Ingredients
  1. 1.5 litres unsweetened soy milk
  2. 160 grams cake flour
  3. 150 milliliters oil
  4. 10 grams corn flour
  5. 2 grams nutmeg
  6. 1 gram cayenne pepper
  7. 1 teaspoon salt
  8. 40 milliliters lemon juice
  9. 10 grams vegetable stock powder
  10. 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
  11. 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  12. 500 grams mushrooms, sliced
  13. 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  14. 2 boxes Fry's Chicken-style strips
  15. Oil for frying
  16. 1 can white asparagus
  17. 20 grams fresh parsley, chopped
  18. 1 roll (400 grams) puff pastry
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Let the puff pastry defront while you make the filling ingredients.
  3. To make the white sauce, blend (or whisk) together 1/2 liters of unsweetened soy milk, flour, corn flour and oil in the processor.
  4. Place in a pot and whisk until it becomes thick and creamy. Add nutmeg and cayenne pepper and 1 teaspoon of salt. Slowly add the rest of the milk while whisking until you have a thick and creamy white sauce. Add lemon juice and stir.
  5. Dissolve the vegetable stock powder in a little bit of water and add to white sauce, continue to stir until cooked through, then switch off the heat.
  6. In a pan, fry the chopped onions and green pepper in oil for 2 minutes. Add to white sauce.
  7. In the same pan, fry mushrooms in oil with garlic and sprinkle of salt. Then add to white sauce.
  8. In the same pan, fry the Chicken-style strips in oil. Make sure to fry the strips separately and not with the other veg to ensure they become crispy. If the strips are still frozen, add them to the pan without oil first to cook off the water, so that the oil and water don’t mix. Once crispy, take the strips off the heat and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cut the pieces in bite-size pieces, and add to white sauce.
  9. Cut asparagus pieces into 2cm strips. If already cut, add as is. Add the asparagus with its liquid, and the fresh parsley to the sauce and stir.
  10. Turn the heat up again and stir through all the filling ingredients.
  11. Test the sauce: it should be thick and creamy and move around slowly when you tilt the pan. If you feel the sauce is too thin, dissolve a tablespoon of corn flour in water and add to the sauce, put the pan on the heat again and mix the corn flour until cooked through. If you feel the mixture is too thick, however, put the pan on the heat again and add a little bit of soy milk gradually until it reaches the right consistency.
  12. When your sauce is ready and mixed through with all the ingredients, place mixture into a deep serving dish.
  13. Roll out defrosted puff pastry and place over mixture. If the pastry overlaps a bit, fold it back onto the pastry to make a thicker crust. Brush a bit of oil over the surface.
  14. Bake in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius until the pie is golden brown.
