  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp light miso paste
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast

For the filling:

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Next, prepare your veggies by chopping them accordingly. Put your chopped carrots and potatoes on a baking sheet, season them with a pinch of salt, and spray them with some oil. Take four garlic cloves and throw them onto the pan. Roast them in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. In the meantime, saute the mushrooms in a large pan over medium-high heat. After three to four minutes, season them with salt, then deglaze the pan with a splash of water if needed. Next, add ground beef, corn, peas, and green beans. Cook for three to four minutes or until the veggies are mostly thawed.
