*Each recipe from the book is designed to feed two people.
200 g frozen carrots
200 g frozen parsnips
600 g frozen sweet potatoes
2 tbsp olive oil
150 g TVP (textured vegetable protein) aka soy protein
2 tbsp fried onions
1 tsp frozen thyme
1⁄2 tsp salt
60 g tomato coulis
1 tbsp malted yeast
2 ready-rolled vegan shortcrust pastry sheets
Coconut margarine / other margarine
Preheat the oven to 180°C (gas mark 4).
In a large pot, sweat all the vegetables over a high heat for 10 minutes. Once the sweet potato is soft, add the olive oil and mix well.
Add the TVP, fried onions, thyme and season with salt. Mix everything together and leave to stew for 5 minutes.
Off the heat, add the tomato coulis and malted yeast.
Line a deep pie dish with a sheet of pastry, prick it with a fork and add the filling.
Cover with the second pastry sheet and pinch the edges together to make a thick rim around the edge.
Remove any excess pastry if it is larger that the pie dish. Brush the top of the pastry with melted margarine.
Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from the pie dish, cut into slices and serve.
