(Dis)Nerds Gotta Eat: Merida’s Vegetarian Haggis

“It’s Just a wee sheep stomach!” Nope, not anymore. Hey Fangirls, this week we’ve got something that I’ve been excited to try since I first saw Brave; a vegetarian dish inspired by Haggis. Haggis is typically a dish made in sheep stomach, but for gals like me, that’s even more unappealing than to your average human. Being vegetarian means finding protein in places other than meat, but I know very few people who don’t experiment with food to find new ways to get their main courses other than frozen fake meat burgers.

It seems fancy, and something only your local barista could conjure up, but you can very easily brew this stuff right at home.

The three sisters (corn, beans, and squash), are used in all sorts of dishes in Native American culture, as they were the three main crops. It was so easy to make and super delicious, a meal fit for Chief Powhatan’s homecoming.
