- 1 tbsp sesame seed oil
- 3 spring onions, sliced
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 150g (5.3 oz) oyster mushrooms
- 2 large potatoes, peeled, cubed and boiled
- 1 red chilli, chopped
- 1 tbsp cornflour
- 1 tsp miso paste
- 60ml (2 fl oz) dark soy sauce
- 1 sheet dairy-free puff pastry
- 30g (1 oz) fresh spinach
For plant-based ‘egg-wash’:
- 1 tbsp chickpea/aquafaba water
- 1 tbsp coconut or almond milk
- 1tsp olive oil
- In a wok or large skillet, add 1 tablespoon sesame seed oil over medium high heat. Add spring onions, brown onion, garlic and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Take care to not brown the vegetables.
- Add mushrooms and sauté 2-3 minutes until the vegetables are almost tender then add potatoes and chilli and cook for a further 3-4 minutes. Then add cornflour and stir until all the vegetables are covered.
- In a small mixing bowl, combine miso paste and soy sauce until smooth. Add the paste to the vegetables and cook for another 2 minutes over medium-high heat, or until all of the vegetables are cooked. Remove from heat to allow the vegetables to cool down completely.
- In a small bowl, add chickpea water, plant-milk and olive oil. Mix together and set aside.
- Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Place a sheet of baking paper on the baking tray, followed by the puff pastry sheet. Spread the vegetable mixture over the middle third of the pastry, leaving a 2cm (¾ inch) border around the edges. Place baby spinach on top.
- Carefully fold the sides of the pastry over the filling, forming a loaf shape. Join the ends by pressing them together. Roll the loaf over to hide the edges.
- To make a pattern, cut small slits in the loaf. Make sure that you do not cut all the way through. Then brush the loaf with ‘egg-wash’ until completely covered.
- Bake for 20 minutes, or until the loaf is done. The loaf should be puffed and golden in appearance. Remove from the heat and serve. Enjoy!
