Peppered mushroom & blue cheese pie

Method

  • Heat a little oil and a good dollop of butter in a heavy-bottomed casserole and gently toss the onion and mushrooms with seasonings until well coated. Then cook until the mushrooms have wilted a bit.
  • Add the flour and briefly cook, continually mixing until well combined.
  • Then add the tomatoes with about 1½ cups stock, the soy and peppercorns. Mix well and gently cook for about 10 mins until the mushrooms are tender and the sauce is thick and fragrant, adding more stock as you do so and stirring now and again.
  • Stir though the parsley and blue cheese. Then transfer to a pie or gratin dish and set aside for 5-10 mins to cool a little.
  • When ready, preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Whisk the egg with the milk.
  • Then place the pastry sheet on top of the pie dish. Generously paint with egg wash and cook in the oven for about 15 mins until golden brown and bubbling.
  • Serve with a simple green salad on the side.
