1 4-ounce can mushroom pieces
3-4 tablespoons cold-pressed oil

1 double pastry crust recipe for pie, should be enough to roll out in numerous 4”-4 ½” circles
Sauté first six ingredients (oil, garlic, onion, pepper, mushrooms, vege-burger crumbs). Mushrooms may be sautéed ahead as they are better a bit crisp.
Add rest of ingredients to sautéed mix (olives, tomato paste, rice, peas, carrots, seasonings) and mix well.
Put about 1 rounded tablespoon of mixture in a rolled out (4”- 4 1/2”) circle of pastry crust.
Fold crust over (in half) and seal with a fork along the edge.
Gently shape into a half moon and place on an oiled baking sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
