Is there such a thing as a vegan doner kebab?
Yes there is! I recently visited the Horse and Plough pub in Bingham, they are part of the Castle Rock dynasty so I knew I’d be able to have some vegan beer (if I so desired) and a good selection of vegan dishes
And there it was; vegan doner kebab with all the trimmings. Sold!
My other half had boring old regular fish and chips (no imagination). The kebab is served in a homemade flatbread smothered in chilli sauce, minted yoghurt and plenty of salad and a basket of thin French fries. The ‘meat’ itself was, I think, thinly sliced seitan that was heavily seasoned with herbs like rosemary.
My appetite was certainly whetted and fully sated by the end.
I’ve never eaten a meat kebab, but this vegan version certainly looked like the real deal and tasted even better. The flatbread wasn’t overlarge or doughy, all the added extras worked really well together and the texture of the ‘meat’ was nice and chewy and contrasted well with all the other softer textures.
In short it was an absolute triumph. The vegan reputation of the Horse and Plough is growing and this dish will certainly not disappoint
