1. Sausage & Mushroom Pie

If you´re looking for nice hearty vegan main dishes, try this filling pie, which would be lovely with mashed potato, or new potatoes and salad.

· 500g block of vegan frozen puff pastry, defrosted (in the UK JusRol is vegan)

· couple of tablespoons of olive oil

· 1 pack of Linda McCartney sausages (or any other vegan ones)

· 1 leek, chopped

· 10 large flat mushrooms

· a good handful of cashew nuts

· 1 tin of red kidney beans

· a couple of tablespoons of soy sauce

· slosh of cider or wine

· a couple of bay leaves

Heat the oven to 200C/400F and cook the sausages in there while preparing the rest of the filling. Heat the oil and cook the leek for a few minutes until softened with the bay leaves. Roughly chop and add the mushrooms and cook for a further few minutes. Add the nuts, beans, soy sauce, cider/wine and cook for a short while until well combined. Chop the sausages into large chunks and place them in a large pie dish with the rest of the mixture (you may want to remove the bay leaves at this point). Roll out the pastry and stick it on top. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes until the pastry is well-risen and golden brown.
