mayo

  • 3 Dollops Vegan Mayo
  • 1 tsp Miso Paste
  • A Good Drizzle of your Favourite Hot Sauce


  • Pop your sprouts in a pan of boiling water to cook through- this should take roughly 8-10 minutes.
  • Whilst the sprouts cook, make your miso mayo. Simply mix your mayo, miso and hot sauce together in a small bowl or ramekin, adjusting the measurements to taste.
  • Strain your sprouts and leave to steam a little to dry.
  • Pour your sprouts out onto a chopping board.
  • Grab a glass and use it to gently smush each individual sprout.
  • In a small bowl, mix your dash of milk with your flour and pinch of salt until you have a gloupy mix, a little thicker than pancake batter. Place next to your bowl of breadcrumbs.
  • To crumb your smashed sprouts, firstly swirl in your batter, then transfer to the crumb bowl and toss to coat. Be warned, this can get a little messy! Place on a prepared baking tray and drizzle with a good glug of oil.
  • Place in the oven for 30-40 minutes, turning at halfway. Alternatively, fry until warm and golden brown in colour.
  • Pile high on a plate and serve warm with a ramekin of your spicy miso mayo.
