  2. Heat some oil in a large pan. Sauté the onion, garlic and mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms are browned.
  3. Add the spelt and stir until coated in oil then add the cider and cook for 5 minutes. Add a ladleful of stock and stir. Add the sage leaves.
  4. Cook on a medium heat, stirring frequently, adding more stock as required.
  5. When the spelt is cooked, remove the pan from the heat, and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Heat some extra virgin rapeseed oil in a clean pan. Test to see if the oil is hot and add the slices of Vegetarain Black Pudding. Fry until crispy before carefully turning over. When the Vegetarain Black Pudding is cooked on both  sides.
