    Cook’s tip For a meat-free version of this recipe, simply use more mushrooms (perhaps a mixture of varieties, to add texture and interest) and a can of vegetarian mushroom soup in place of the chicken. Add a little grated Cheddar or parmesan (or vegetarian alternatives) to the crouton topping too, if you want to add some extra protein.
