Taco Pie

Taco Pie with Quorn

Taco Pie is one of my favourite dishes, and all my non-vegetarian friends that have tasted it really like it. The pie is delicous, so give it a try! You won’t be dissapointed. If you don’t want to use quorn, you can use ground beef instead (500 grams, and only one bag of Taco spice and 100 milliliter water as meat doesn’t absorb as much liquid/spices as quorn).

Taco Pie

Quorn Filling:
300 gram quorn grounds
1,5 bag of Taco spice
200 milliliter water
powder cayenne pepper
1 onion
2-3 garlic cloves

Pie Crust:
350 milliliter white flour
a pinch of salt
125 gram butter
3 tbsp cold water

White Filling:
4 tbsp mayonaise
200 milliliter crème fraiche
250 milliliter grated cheese
1 finely chopped fresh red chili (just be careful so you don’t take a really hot one. Adjust the amount depending on how hot it is).

2 chopped tomatoes

Combine the butter with the flour and the salt in a food processor (or by hand). Add the water so the mixture becomes a dough.

Divide the dough in a baking tin making a crust. Put the tin in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Bake the crust in 200 degrees C for about 12 minutes until golden.

Do the quorn filling by frying the onion and garlic in a frying pan. Add the quorn, water, taco spices and pepper. Let simmer for 5 minutes. Fill the crust with the quorn filling.

Cover the quorn filling with the chopped tomatoes.

Combine the mayonaise with the cheese, chili pepper and crème fraiche.

Cover the tomatoes with the white sauce.

Bake in oven for about 20 minutes in 225 degrees C, until the pie is golden brown. Serve the pie with a sallad.

    You could make a cornmeal crust with that, for a variation. Looks good!

    Though, I know myself. Cilantro would have to get scattered over the top….

    You could also add cornmeal to the crust for extra texture.

    And I know I would have to add cilantro on the top after it was baked. I love cilantro!

    It looks really good!
