How To Make A Chestnut, Mushroom & Shallot Pie:

Serves 4

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 55 minutes – 1hour

You’ll Need:

  • 200g cooked chestnuts (such as Merchant Gourmet vacuum packed)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 200ml red wine
  • 300ml vegetable stock
  • 25g butter
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 12 shallots, peeled & left whole
  • 250g chestnut mushrooms, cut into quarters
  • 2 tbsp Beurre Manie (1 tbsp flour mixed to a paste with 1 tbsp softened butter)
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 225g puff pastry

How To Make:

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas 6.

2. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the olive oil to stop it burning and fry the onions until slightly browned, about 5 minutes.

3. Add the mushrooms, bay leaves and rosemary and cook for a further 4-5 minutes.

4. Add the chestnuts, red wine and vegetable stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20-30 minutes until the onions are soft.

5. Add the beurre manie, stirring constantly until is dissolves, and cook for a further 5 minutes until the sauce is thickened.

6. Stir in the mustard and flat leaf parsley and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Spoon the mixture into a pie dish.

7. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface and place on top of filling, crimping the edges to seal the pie. Cut a cross in the top of the pastry to let the steam out during cooking.

8. Bake for about 20 minutes until golden. Serve immediately.
