INGREDIENTS

FOR THE ‘BOEREWORS’

  • olive or avocado oil, for frying
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 1 small carrot, finely grated
  • ½ beetroot, cooked
  • 2 potatoes, cooked
  • 60ml peas, cooked
  • small handful parsley, chopped
  • pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 3ml ground cumin
  • 3ml ground coriander

FOR THE TOMATO SAUCE

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 410g tin tomato purée
  • 10ml sugar

 

  • 6 hotdog rolls, cut open

METHOD

  1. For the ‘boerewors’, heat a splash of oil on medium and sauté the onion. Stir in the carrot and cook for about 2 minutes or until the moisture has evaporated. Stir in the remaining ingredients with 80ml of the breadcrumbs. Blitz until mashed. Cool completely.
  2. Divide the mixture into 6 balls. Using a small piece of plastic wrap, shape each into a sausage, rolling with the help of the plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until firm.
  3. Unwrap the sausages and coat in the remaining breadcrumbs. Heat a thin layer of oil on medium and fry the sausages, in batches, for about 5 minutes or until browned on all sides.
  4. For the sauce, heat a splash of oil on medium-high and sauté the onion and garlic. Add the tomato
    purée and sugar, and heat through. Serve the sausages in the rolls with sauce.
