2 Tbsp. margarine
1/4 cup soy milk or liquid nondairy creamer
Salt, garlic powder, and pepper, to taste

1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
12 oz. vegan ground beef-style crumbles or cooked lentils
1 1/4 cups vegan gravy of your choice

- Boil the potatoes for 20 minutes, or until tender. Drain and mash with the margarine and soy milk or nondairy creamer. Season with salt and pepper.
- In a medium pan, sauté the onion in the oil until translucent.
- In a medium bowl, mix the cooked onions, vegan beef crumbles or lentils, mushroom gravy, peas and carrots, and spices. Pour into a pie pan. Top the crumble mixture with the potatoes, spreading to the edges.
