1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 package puff pastry (suitable for vegans)

1. Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F

2. Heat oil in pan. Fry onion and celery for 5 minutes or until soft.

4. Add soy sauce and cook for a further minute before removing pan from heat.

5. Sprinkle flour onto work surface and roll out pastry into 2 rectangles (each approx. 4 inches (10cm) high x 12 inches (30cm) wide). Trim edges with a knife for straight sides.

6. Spoon 1/2 the mushroom mixture into the bottom half of the first pastry rectangle, leaving a 3/4″ gap from the side and bottom edges.


7. Brush a little almond milk along the edges.

8. Fold the top half of the pastry over to meet the bottom edges and press down along the edges with your fingers.
