Our version of papet vaudois with tempeh and kimchi

Papet vaudois is a popular dish from the canton Vaud, in Switzerland. It consists of a sausage with cabbage on top of a potato-leek bed, with cream and white wine.

The papet symbolically represents the colors of the Vaudois flag (white for potatoes and green for leeks).

For SHIFT Lausanne 2022, we created our own version of this dish using tempeh and kimchi.

We grew the tempeh in a sausage shape with the cabbage inside. For the potato-leek base, we used fermented leek (kimchi style but without the red spices), which tasted a bit like olives and balanced very well with the creamy potatoes.

The recipe below is an adaptation of our original recipe.
