Creamy Vegan Chicken Mash Pie

Meat free chicken pieces and vegetables, in a creamy parsley & sage sauce, topped with mashed potato. This hearty pie is tasty and easy to make, it bakes in the air fryer for 15 minutes or the oven for 25 minutes. I chose to use Dopsu No Chicken Pieces for this recipe, they’re available from most supermarkets, I usually buy them from Tesco for £2

Yield; Four servings Cook time; 45 minutes if using an air fryer, 55 minutes if using an oven

You’ll need;

  1. One tablespoon of plant based butter or oil
  2. One small brown onion, finely diced
  3. One carrot, peeled and finely diced
  4. Two cloves of garlic, minced
  5. 100g white mushrooms, sliced
  6. 280g mock chicken, I used Dopsu No Chicken Pieces
  7. 200ml plant based cream, I used a blended mix of 100ml plant milk and 100g firm tofu, other plant based cream will work too
  8. One quarter of a teaspoon of both sage and parsley
  9. Four medium sized baking potatoes, peeled and diced
  10. 50ml plant based milk
  11. One teaspoon of dijon mustard


  • Start by heating the butter/oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, once it’s warmed up, add in the onion and carrot. Sprinkle over a pinch of salt and allow the vegetables to soften for five minutes
  • Next, add the garlic, give it a couple of minutes to become fragrant and then add the mushrooms. Give the mushrooms five minutes to cook
  • Then add in the mock chicken and give it ten minutes to heat through, pop a lid on the frying pan to keep the mock chicken pieces moist. While you’re waiting, bring a pan of water to a boil, and boil the diced potato until it’s tender
  • Next add the cream, sage and parsley to the mock chicken and vegetables, then season to taste with salt and black pepper. Give the cream two or three minutes to heat up. While you’re waiting, drain and mash the potato, add the milk and mustard to the mash and season with salt and pepper
  • Finally spoon the mock chicken mixture into the bottom of a dish, I use a 7 inch cake tin. Then top it with the mashed potato. Bake the pie for 15 minutes at 200°C in the air fryer, or in the oven at 200°C/180°C fan assisted for 25 minutes, or until it’s golden brown on top

Once it’s golden brown on top it’s ready to serve with any vegetables you like, I went with a mixture of peas and sweetcorn
