This unusual dish has a deliciously rich taste and texture. Served with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable, it would make a nutritious meal for three. Don't be put off by the long cooking time - the actual preparation is very easy.



Gently fry the onion and garlic in the oil until the onion just begins to brown. Mix in the remaining ingredients and stir thoroughly. (If the mixture is too liquid, add a little more soya flour.)

Transfer the mixture to a pudding basin. Cover with a sheet of greaseproof paper. Steam for 2½ hours, then turn out onto a warmed dinner plate.
