Let's join him

for some foodie fun right now.

0:00:000:00:00

Whose kitchen are we going to today?

0:00:270:00:30

Hello, my name's Conor.

0:00:300:00:32

Welcome to my house.

Please come in.

0:00:320:00:35

This is my dad.

Hello.

Hi, Dad.

0:00:370:00:40

And this is our kitchen,

and today we're going to be making

0:00:400:00:44

vegetarian haggis, cos I love it!

0:00:440:00:47

Conor's dad has shown him a very

special way

0:00:470:00:50

to make vegetarian haggis.

0:00:500:00:52

Conor's family are Scottish,

and they live in Scotland.

0:00:520:00:56

Scotland is part of the UK,

along with England, Wales

0:00:560:00:59

and Northern Ireland.

0:00:590:01:02

Scotland's hills are good

for grazing animals, and the

0:01:020:01:06

weather is perfect for growing

lots of different types of food.

0:01:060:01:10

The winters there are cold,

so, many years ago, people would eat

0:01:100:01:14

lots of foods like porridge,

stews and soups to keep them warm.

0:01:140:01:19

Haggis is a famous Scottish food.

0:01:200:01:23

It's an unusual

type of savoury pudding.

0:01:230:01:25

On special occasions in Scotland,

bagpipes are played as the cooked

0:01:250:01:29

haggis is taken the table, where

it's eaten with neeps and tatties.

0:01:290:01:34

Connor has washed his hands, put

on his apron and is ready to cook.

0:01:370:01:42

I'm going to be making vegetarian

haggis with neeps and tatties,

0:01:420:01:46

for my friends.

0:01:460:01:48

And he's invited Cooper, Amy,

and Alonso to taste a

0:01:480:01:52

special ingredient before they come

round for a Scottish meal later.

0:01:520:01:57

What's that?

0:01:570:01:59

Um, a piece of grass maybe?

0:01:590:02:02

It's not grass!

0:02:020:02:04

It tastes quite plain.

0:02:040:02:07

I won't eat any more of it.

0:02:070:02:09

No, it's disgusting.

0:02:090:02:11

Ha-ha! It's fresh coriander.

0:02:110:02:13

I would like to try it if I had it

in a meal.

0:02:130:02:16

That's good, but not everyone

seems to like it.

0:02:160:02:19

Let's see if Conor can change

their minds, because coriander is

0:02:190:02:22

one of the ingredients

in his vegetarian haggis.

0:02:220:02:26

As well as coriander, you'll need

butter, mushrooms,

0:02:260:02:31

milk,

0:02:310:02:33

chopped hazelnuts, potatoes

0:02:330:02:36

ground nutmeg, stock powder,

0:02:360:02:40

a carrot, tinned kidney beans,

0:02:400:02:44

water, porridge oats,

0:02:440:02:47

black pepper, spring onions,

0:02:470:02:51

a neep - which is also known as a

swede - and some salt.

0:02:510:02:55

What's first, Conor?

What I'm going

0:02:550:02:57

to be doing is, I am going to be

mixing the stock with the water.

0:02:570:03:02

And then you would mix it.

0:03:020:03:04

Now, time to drain your kidney

beans...

0:03:060:03:10

and tip them onto a plate.

0:03:100:03:12

What's next?

And we're going to

be mashing the beans.

0:03:140:03:19

It is really fun, mashing the beans,

0:03:190:03:22

and I mean REALLY fun.

0:03:220:03:24

So now that's properly mashed,

0:03:250:03:28

what we need to do is pour the

kidney beans into the big bowl.

0:03:280:03:33

Now tear up the mushrooms...

0:03:330:03:35

It's very healthy to put in every

single part of the mushroom.

0:03:350:03:41

..and carefully grate a carrot.

0:03:410:03:44

So some people think that haggis

is a wee animal that

0:03:440:03:48

runs about the Highlands,

0:03:480:03:50

but you can tell it's not.

0:03:500:03:51

Ha-ha! You're quite right there,

Conor.

0:03:510:03:54

Make sure you collect all your

gratings with a fork or a spoon.

