Tempeh and Ale Pie

I’ve never actually had steak and ale pie, but wandering through one of the many festivals that happen in downtown London, I saw a vendor selling an assortment of British meat pies and thought I really wanted to make one.  The recipe still needs some tweaks before I’m ready to share it, but just imagine this – succulent cubes of marinated tempeh, potatoes, carrots and peas smothered in a savoury ale-and-Marmite gravy, topped with a fluffy, flaky, buttery crust.  Sound good?  Damn right.

Perhaps the most disgusting photo posted on NVL yet.  It really was delicious, though.

I’m trying to get back into the good habit of making fruit smoothies.  This one had banana, vanilla soy protein powder, soy milk, orange juice and some giant handfuls of wild blackberries my dad picked for us, hence the brilliant colour.

  1. The picture of the pie looks great, but the description takes the cake! My stomach is growling so hard and now I just want to make pie. And I haven't eaten pie since I lived in England!Can't wait to see the recipe,- Isobelle
