    1 onion, diced

    3 stalks of celery, chopped

    2 carrots, sliced

    2 cups mushrooms, sliced

    1 cup corn

    ¼ cup parsley, chopped

    1 tablespoon tomato paste

    1 teaspoon thyme

    1 teaspoon sage

    1 teaspoon pepper

    1 teaspoon salt

    2 cups veggie broth

    1 tablespoon flour

    For the potato topping
    4 potatoes, peeled and chopped

    1 tablespoon vegan butter

    ½ cup soy/nut milk

    1 teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon pepper


    For the carrot cake

    # Preheat oven to 220ºC/425ºF.

    # In a medium-large pot, over medium heat, combine oil, garlic, and onions. Cook for one minute, until onions start to soften.

    # Add celery and carrots, stir until onions are translucent.

    # Add mushrooms, corn, parsley, tomato paste, thyme, sage, salt, and pepper until well mixed.

    # Add veggie stock in half-cup increments, allowing it to come to a simmer before adding more. Add flour, then mix. Continue mixing until the mixture thickens. Once thick, remove from heat and pour into a pie dish.

    # Add potatoes to a large pot and cover with lightly salted water. Set over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Cook until potatoes have softened and are fork-tender. Remove from heat and drain.

    # Mash potatoes then add butter, milk, salt, and pepper.

    # Spoon potato mixture over the top of the veggies in the pie dish, and smooth so that it is evenly spread.

    # Optional: using a butter knife or a long, thin spatula. press into potato surface every inch to create a beautiful, undulating presentation.

    # Bake pie for 20-25 minutes.

    # Allow to cool for five minutes.

    # Enjoy!
