  3. Mix your left-over vegetables with the Macphie Plant-based White Sauce, 150g of the grated cheese and thyme. Season with salt and black pepper.

  4. To make the crumble top, blitz 75g plant-based cheese, beetroot, flour and salt and pepper together in a food processer until you have a loose soil like texture.

  5. Put the veg mix into your lined pastry tin, press down firmly with a spoon to get right into the corners and smooth the top leaving a 2cm gap for your topping. Fill the rest of the pie with the beetroot crumble mix and bake in the oven for about 1hr until fully cooked.
