Vegan Haggis with Whisky Sauce

Vegan Haggis

When Robert Burns wrote “Address to a Haggis”, we doubt he had a vegan Haggis mind. If he were around today we can't guarantee that the "Address" or any further verse would have been penned, but we are quite sure he delivered some worthy light-hearted ditty in honour of this much in demand 21st-century dish. Of course, the dish is not complete without a delicious whisky cream sauce and this vegan version is the perfect dairy-free accompaniment to a hearty plate of vegan haggis.
