Preheat your oven to 200C and oil a baking tray.
Add your onion, garlic and carrot to a food processor and blend until it is finely diced.
Heat a teaspoon of oil in a fry pan over a medium heat.
Add your finely diced mixture to the fry pan and cool until the onion starts to brown and become soft.
Mix in the rosemary and thyme to the fry pan.
Blend your mushrooms and walnuts in a food processor until it is finely diced.
Add your mushroom mixture to the fry pan and cook until the water from the mushrooms is drawn out.
Dice up your sweet potatoes and then boil until soft.
Stir in your tamari, lemon, salt and pepper to the fry pan and cook for a further two minutes.
Pour your mixture into a large mixing bowl. Taste it and adjust the seasonings to your taste.
Add your sweet potatoes and flax egg to the mixing bowl and then mash together with a potato masher.
Assemble your loaf by rolling out your pastry and mould your mixture in the middle of the pastry into a log.
Fold the pastry over your mixture until it is completely covered and then press down onto the edges to seal the mixture. Trim the excess pastry of the log (You can use the trimmings for decoration.)
Brush your log with oat milk.
Place your log onto an oil baking tray and place in the oven for 40 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and your kitchen smells delicious.
Remove from the oven and enjoy!!
