Day 10: 'Chicken' & Vegetable Pie

After trying out my TVP mince in my Spaghetti and 'Meat'balls recipe, I came to the conclusion that the little vegetable chunks reminded me of those similar to chicken and vegetable pies bought at gas stations (very guilty of eating them once upon a time). Along with that thought, I've never made an actual pastry pie before. So enough babble here's the recipe!!

'Chicken' & Vegetable Pie

 

 



































Ingredients:
Vegan Flaky or Puff Pastry
2 Cups Cooked TVP minced
2 Cups Vegan Chicken Stock

5 & 1/2 Cups Vegetable Stock
3 Carrots, diced
1 Cup Peas
1 Cup Corn Kernals

1 Large Onion, diced
3/4 Tsp Thyme, minced
3/4 Tsp Sage, minced
1 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
3 Tbsp Olive oil

Roux:
3/4 Cup Flour
3/4 Cup Nuttelex (vegan margerine)

Salt & Pepper, to taste

Method: 
1. In a frying pan add olive oil, onion, carrots, thyme and sage. Cook for 10 mins.

2. To make a roux: In a small saucepan add vegan margerine, whisk in flour gradually until a thick light brown mixture appears.

3. Boil stock in a large stockpot and add in carrot mixture, then add in peas and carrots. Simmer until ingredients are soft.

4. Slowly add in roux to stock mixture a tablespoon at a time mixing with a whisk. A thick creamy mixture should form. Add in salt and pepper to taste. Take off heat and set aside.

5. When chicken mixture has cooled line a pie dish with pastry and pour in mixture. Top with a layer of pastry and scour edges with a fork.

6. Bake at 200c for approximately 25-30 mins or until pastry is brown and crunchy. Take out of oven and let cool. Serve with mushroom gravy and mashed potatoes or cheezy polenta. Enjoy!
