Prep time

Cook time



  • 1 cup plant-based milk
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups finely chopped mushrooms
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ¼ tsp dried oregano
  • Crumb
  • ½ cup wholemeal flour
  • 1 cup plant-based milk
  • 1½ cups dried polenta
  • Cashew aioli
  • 1 cups raw cashews
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp apple cider vinegar


  • Mix the milk and stock together in a saucepan. Take half a cup of the milk and stock mixture and add it to the flour, mix well to a slurry.
  • Add the slurry to the remaining milk and stock mixture and whisk over a high heat constantly until it boils and thickens. Reduce the heat to very low and simmer for 10 mins, stirring occasionally to make a thick paste.
  • Meanwhile, sauté the onions and garlic. Then add to the sauce. Sauté the mushrooms and add to the sauce. Add the mustard and oregano and stir well.
  • Place the mushroom sauce mixture into a wide shallow bowl then place in the fridge or freezer to cool. Remove from the fridge when completely cooled.
  • Get 3 bowls or shallow dishes. Fill the first with wholemeal flour, the second with milk, and the third with polenta.
  • Take 2 tbsp of the mixture and, using your hands, roll into a small ball. Repeat with the remaining mixture (will make 8 croquettes).
  • Dip each ball briefly into flour, followed by the milk, and then the polenta. Then place on a tray lined with greaseproof baking paper.
  • Bake for 20 mins until golden-brown. Then remove from the oven and let cool slightly for 15 mins.
  • For the cashew aioli, place all ingredients in a high-powered blender and puree to a very smooth creamy consistency.
  • Serve the croquettes with the aioli.
