But what to serve with them…?
Here’s a couple of easy vegan recipes for you.
1. Sweet Potato Fries.
Keep it simple with a tasty serving of fries - a sure fire way to enjoy our new Cheatin’ Cheeze Pasty.
👍 These are very easy to make at home 😋
Get the oven hot - 200℃ / 400℉ / gas mark 4.
Take two sweet spuds - this will be enough for 2 -3 people.
Give them a scrub to remove any dirt - don’t peel them as most of the goodness is in that skin! (sweet spud skins are rich in fibre, antioxidants, and nutrients like potassium, manganese, and vitamins A, C, and E).
Cut them lengthwise into wedges. Wedge size will depend on the size of your spud, but try to make them as even as possible - this will help when cooking.
Place the wedges in a bowl and drizzle over approximately a tablespoon of olive oil.
Sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper.
Get your hands in and make sure the wedges have nice covering of oil.
Place them in a baking tray - just one layer make sure you space them apart to avoid them going soft.
Place in the oven for about 30 - 40 minutes.This will depend on your wedge size!
Your pasty will only need to go in for about 20 minutes and can go in the oven at the same temperature, but on the shelf under your fries.
But if you really can’t be bothered to make your own..you can find sweet potato fries in any frozen cabinets of most stores 😉
2. Root Mash
This is such a tasty change to your standard mash and just ideal with our Nips and Nuts Pie - or any pie!
👉🏻To serve about 4 people.
Scrub the carrots and parsnips to remove any dirt - you can peel them if you prefer. Cut them into even sized chunks. Then place in a pan of slightly salted water and bring to the boil - cook until tender. Test by sticking a knife in, if the chunk just drops off - they’re ready.
Potatoes - again you don’t have to peel these, just scrub them to clean any dirt. Cut into chunks and place in a pan of slightly salted water and bring to the boil. Check if they're ready the same way as the carrots.
When your roots are ready, drain and leave for a couple of minutes so the steam can dry them.🥕
Now get your masher out! 😆
Put them all back in one large pan or bowl and mash, and mash until all smashed together. You can use a stick blender ...but be careful as it can go to a puree rather than mash.
🌱 For your vegan root mash, add in 2 tablespoons of a non dairy milk such as almond milk.
(If you’re not vegan you can add in a good knob of...butter as well as milk 😋)
Season with sea salt and black pepper and a little nutmeg if you like.
Place a good scoop of root mash on the plate, put your 🥧 pie on top and tuck in!
