Oh yes we can! Sometimes sheeps like to dress up as wolves! So when vegans want to cheat on their vegetables they eat more vegetables that are dressed up as meat! There are so many faux meat products out there that taste amazing, but one of my favourites is Gardein. So today’s recipe uses one of their great products which is Beefless tips that taste amazingly like steak but no dead animals. So it’s a win win in my books! A British classic and a pub favourite, and probably one of only a few good recipes to come out of the UK, steak and mushroom pie, these beefless tips works marvelously!!

Steak and Mushroom Pie

Steak and Mushroom Pie

To make the pie crust, sift and mix flour and salt together into a large bowl. In a measuring cup add 1/2 a cup of vegetable oil (you can use olive oil as a healthy alternative) and top up to 3/4 cup with almond milk. with a fork mix vigorously. Add to flour mixture and incorporate with a rubber spatula. Use 2/3 of the dough for the bottom and roll it out between wax paper or saran wrap. The other 1/3 is for the top. Don’t worry if your dough is not uniform and is falling apart, the less you handle the dough the flakier it will be! Fill the pie with the filling and bake at 400 degrees F for 30 – 35 minutes, until you have a golden hue on your pie top.
