Celebration Dishes, Vegan Main Dishes

Nancy’s Seasonal Christmas Savoury Vegan Pie

A Christmasy Pie, with mushrooms, chestnuts and pinto beans, in a lemon, cashew cream and coconut milk sauce, served with cranberry sauce.

I will shortly be celebrating my second truly vegan christmas, and there’s no looking back.  I’m liking it too much.  Last year I managed a passable nut roast, so this year I thought I’d get ahead with my planning and pull out a few stops.  I’m noticing that, on high days and holidays when family and friends gather, and I bring a vegan dish to the table, my meat-eating relatives all make a bee-line for it, so much so I have to ward them off to make sure me and my partner get enough!  Still, I’m not complaining, because it’s a nice way to open people’s minds to plant-based cooking that’s based on cruelty-free, healthy and nutritious ingredients.  I just have to remind myself to make more than enough to go round.

Recipe

Serves 6

Apart from the cashew nuts process*** (which needs to be done 3 hours in advance) – 90 minutes is ample time to prepare and bake this pie.
