Mushroom and Potato Pot Pie reminds me of days gone yonder; a bit of stodge as the cold seasons draw close and something that is warming, satisfactory and leads to a good sleep after. I love this dish because it uses a few choice ingredients and yet is wholesome.

My recipes are featured in vegan speciality publications: Nourished, Vegan Life, Plant Based and Vegan, Food and Living.

Order my first self-published book, “Essence: The Beginner’s Guide to Veganism” part of the three-part Circle of Food series. My second book “Presence: The Ascending Vegan” – which explores how to maintain a vegan practice is out in 2027 – I have compiled all the chapters including recipes.

Going strong since 2013.
