For the filling:
Into a pot pop the following
Half a chopped carrot
1 chopped leek
1/2 an onion (optional)
1 finely sliced red chilli
A handful of tofu
1 cup of each of the following: mung beans, toasted spelt (rice works fine too), chopped tomatoes
Add 3 cups of water
Bring to the boil, reduce, season to your liking. I kept it simple with salt, pep, a tiny squeeze of agave and nutritional yeast flakes.
Let it simmer for 20 min then pop it into a blender with a generous handful of walnuts and blitz.
