Home Made Veggie Pasties

I have this recipe to share with you today.  It is a regular in our home, mostly for lunch, and occasionally for dinner. 

Yummy Vegetable Pasties

You will need; 
Some Puff Pastry sheets, a variety of veggies, salt/pepper, pinch of mixed herbs or herb of choice, 2 eggs and sesame seeds. (you can add a small amount of mince if you like, but they are tasty without)


First of all take puff pastry out of the freezer and partly thaw the required amount of sheets.  Today I used three. Other days I will use different amounts depending on how many hungry mouths I have to feed. This is my favouite brand of pastry and I stock up when it is on special.

Next I gather my ingredients together.
Go to the pantry and fridge and find some veggies. 
Here I have used potato, onion, garlic, mushrooms, broccoli stems, pumpkin, carrot, zucchini and frozen corn.  

Firstly I chop the potato into very small pieces.

Then peel and chop veggies (except the corn) and add to food processor with some salt and pepper, mixed herbs and one egg. Whiz for a few seconds until veggies are still a little chunky and egg is mixed through.
(I forgot to take a photo of this process, so here is one after I had removed some)

Once this is done, add the chopped potatoes and frozen corn.

Now you are ready to add to the pastry.

Place one sheet of pastry on a chopping board. Have the pastry still a bit firm so it is easier to form into shape. I use a pizza cutter to cut the pastry.

Beat the second egg in a bowl to use for glazing.

Take your pizza cutter and cut pastry sheet into four quarters, and glaze around the edges.

Now add a small amount of veggies to each quarter.

Take two of the corners and pinch together like so.

 Then roll pastry over like this.

And down the sides.
Curl over the ends.

It should look something like this when you are finished.

Place on a baking tray and glaze with egg.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds if you like.

Place in a moderate oven and cook for about 30 - 40 minutes. It may take longer depending upon your oven.
I usually guess by sight.  When they are nicely golden and crisp, they are ready J


Sometimes I get a bit lazy and make one big pasty out of one sheet of pastry, like the one in this photo.

Serve with your favourite sauce or relish. 

Enjoy!!

I am still learning to do tutorials, so if you see an error or have a question regarding this recipe please let me know through the comments or email. 



 Take care and have a lovely day.

  6. When I make one big pastie, I put the filling down the middle and cut diagonal stipes each side and fold them over to make a fake plait- impressive enough for company, but easy and economical.

  7. They look delish Tania. Have not made pasties in ages. Perfect for the cooler weather we are experiencing in Brissy now. On a lunch menu sometime soon methinks.

    Your new blog is very pretty.

  8. Tania, I made something similar when I was visiting my grandchildren and they loved them. The leftovers were frozen for my son-in-laws smoko etc. So easy to make and quite delicious I must say. Your new blog is lovely. I think I told you that but I have a terrible memory :-)

    1. I like how these pasties freeze so well, not that mine get there very often. A great go to meal to prepare ahead of time.

  9. I followed Annabel's link to find you....this is a lovely tutorial. I especially like how you egg wash your edges before filling....makes the process so much quicker! A lovely idea. I'll be visiting you often 😀

  10. Dear Tania,
    I love the name of your blog, too, like Helen said!
    I really like the tutorial too. As I said to you sometimes I cheat with chopped frozen vegies to supplement my own chopping!
    Tutorials on how to cook good old fashioned things are going to be a hit as they are so helpful!
    Lots of love, Annabel.xxx
