Ingredients

For The Pie Crust

  • cup whole wheat or wholemeal flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup cold vegan butter cubed
  • 4-6 tbsp ice cold water

For The Filling

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 cup mushrooms chopped
  • 2 potatoes diced
  • 3 cups frozen vegetables
  • 6 oz frozen spinach
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • ¼ tsp white pepper
  • ½ tsp dried rosemary
  • fresh parsley chopped

For The Topping

  • 3 tbsp olive oil or unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds

Instructions

For The Pastry

  • Add the flour, salt, and butter to a mixing bowl and rub with fingers until crumbly.
  • Slowly add the chilled water until a dough starts to form.
  • Shape dough into a disc shape.
  • Cover in plastic wrap and allow to rest in the fridge for 1 hour.

For The Pie Filling

  • Meanwhile, prepare the pie filling by heating 3 tbsp of oil in a large saucepan. Saute the onion and garlic until translucent.
  • Add the mushrooms and potatoes and saute for another 3-4 minutes. Add the dried herbs.
  • Add the frozen vegetables and spinach to the saucepan, cook until softened.
  • Stir through the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the vegetable stock and almond milk, stir to ensure there are no flour lumps.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens.
  • Remove from the heat and stir through the chopped parsley.
  • Pour the filling into a 9 inch round ovenproof pie dish. Allow to cool.
  • Remove the dough from the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F / 180 C.
  • Roll the dough into a large enough circle to cover the pie dish. Top the pie filling with the dough, trim edges and use a fork to seal edges.
  • Brush the top of the pastry with a thin layer of oil or almond milk, sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Pierce the pie crust with a knife to allow steam to come out while cooking.
  • Place the pie into the oven and cook for 30 minutes or until the pie crust is golden brown.
  • All the pie to cool for a few minutes before serving.
