Mushroom & Aubergine [Eggplant] Pie

We had lots of white mushrooms and two medium sized aubergines to use up.  So I used them in a pie.  I completely eyeballed this, so the recipe is somewhat slapdash:

  • Coarsely chopped mushrooms
  • Diced roasted aubergine
  • Mixed herbs (basil, oregano, etc.)
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • Dash cayenne pepper and Spanish paprika
  • Red wine vinegar
  • A little olive oil
  • Shortcrust pastry

  1. Fry mushrooms in olive oil until soft and brown
  2. Add aubergine
  3. Add a glog of red wine vinegar
  4. Add herbs and seasonings to taste
  5. Allow to simmer until all vinegar is gone, stirring now and then
  6. Heat oven to 190C/375F
  7. Roll out shortcrust pastry and fill with mushroom and aubergine (I made 4 tartlets and one larger pie)
  8. Bake 30 minutes
  9. Serve with basic vegan gravy (flour, nutritional yeast, soy sauce, water)
  10. Ask husband to taste test
  11. Hear husband yell obscenities in his excitement and demand more
  12. Feel smug
  13. Put feet up and enjoy sunshine
