A classic and tasty British dish, veggie/vegan style. This uses frozen veggie mince, which is available just about everywhere: Linda McCartney; Asda; Sainsbury;Tesco etc - just avoid Quorn which contains egg and dairy.
Good served with greens (eg broccoli; Brussels sprouts; sauteed shredded cabbage; curly kale) and lightly steamed carrots.
This creamy, delicous pie will win over meat-eating family members! Thanks to Fry's for this and check out more superb recipes on the Fry's website.

A tasty, filling soup. Make the day before if possible – or perhaps make a double batch to eat on the second fast day of the week?

An aromatic, fragrant and all-round gorgeous big soup or main meal. My lovely niece made this for us one snowy weekend in Wales – and kindly passed on her recipe. Thank you, Sarah Key Rice!
Although it looks like quite a long list of ingredients, it’s not difficult. Just get everything out that you need, chop the vegetables and go for it. It’s surprisingly fast – even quicker if you cheat and use a ready-chopped stir-fry mix with some added green beans and peas.
Another lovely recipe from our own Helen Rossiter, media whizz and vegan goddess! She's kindly donated it from her own fab food and crochet blog, Lots of Nice Things (cooked, hooked and created).
This is a lovely, flavoursome recipe that is very adapatable. We like cooked aubergine and red peppers in with it - but experiment! Like most stews, it tastes even nicer the next day.
Serve with a grain - this can be cooked while the stew simmers. It works well with
- wholemeal couscous
- wholemeal bulghur
- brown rice
