Mushroom-Banana Blossom Pie

So this is supposed to be the vegan version of a fish pie. I've never had, nor been near, a fish pie so I have no idea what it's supposed to taste like. But, I really liked this. I love a pot pie, so it's really not all that shocking.

Super bad photo, but the lighting in my kitchen is terrible, and I really hate moving casserole dishes outside. So, deal with it :)

  • Converted measurements to U.S. standard (rounded numbers up and down here and there)

  • Replaced leek with green onion

  • Used coconut aminos instead of fish sauce

  • Replaced chives with green onion



1 tbsp vegetable oil

3 green onions, white part only, finely sliced

3 cloves garlic minced

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1 can #BananaBlossoms, drained well

5 oz shiitake #mushrooms, roughly chopped

1 tsp lemon juice

1 sheet of nori, finely shredded

2 tbsp coconut aminos

1/4 cup dry white wine

Vegan white sauce (use the entire yield from the linked recipe)

3 tbsp nutritional yeast

4 sprigs dill roughly chopped

3/4 cup frozen #peas

S&P, to taste

The Mash

2 lbs potatoes peeled, and roughly chopped

3 tbsp nutritional yeast

A splash almond milk

1/2 tsp dijon mustard

2 tbsp green onion, finely diced

S&P, to taste



In a large saucepan, fry the green onions and garlic over a medium heat until the leeks and softened and the garlic is fragrant

Add in the smoked paprika, and stir to coat the vegetables in it.

With you hands, separate out the individual slices of banana blossom. Add them to the pan, also with the shredded shiitake mushrooms, lemon juice, shredded nori, coconut aminos, and wine.

Continue to fry until the mushrooms start to shrink and glisten, about 5 minutes.

Pour in white sauce, and stir in the nutritional yeast, dill and frozen peas. Let this cook until it has thickened slightly, about 5 minutes, then season to taste with salt and pepper


Boil the potatoes until fork-tender then drain

Add the nutritional yeast, a splash of vegan milk, the and the dijon. Mash, adding more milk if necessary, until you get a smooth mash

Stir in the green onion and season with salt and pepper


Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Pour filling in a baking dish. I used a small circular one (9in in diameter, I think)

Spoon the mash over your filling and I like to make a pattern with a spoon/fork so you get edges which can crisp up in the oven

Pop it into the oven for 25-30 min, or until golden and bubbling.
