I’ve been looking for ways to thicken sauces without flour or starch.  This recipe uses onions and cauliflower to make a thick sauce to hold the filling for my pie – and I get a bonus serve of vegetables too!  Chicken, peas and carrots are some of my favourite pie fillings and I’ve used a sweet potato mash as the topping.
