About this recipe:I love pies (my favourite meal is pie and mash!) but I don't like the fat content of the pastry so I came up with this simple but very delicious idea. Use as you would any ordinary pastry or for pasties. All measurements are approximate. If you don't like the hassle of peeling the squash, you can split it in half, take out the seeds and roast it until it's soft (about 30 - 45 minutes).
225g (8 oz) mashed, cooked butternut squash
375g (13 oz) plain flour

Place the flour, egg and squash into the container of a food processor.
Pulse until mixed into a doughy ball. You may need to add a little extra flour. Divide into two equal parts.
Awesome recipe, but didn't know how long to cook the pastry! Followed another recipe which was 20 minutes at 220 degrees celcius and then 15 minutes at 180 degrees celcius, which made the pastry a bit hard. Will experiment, as though the pastry was nice and a healthy alternative! - 24 Feb 2010
