Meatless Monday: Mushroom and chestnut pie with white bean mash

Vegan Recipe

Great for a Christmas Eve supper.  The white bean mash adds protein to the meal.  Did you know that, unlike other nuts, chestnuts are low calorie.  This is because they are lower in fat.  They provide fibre and B vitamins which calm the nervous system as well as iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and zinc.
