While Heston Blumenthal fannys about trying to make a bacon flavoured stegosaurus out of yogurt and breadsticks the rest of us have more basic food based challenges. Like feeding toddlers – or even harder – getting my Dad to eat a vegetarian dish without him making a joke about it lacking a bit of sausage. ( I’d take the bacon dinosaur over either of these anyday)
I was vegetarian for 19 years and this is one of the few dishes my Dad would happily eat.
So if you’re looking for a tasty vegetarian dish that will stop a gruff 65 year old Yorkshireman from making crap jokes this is the pie for you.
