My first attempt of making a vegan savoury pie actually went okay.
-I made the crust out of chickpeas, soy-flour and coconut oil (omg when the pie had chilled over night in the fridge the crust tasted like crunchy hummus <3333).
-I pressed out the dough in two forms, chilled them in the fridge for about 10 mins before preheating them in the oven for 20 mins.
-Chopped up a bunch of veggies such as zucchini, cauliflower, sweet potato and put them in the oven to soften, together with salt, pepper plus lots of fresh basil and rosemary of course.
-Whipped up a vegan cream cheese sauce to go as filling. Oat cooking cream, oat créme fraiche, some soygurt, potato starch, turmeric, pepper, salt and lots of other spices.
By mixing all the softly cooked veggies together with the new Finnish vegan protein invention “Nyhtökaura”, or Pulled Oats as it is called, then pouring over the sassy ch££sy sauciness and throwing this mess of greatness in the oven, I had created DA TARADAAA, a pie.
This dish may not look like much to the world, but it is perfect for clearing out half mushy tomatoes or what not from your fridge. And it tastes great. And it fills your stomach. What have we learned today friends? Don’t throw away mushy greens, make pie!
