About

The dorm where I used to stay in varsity used to serve this quite regularly as a vegetarian option and this is my approximation of it. It's very straightforward and surprisingly tasty for it's simplicity. Perfect as a starter and easily assembled beforehand, leaving you to just quickly pop it in the oven to warm up again before serving. Your guests are sure to be impressed.
