Kuba Winkowski's interesting taco recipe uses white pudding to create a spiced mince-like filling with both fresh and dried mushrooms. He tops them with a broad bean guacamole and a zingy sauerkraut slaw. You can of course use ready-made sauerkraut, but for tastier results, learn how to make your own here.

Kuba uses Clonakilty Whitepudding as a delicious substitute to minced meat. Made with Irish pork, oats, onions and a secret family spice mix (and nothing else), Clonakilty Whitepudding can be found in selected Sainsbury's, Ocado and Budgens stores plus other leading retailers across the UK.

To serve


  • Blender



Begin by making the dough for the buckwheat tortillas. Place the flours, salt and oil in a bowl and pour in the water bit by bit, stirring with a fork until you have a dough – you may not need all the water. Tip out onto a clean surface and knead the dough for 5 minutes, then cover and leave to rest for 15 minutes

  • 190g of plain flour
  • 70g of buckwheat flour
  • 5g of salt
  • 70g of neutral oil, such as sunflower oil or groundnut
  • 160g of warm water

To make the sauerkraut slaw, roughly chop up the sauerkraut and mix with the rest of the ingredients. Taste and season, then set aside


To make the broad bean guacamole, blanch the broad beans in salted boiling water for 2-3 minutes, then plunge them into iced water to retain the bright green colour. Shell the beans from their pale outer casing and place into a blender


Blitz the beans to a coarse paste then mix with the rest of the ingredients. Taste and season with salt, pepper and lime juice


Now the cold elements are prepared, finish the tortillas and cook the white pudding filling. Break up the white pudding using the back of a fork into small pieces resembling minced meat


Place a frying pan over a medium heat with the oil and gently fry the onion and garlic until soft. Add the finely chopped mushrooms and the white pudding and fry until nice and caramelised


Drain the soaked porcini (reserving the water) and finely chop them. Add them to the pan along with the soaking water, diced chilli and spices and scrape the bottom of the pan to extract all the flavour. Stir in the tomato purée and mango chutney and cook for a couple more minutes. Season with lime juice, salt and pepper and keep warm on a very low temperature whilst you cook the tortillas


Divide the dough into 12 balls, then roll each one into thin, round tortillas. Place a large frying pan over a high heat and, once smoking, add a tortilla and turn down the heat to medium. When the bottom of the tortilla has some brown spots, flip it and cook until the second side is browned in spots and the tortilla looks dry around the edges. Each tortilla will take about 1-2 minutes to cook. Transfer the cooked tortillas to a dish and keep them covered with a tea towel as you work to prevent them from drying out


To serve, bring everything to the table. Get your guests to spoon the white pudding mixture into the middle of a warm tortilla and top with a spoonful of the guacamole and sauerkraut slaw. Finish with the extra cheese, sour cream, coriander and jalapeño peppers and enjoy with extra lime wedges on the side