0:03:540:03:58

After you grate your carrot,

the carrot goes in the bowl.

0:03:580:04:03

Now add the chopped hazelnuts...

0:04:030:04:06

porridge oats...

0:04:060:04:09

ground nutmeg...

0:04:090:04:11

and some black pepper.

0:04:110:04:13

So, next, we're

going to chop up the spring onion,

0:04:150:04:18

but first what you need to do is...

0:04:180:04:21

you cut off the hairy head.

0:04:210:04:24

And the not-so-hairy tail!

0:04:240:04:28

Then carefully cut up

the rest of the spring onions.

0:04:280:04:31

Now that the spring

onions are all cut, it's

0:04:330:04:37

time for my very special ingredient.

0:04:370:04:41

You know what that is, don't you?

0:04:410:04:43

That's right, it's coriander.

0:04:430:04:46

Coriander is a plant that flowers,

0:04:460:04:48

and is one of the most popular herbs

used in cooking.

0:04:480:04:52

It's name comes from a Greek word

that also means bedbugs! Ooh!

0:04:520:04:57

Coriander can be found

growing all over the world.

0:04:570:04:57

Coriander can be found

growing all over the world.

0:04:570:05:01

Usually people only eat coriander

leaves and seeds,

0:05:010:05:04

but you can eat

the rest of the plant, too.

0:05:040:05:08

The taste of coriander is very

strong.

0:05:080:05:11

Most people either love it

or hate it.

0:05:110:05:14

Let's see if that's true for Conor's

friends.

0:05:150:05:19

So, coriander is right here.

0:05:190:05:24

Carefully cut it up with scissors...

0:05:240:05:28

then add it to your mixture.

0:05:280:05:29

Spring onions next.

0:05:310:05:33

And the stock Conor made earlier.

0:05:350:05:37

Now just give it a really good

mix...

0:05:380:05:41

And then you need to split

it into fours by using this tray.

0:05:410:05:47

And four muffin cases.

0:05:470:05:49

And then you need to put all the

haggis in, just...

0:05:490:05:52

like...that.

0:05:520:05:54

So, after you pat it down,

0:05:560:05:59

you need an adult to put

it in the oven for 40 minutes.

0:05:590:06:02

Dad!

Absolutely, Conor.

0:06:020:06:05

And Dad's already made some

neeps and tatties!

0:06:050:06:08

These are now cool enough for you to

mash, Conor.

Thank you.

0:06:080:06:12

In Scotland,

potatoes are called tatties.

0:06:140:06:17

Once they're nicely mashed,

and milk and butter.

0:06:170:06:21

And now we had a pinch of salt.

0:06:210:06:23

Now I need to go on to the neeps.

0:06:270:06:29

Neeps are also known as swede.

0:06:300:06:33

Just need to push down really hard

0:06:330:06:36

to make it as mashed as possible.

0:06:360:06:40

Three, four, five...

0:06:400:06:43

Dad, is it ready?

0:06:430:06:45

Yeah, that looks great, Conor.

0:06:450:06:47

Now I need to get ready for my

friends to come over.

0:06:470:06:51

If you'd like to cook Conor's

vegetarian haggis with neeps

0:06:510:06:54

and tatties, add stock powder to

warm water and give it a mix.

0:06:540:06:58

Drain kidney beans and mash them up.

0:07:010:07:04

Put them into a bowl...

0:07:070:07:11

tear up some mushrooms...

0:07:110:07:13

grate a carrot...

0:07:130:07:16

and add to the bowl.

0:07:160:07:18

Chopped hazelnuts next.

0:07:190:07:22

porridge oats...

0:07:220:07:25

nutmeg...

0:07:250:07:27

and black pepper.

0:07:270:07:28

Carefully top and tail spring onions

and chop them up.

0:07:300:07:33

Then chop coriander, just like this.

0:07:370:07:40

Then add them to the bowl.

0:07:410:07:43

Pour in the stock mixture...

0:07:450:07:48

and give it a really good mix.

0:07:480:07:50

Spoon the haggis

mixture into the muffin cases...

