  3. Add in herbs, salt & pepper, lemon juice, cashew cream and frozen veggies. Stir until mixture begins to bubble. 
  4. Roll out puff pastry dough, sprinkling with flour as needed, and cut into rounds 1-2” larger than your serving oven proof bowls. 
  5. Stir in crispy, chopped nuggets to filling mixture. 
  6. Add about 1 cup of filling to each bowl. (Use 8-10oz ramekins).
  7. Top with puff pastry and cut a slit in the top center so steam can escape.
  8. Press pastry around the edges to the bowl and brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with flaked salt and ground pepper.
  9. Bake pies for 20 minutes until the top is golden brown. 

 NOTE: You can make a family style by placing all filling into a 9” baking dish and top with pastry.
