Ingredients

  • 260 g plain flour and 130g margarine rubbed together for pastry (alternatively, buy pre-prepared shortcrust pastry such as Jus-rol)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 40 g chopped onion
  • 40 g chopped broccoli
  • 30 g tinned sweetcorn
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 1 block plain firm tofu
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened soya milk
  • 40 g vegan cheese
  • 1 shake salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional but makes it cheesier)

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 200oC.
  • If you're making your pastry from scratch, rub the margarine into the flour to create 'breadcrumbs'. Add enough cold water to make a soft dough (not sticky). Roll out and press into a 7in round dish.
  • For the filling, first flash fry the onion, garlic and broccoli in a touch of olive oil.
  • Take off the heat and add the sweetcorn, mixing together with a little salt and pepper.
  • Crumble the tofu into a blender with 20g cheese and soya milk. Blend.
  • Mix the nutritional yeast and fried vegetables in with your tofu mixture.
  • Add your finished filling to your pastry, level out and sprinkle your remaining 20g cheese on top.
  • Cook for 45 minutes or until browning on top.
  • Allow to cool and then ENJOY!
