Fish and Chips vegan

Vegan Fish and Chips

Vegan Fish and Chips is one of the three recipes proposed by chef Francesco Basco during the show cooking of the "N&B in Cucina" project dedicated to Hemp-Fu.

Ingredients :

  • 1 block of Hemp-Fu
  • 1 large sheet of Nori seaweed
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 50 g of flour 0
  • 50 g cornmeal
  • Pinch of salt
  • 75ml of beer
  • 75 ml of carbonated water
  • About 1 liter of sunflower oil
  • 4-5 medium potatoes
  • Flour 0 (to sprinkle the potatoes)
  • Sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 4-5 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil


  1. First prepare the potatoes by washing them and cutting them into the desired shape. If you prefer, also leave the peel.
  2. Next, place the potatoes in a large pot covered with water. Add a pinch of salt, then bring them to medium heat. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes then drain. Boiling the potatoes helps keep them soft inside.
  3. Arrange the potatoes in a non-stick pan, sprinkle with extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper, flour and thyme sprigs, then bake for around 25-30 minutes, until golden and crispy. If you prefer, fry the chips instead of cooking them in the oven.
  4. Now prepare the "fish" (the Hemp-Fu). Pour the sunflower oil into a saucepan or fryer. If using a saucepan, fill it only halfway to prevent it from overflowing when steeping the Hemp-Fu. Cut the block of Hemp-Fu into rectangles or fillets. Using scissors, cut the Nori sheet into pieces the same size as the Hemp-Fu fillets. Place the Nori seaweed on the Hemp-Fu and brush one side with lemon juice to make it stick.
  5. Then prepare the beer batter: combine the dry ingredients in a bowl, then pour in the beer and water. Mix until a thick batter is formed. Submerge the Hemp-Fu and wait for it to turn golden, then drain.
  6. Plated up with fries and fried fish-and-chips-style Hemp-Fu.
