Is there such a thing as...

Post them up and every so often I'll snaffle them and put them on the blog, if that's okay? It'll save you the trouble of emailing them to me. (It will mean you lose out on our charming personal interaction but I sense you can live with that.)

Is there such a thing as...

A decent tasting vegetable/vegetarian pie without cheese in? I've found lots of nice ones like potato & cheese, spinach & feta, but nothing that grabs my attention that's dairy free.

Suppose maybe I could look for a vegan recipe actually.

I have a recipe for samosa pie that is dairy free... https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/samosa-pie

ETA: Which, like a dope, I forgot has meat in, but you could leave it out just like a regular samosa can just be potatoes and veg...

I've discovered an amazing cook book called The Mystic Cookfire. On the days I can be bothered to cook, it is always something from here. It's a vegan cook book, but every recipe is a dream and doesn't feel vegan at all. I'm making a rosemary infused ratatouille pie for tea today, which would only be better if someone was making it instead of me. Would definitely recommend looking at the book, even though it isn't cheap x

I do a quick veg casserole in the slow cooker - carrot, parsnip, mushrooms, onion, potato, haricot beans and a tin of mushroom soup as the sauce. Its nice as a winter casserole, but I imagine it would also work as a pie filling.

I fry red onions slowly until they are pretty dry, and the same with mushrooms. Then mix those with pine nuts and sultanas, with some oregano or whatever. Then use that as a filling for filo parcels or filo pie or similar.

I have a nice one which was from a bbc good food Xmas vegetarian mag - red pepper, sweet potato and fennel in a slightly spicy sauce (Cajun spice, plus chillies if you want it hotter) which you make with veg juice ( we sometimes juiced our own or bought v8 type juice). Let me know if you want details, although actually it might be packed away....
If you're interested I'll pick OHs brain too later, we haven't made it for a couple of years but not because it's not nice, I love it! Think it also involved some tinned beans and fresh coriander, and you thicken the sauce with cornflour. Cook it on the hob then finish in the oven, and cook squares of puff pastry separately to go on top.

Oh, and another one: Google Jamie's vegetarian Wellington. It's what we had for Christmas this year. It's a bit fiddly - lots of different bits in different pans which are then all mixed together... I'm fairly sure you could bung most of it in together though.

DH makes a delicious cashew and mushroom pie. I can try to find the recipe if you're interested. H and K - that book sounds amazing! We eat mainly vegan at home and I'm getting sooooo bored of our usual options. I need some inspiration!

Thanks all. Some very tasty sounding ideas. Next question is will the children eat any of them?!

Nope. They may eat a small amount of the pastry, but that's it. Sigh.
