Hominy Pie

Inspired by Thursday’s Vegan MoFo blog from A Seasonal Vegetable, I made a hearty hominy pie. I adapted the recipe to include some celery and instead of cheese I used parmesan. It worked really well with parmesan. With the smoked paprika, it has a smoky, savoury flavour. We ate it with sausages and the last of the French beans from the garden. If I was Agent Cooper, I would say it was “Damn fine hominy pie – and hot!”

  • 125g plain flourIMG_1760
  • 55g Pure margarine
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2-3 tbsp ice cold water
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and boiled
  • 2 sticks of celery, sliced
  • 120ml soya cream
  • Large pinch or two parsley, chopped
  • 1 tsp Vegetable Bouillon
  • 3-4 tsp Vegan Parmesan (I like Bellissimo)
  • Large pinch fresh black pepper
  • Pinch or two of smoked paprika

Make the pastry by gently rubbing the marg into the flour to form breadcrumbs. Add the salt then stir in the water and mix lightly until it binds together – avoid over-handling it as your pastry will turn into wood when cooked! Grease a flan dish and line with pastry. Blind bake at 180°C for 10 mins. Meanwhile chop the potatoes and fry in olive oil in a large saucepan along with the onion and celery for a few mins until they start to brown. Then add the cream, parsley and mix. Add the Boullion and season to taste then spoon into the pastry case, sprinkle with Parmesan, pepper and smoked paprika then bake for 25 mins at 180°C.
