A touch of flour and plant-based milk combine to form a velvety sauce that enrobes the vegetables in creamy perfection.

Vegan Leek and mushroom pies


For the filling:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 leeks, thinly sliced
  • 3 cups mushrooms, sliced (use your favorite variety)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup plant-based milk (such as almond, soy, or oat)

For the pastry:

  • Store-bought vegan puff pastry sheets (make sure they’re vegan-friendly)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced leeks and cook until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet and cook until they release their moisture and begin to brown, about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Stir in the minced garlic, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Cook for another 2 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the vegetable broth, soy sauce, and flour until smooth. Pour this mixture into the skillet with the leeks and mushrooms. Stir well to combine.
  6. Gradually pour in the plant-based milk, stirring continuously, until the mixture thickens into a creamy sauce. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
  7. While the filling is cooling, prepare your pastry. Roll out the puff pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface and cut them into circles or squares, depending on your preference and the size of your pie molds.
  8. Line your pie molds with the pastry, making sure there’s some overhang. Spoon the cooled filling into the pastry-lined molds.
  9. If desired, you can cover the pies with another layer of pastry, either as a full crust or as a lattice pattern. Seal the edges by crimping them with a fork.
  10. Place the pies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and crispy.
  11. Once baked, remove the pies from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
