This is the best meatless meat pie you'll ever have! Millet and oats are the base, Christmas meat pie spices are the secret! Even non-vegetarians will be fooled! This makes a pretty big pie, it is possible to make two with this much filling. Serve with ketchup, fruit, onion chutney, or anything that means 'Holidays' to you!

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Combine oats, millet, onion, carrot, celery, potato, safflower oil, tamari, allspice, nutmeg, cloves, salt, and black pepper together in a large bowl; mix well.

  • Press 1 pie crust pastry into a 9-inch pie pan. Pour filling into pie crust. Top with second pie crust pastry; pinch edges together. Pierce a few areas of the top crust to allow pie to ventilate during baking. Brush top crust with beaten egg.

  • Bake pie in the preheated oven until crust is golden brown, about 40 minutes.

Great taste! I cut the amount of tamari sauce in half. The allspice nutmeg and cloves provide an unexpected pleasure. I used steel cut oats and Thanks for the recipe!those could be changed for rolled oats. This was too much filling for one 9" pie so next time I will make this a one crust pie in a casserole dish The kinds of vegetables can be varied so I will be making this at other times with different ones. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I used soy sauce instead of tamari (and the old fashioned soy sauce will make it darker as opposed to the Japanese sushi style one). I only had canola oil also. Turned out better than expected. I omitted the egg and it held together quite well! Read More

The combination of the sauce and the spices was really great. It had a depth of tastes that was really pleasing. My anti-vegetarian kid even raved about it. Read More

I sauté the onions beforehand so that my kids will love it. It's an awesome pie recipe. I tweek things here and there but not much. I've substituted lovage fore celery in a pinch reducing the amount of lovage gauged by taste. The second time around yet again no celery on hand and so have substituted a small amount of celery seed just for flavour. I expect it'll be well received again. Read More

Great recipe. Only suggestion is use more water (twice as much) when cooking the oats and barley. The recipe also makes more than necessary for a 9 inch round baking pan so I cooked mine in a rectangular deep dish. You may almost have enough for two pie dishes. Read More
