Flavourful vegetarian pie with mushroom gravy and chunky portabello filling.
You can also use thawed frozen shortcrust pastry sheets for this pie.
Hey, it's me, the submitter... I have noticed that a couple of people are saying that the filling is too watery, that could be due to the wrong type of flour... Rice flour absorbs a lot more water than the same amount of AP flour, if you are going to use AP flour, use more flour than the recipe calls for... - 13 Apr 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I am a vegetarian and live off of stir fried veggies. I believe the best way to make this work is to pre-fry all the veggies so their best flavor comes through. This was a huge hit at my potluck and I'm making it for Christmas this year! Gruyere cheese, sherry, broth and cornstarch are my additions to make it lovely and so, so flavorful. To die for! -Fry the onions in the olive oil until they start to carmelize. -Add the carrots and celery and cook for about 5 minutes. -Add all the mushrooms and stir-fry together with the other veggies until they are all browned, tender, and fragrant. If the carrots and celery are still a little too firm, they'll soften as the pie bakes. -Add 1/2 C Sherry and the tamari. Whisk in about 1 T cornstarch (as you would the rice flour) and simmer until the mixture starts the thicken and bubble. -At this point, add the potatoes and whisk in as much veggie stock as you need to reach a desirable consistency. -Grate in about a 1/4 C Gruyere cheese! The filling is done. Prepare the pie as you would according to the recipe. Grate a little gruyere cheese over the top before popping it into the oven and you will be in heaven! - 19 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This recipe was perfect veg. recipe. My boyfriend and I are not vegetarian though his mother and sister are and this was wonderful. Everyone raved about it. Though by following the recipe I made enough for 3 pies. So I ended up baking it in a casserole dish. I paired it with grilled asparagus tossed in olive oil, and lightly seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic. Delecious! - 06 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
