Pie pie… vegan … pie… Who wants pie? We all want pie!

Introducing my simple tofu veg pie with mixed salad and my favourite pepper jam (check condiments tab for recipe)
pastry 2
Veg mix:
A head of broccoli
3 carrots
1 red pepper
1 onion
Slice, dice and fry off the pepper and onion
Chop, pop in a pot and boil the broccoli and carrots until soft and tender
pastry
For the creamy sauce:
Get your hand blender at the ready and blitz the following
A block of tofu
A drop of any plant based milk,
A sprinkle of onion and garlic powder and a smattering of salt, pepper and mixed herbs.
pastry 3

For the pastry: 1 cup of plain flour, a pinch of salt mixed with 3/4 cup of cold “non butter butter” or coconut oil. I used a mix of both as I was running low. Knead gently to a crumb and then slowly add ice cold water until it becomes a dough. Roll out larger than the mould and fit.

pastry 4
Pour in veg and sauce mix. I had a little left over pastry for the criss cross effect but it’s just as good without. Add a little side salad, a spoon of pepper jam, take a deep breath and EAT!
