Wild Mushroom and Beetroot Pie

Wild Mushroom and Beetroot Pie

Are you as mesmerized by the salat greens on top as I am? They are so beautiful they’re almost distracting.

These days, comfort foods are my cravings.

As the temperature goes down, I long for soups, pot roasts and casseroles.

Wild mushroom and beetroot pie ingredients

Shepherd’s Pie is a favorite of mine. It’s one out of a handful of British dishes that I totally enjoy! No offense, but Britain hasn’t made a lot of contributions to the world of culinary except for Shepherd’s Pie and yes Banoffi Pie! Am I right or am I right? 

Flour and vegan margarine in a bowl

I didn’t make many changes to the original recipe. I just added mushrooms and Beetroot. This makes the base for making the pie vegan, just add more ingredients like spices, vegetables or even a drizzle of red wine.

The Beetroot and Wild Mushroom Pie you are looking at right now does not include a crust at all. Before you kick me out I have five solid reasons.

I am a wicked food Grinch

I’m just kidding

Take it easy

Pie base

It’s a little bit healthier

It is all about the filling here anyways. I promise you that. 

But not to worry if you’re more of a crusty person, you’ll find lots of Beetroot and Wild Mushroom Pie with crust recipes on the internet.

But if you’re cool with crust-less pie, join me for a slice of goodness.
