Vegan Meat Pie
Here it is, the last meat pie and not the least, because it’s my favorite! Indeed, according to my friends, it reproduces the texture of meat so well that they believe their boyfriend wouldn’t see the difference! The dosage of spices is perfect, making it a tasty recipe that doesn’t even need ketchup, I swear! And this is the one I’ll bring to my big family party :)

4 Tbsp (60 ml) soy sauce
1 Tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup
1/4 cup (60 ml) nutritional yeast
2 1/2 cups (625 ml) textured vegetable protein (TVP)
1 Tbsp (15 ml) flour
3 potatoes, cut into small dices (1/2 inch)
1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) powdered mustard
1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) nutmeg
1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) cinnamon

I didn’t have enough time to make my own dough, so I bought it, making sure there was no animal product in the ingredients. For a homemade dough recipe, it's here!
Some unsweetened soy milk
In a saucepan, put the margarine and sear the onions, garlic and mushrooms for 8 minutes over medium-high heat.
Add mushroom broth, soy sauce, maple syrup, nutritional yeast and spices. Bring to a boil.
Add textured vegetable protein and simmer over medium heat until almost all the liquid is absorbed (app 30 minutes).
Add flour and mix well.
Finally, add the potato cubes to the mixture.
Preheat the oven to 375 ° F and place the rack in the center.
On a clean surface, sprinkle flour and, using a rolling pin, roll down a ball of dough to a thickness of about 4 mm. Add flour to the surface or dough as needed.
Put the dough in the bottom of a pie dish. Add the pie filling and brush the edges of the dough with unsweetened soy milk.
Lower the second portion of dough, still adding a little flour to the surface. You can take the opportunity to make some motives with a cookie cutter or a small knife. Put gently on top of your pie dish.
With a fork, press on the edges of the dough to stick well together the base and the top, to have a nice solid crust.
With a knife, cut the excess dough out of your plate.
Finally, brush the crust with unsweetened soy milk to allow it to brown well without being too dry.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes.
