Vegan Australian Meat Pie


A meat pie is a handheld savory pie containing diced or minced meat with onions and sometimes mushrooms and cheese. It is often eaten as a takeaway food snack. It is an iconic dish in Australia and New Zealand. When I visited family in Australia years back I was already Vegan so I have not actually tried one. But I did see and smell them. So when I returned home I knew I had to give it a try. And glad I did. They are absolutely delicious. And this recipe has been Australian approved.


(Makes roughly 12 mini pies. Depends on the size of your muffin pan)
