This is a meat-free version of the original. Of course, if you prefer to use ground beef you could, but I think this recipe tastes just as good without it. In fact, some of my meat-eating friends couldn't tell the difference!

  2. Meanwhile, heat some oil in a frying pan and saute the celery, mushrooms, red pepper and spring onions for two minutes.

I really liked this dish. The veggie beef/veggie cheese just don't taste the same as the real thing... so don't let your expectations of this dish get on the wrong track. If you're looking for a good vegan version of comfort food, this is a winner. And super easy!
