Vegetarian mushroom pie

    1 hour 20 min

    A super-delicious pie, which is simple to make. Mushrooms with lashings of gravy are hidden under a flaky pastry lid. For more flavour, try fancy mushrooms, such as shiitake or chanterelles.

    This appears to be going to taste delicious, but no way would this feed six. It might do two people with smallish appetites!! Are the quantities wrong in the recipe?  -  09 Feb 2014
