Homity pie

homity pie on a white plateIt’s been a funny old month in terms of weather, one minute it’s warm and sunny the next it’s cold and wetter than an otters pocket. I could say this has affected my eating habit’s, but really I’m the sort of person that eats what I fancy when I fancy it, as a result I have been known – quite often, to gorge on hot soup, pies and roast dinners on a sweltering hot summers day, and likewise tucking into a gazpacho or a salad when snow is belting down outside. Today however, nature has tuned itself in to my taste buds, and with a distinct nip in the air I decided today was a pie making day.

I get pretty fed up sometimes by people who assume that vegetarian food is nothing but boring, dull, vapid animal flesh impersonators of nut roasts, soya sausages and fake bacon. I take no stock or pride in these sorts of dishes, I do however take pride in making something that’s delicious but just so happens to not have meat in it, and this recipe is just that. You could add bacon, chicken or some other meat to it, but why? Why add when nothing is missing.

Homity pie was very popular during the 80′s when the vegetarian movement kicked off big time. Cranks restaurant gave vegetarians not just a meal, but a varied and tasty selection of dishes that were affordable, nutritious and tasty. This dandy pie was one of their best sellers and one I shall be definitely making again, Enjoy.

      Cheers Dom, appreciate it. The pastry was rather good if I do say so myself, crumbly and savoury, with just the right amount of crispness. I will be making this one again for sure.

Come on now, you know you want to say something
