Chestnut Shallot and Mushroom Pie HERO

Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas 6.

Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the olive oil to stop it burning and fry the onions until slightly browned, about 5 minutes.

Add the mushrooms, bay leaves and rosemary and cook for a further 4-5 minutes. Add the chestnuts, red wine and vegetable stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20-30 minutes until the onions are soft.

For the Beurre Manie mix 1tbsp flour with 1tbsp softened butter until it forms a paste. Add 2tbsp of Beurre Manie, stirring constantly until is dissolves, and cook for a further 5 minutes until the sauce is thickened.

Stir in the mustard and flat leaf parsley and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Spoon the mixture into a pie dish.

Roll out the pastry on a floured surface and place on top of filling, crimping the edges to seal the pie. Cut a cross in the top of the pastry to let the steam out during cooking.

Bake for about 20 minutes until golden. Serve immediately.
