Preparation

Filling

  1. In a food processor, finely chop the mushrooms. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  2. Coarsely chop the chickpeas in the food processor. Set aside.
  3. In a saucepan over medium heat, soften the onions, leek and garlic in the oil. Add the mushrooms and sauté for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the wine, mustard and spices. Simmer until the wine has evaporated. Add the chickpeas and mix well. Adjust the seasoning. Set aside.
  4. With the rack in the bottom position, preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).

Pastry

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a measuring cup, combine the water and honey. Add the oil. Pour over the dry ingredients and stir with a fork until the flour is just moistened. Shape the dough into 2 discs about 2.5 cm (1 inch) thick.
  3. Roll out each disc between 2 sheets of parchment paper. Line a 23-cm (9-inch) pie plate with one pastry round. Spread the filling evenly in the pie shell. Cut a few slits in the second pastry round, then cover the filling. Seal tightly by crimping the edges of the pastry using a fork or your fingers. Brush with milk.
  4. Bake for about 55 minutes.
  5. Serve with Beet and Cranberry Chutney.

  1. Made this for the first time and it was a hit. The vegetarians and non-vegs both liked it. I did follow the advice of others and use a short crust though because I didn't feel like attempting a tricky pastry. I added some extra kick with hot chili flakes and some paprika because we like our food with some heat.

  2. Made this today as a trial run for Christmas. Any idea whether it freezes well either before or after baking?

  3. I made this tourtière last Christmas because my friend's son is vegetarian. We all loved it even the daughter-in-law who hates mushrooms. I used a large portobella and measured up the white to make up the pound instead of all white. No cloves though, I used allspice instead and a short crust. Eaten with or without the cranberry beet chutney it's delicious. This year, I'll try making mini tarts with a glaze made out of the chutney.

  4. This tourtière is part of Christmas every year for us! The pastry is tricky though, and though vegan, does not seem as good as a short crust with lard and butter!

  5. Simple to make, and SO delicious! Very flavorful. Highly recommend - will definitely make again.
