Meat Free Monday: Gardener’s Pie

DSC_1696

This is another recipe from the student cookbook I used before – again using pretty basic ingredients! I would have expected this to take AGES but actually it was around 45-50 minuted including prep time.

This is vegetarian, but could be made vegan by using a vegan cheese to top it off!

This is made up of potatoes (boiled, then sliced), and a LOAD of veggies (onion, celery, tomatoes, green beans – but you could use any vegetables you have!) as well as a tin of beans (borlotti) and some pesto. As you can see – it’s very plant based!

The reason why it doesn’t take too long to cook, is that you cook all the ingredients before you put them in the pie; so the potatoes are boiled, then you have a pan full of all the veggies simmering away until they’re tender. Only then is it all put together and grilled for 10 minutes.

This serves four so it’s great for families, but also just to have a speedy ready meal in the fridge for a day when you don’t have time to cook!