0:07:530:07:57

then ask a grown-up to put them

in the oven,

0:07:570:08:00

and to help you boil the tatties.

0:08:000:08:03

And your neeps!

0:08:030:08:06

And when they're slightly cooled,

add milk,

0:08:060:08:09

butter and

a pinch of salt to the potatoes...

0:08:090:08:13

and mash it altogether.

0:08:150:08:18

Then mash your neeps

in the same way.

0:08:180:08:21

And they're ready to serve when

your vegetarian haggis is cooked.

0:08:220:08:27

Now, there's just enough time

for Connor to get the table ready.

0:08:270:08:32

Oh, look! Thistles!

0:08:330:08:35

A well-known symbol of Scotland

there.

0:08:350:08:37

There's only one more thing

Conor needs.

0:08:370:08:40

DOORBELL

0:08:400:08:43

Who's that?!

0:08:400:08:43

Have, Conor's friends arrived early?

0:08:430:08:46

Oh, hi, Dave. Please, come in.

Thanks, Conor.

Oh, it's Dave -

0:08:460:08:50

a family friend who plays

the Scottish bagpipes.

0:08:500:08:53

DOORBELL

And that'll be Conor's friends!

0:08:530:08:57

Hello, Conor.

Hi.

Guys, come in.

0:08:570:09:00

Now everyone's washed their hands

and they're ready to eat.

0:09:000:09:03

Wow, Conor, how did you do this?

This is the best!

0:09:030:09:06

This is amazing, Conor.

Take a seat, guys.

0:09:060:09:10

Oh, Conor, there's

nice designs on these plates.

0:09:100:09:13

I have prepared a very Scottish meal

for you.

0:09:130:09:16

But before we eat, I have got a

surprise as well.

0:09:160:09:20

And here's Dave to

pipe in the haggis.

0:09:200:09:24

HE PLAYS "SCOTLAND THE BRAVE"

0:09:240:09:28

LAUGHTER

0:09:280:09:30

Wow! It sounds really musical.

Yeah, it's really good, isn't it?

0:09:300:09:34

That is really great.

0:09:340:09:36

And here's Dad with the cooked

haggis.

0:09:400:09:42

So this is my vegetarian haggis.

I hope you like it.

0:09:420:09:46

The haggis looks delicious,

now it's cooked and golden brown.

0:09:460:09:51

And here's the neeps and tatties.

0:09:550:09:57

Mmm, they smell yum-yum!

Mmm, this looks delicious, Conor.

0:09:570:10:03

Oh, it certainly does, Conor.

0:10:030:10:05

Please, eat and enjoy.

0:10:050:10:07

Ah, lots of lovely colours

and variety there.

0:10:070:10:10

I can't wait to taste it.

0:10:100:10:11

Earlier on, no-one was sure

about the taste of fresh coriander.

0:10:110:10:16

Do you think they'll change their

mind when they taste it in Conor's

0:10:160:10:20

vegetarian haggis?

Delicious.

0:10:200:10:23

That's really good, Conor.

0:10:230:10:25

This haggis is amazing.

Thanks.

You're welcome.

0:10:250:10:29

Conor, I could eat millions of these

plates, it's great!

0:10:290:10:32

Thanks!

Well done, Conor.

0:10:320:10:34

It looks like they do like the taste

of coriander after all.

0:10:340:10:38

Did you enjoy the special

ingredient?

0:10:380:10:40

What is it?

Do you know

what it is? It's coriander.

0:10:400:10:43

Coriander?! How did

it taste so good?!

0:10:430:10:46

Yeah, coriander goes well with a lot

of things.

Yeah.

0:10:460:10:49

And thanks for coming

to my World Kitchen.

0:10:490:10:52

Connor lives in Scotland. He makes a delicious vegetarian haggis, to share with his friends. He serves his tasty haggis with freshly mashed neeps and tatties. As an extra special surprise, Connor has arranged for a special guest to play the Scottish bagpipes as the haggis is served, and his friends have no idea about this special surprise! They are all looking forward to trying the food, but they were not very keen on fresh coriander, which is one of the ingredients. Connor hopes to change their minds when they taste his vegetarian haggis.
