Set aside and keep warm. Tip: use Native Forest coconut milk for the milk product when making the mashed potatoes.⁠⠀ Heat the teaspoon of oil in a large pan over medium heat and add the onion, carrot, celery, and a pinch of salt. Cook for 8-10 minutes, or until the carrots are tender.⁠⠀ Add the garlic and stir in, then add the vegan chicken (if using frozen, pre-cook), walnuts, cranberries, thyme, sage, salt, and pepper. Cook for 1 minute.⁠⠀ Pour in the prepared gravy and the coconut milk. Taste and adjust seasoning. Add the peas and transfer to a baking dish (or bake in pan if it’s oven-safe like a cast iron)⁠⠀ Top with the prepared mashed potatoes and use a fork to make grooves across the potatoes. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the top is crispy and browned and the filling is bubbling and thickened at the edges. Optional: drizzle with a little olive oil before baking for extra browning.
