Makes around 24
0.1 each finger

150g onion
100g mushrooms
250g carrots
250g red capsicum
200g white cabbage
1-2 Tbl olive oil
225g Fate all purpose mix
pepper to season
2 vegetable stock cubes
125g Fate breadcrumbs
oil for frying

Cut the vegetables into small, even sized pieces. Place them onto a large baking tray enough to take them more or less in one layer. Sprinkle with olive oil and toss the vegetables to lightly coat.
Either place under the hot grill or into an oven 220 degrees.
Cook for 15-20 mins until they are cooked but not soft.
Leave to cool a little, then place the vegetables in a food processor.
Crumble in the vegetable stock cube, and blend to chop the vegetables into small pieces but not too fine. Add pepper to season.
Place the processed vegetables into a bowl and add the Fate mix.
Stir the mixture together. The mixture will seem a little dry at first but as you continue it will become moist. Stop mixing as soon as it becomes sticky.
Sprinkle a good layer of breadcrumbs onto a large chopping board. Place the vegetable mixture on top of the breadcrumbs. Sprinkle more breadcrumbs on top. Use you hands to gently push the vegetable mixture into a rectangle about 30cm x 20cm. Sprinkle with more breadcrumbs.
Use a knife to cut the mixture lengthways, and then each half into 12 fingers.
Take each vegetable and place in a dish of breadcrumbs, just to lightly coat the sides of the fingers.
The fingers can be shallow fried in oil until golden brown.
Drain well and serve hot.
