Vegan MoFo - You're gonna get me some pie!

I don't have much to say tonight except that I made pot pie and hot diggity damn, it was ace. I apologise for the shit photos - I was hungry!

I had a bit of spare pastry so I stuck some rock stars on it! Or maybe the pie is just a bit emo, who knows!


I used the seitan stew recipe from one of my early mofo posts and the crust was borrowed from Vegan Dad's "chicken" pot pie. Instead of peas & carrots in my stew, I used some frozen veg and added some mushroom and I just made half a batch of the pie crust to make 2 indiviual pies. The flash has made it look a bit anaemic but it's not in real life and they took an hour in my oven.

Messy inside shot of the pie...

And what to do with the leftover pastry? Fill it with jam & peanut butter and bake it for 30 minutes to enjoy with a cup of tea and Supernatural - good plan!

Cooking to: Kings of Leon, again!

  6. I'm bookmarking this right now!

    We made the leek and bean casoulet from VCON twice last week and thought it would be a really good base for a pot pie but wanted to add seitan so I'll check out your version. The crust looks great!
