Ingredients

Makes: 4 Cornish Pasties

  • 50g vegetable fat
  • 50g margarine
  • 225g plain flour
  • jug of cold water
  • 1 small potato, peeled and grated
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and grated
  • 1 handful sweetcorn
  • 10 green beans
  • 100g minced Quorn®
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • a small amount of milk

Method

Prep:30min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

  1. Set oven to 220 C / Gas 7.
  2. Rub fats into the flour using fingertips, until the mixture resembles fine, dry breadcrumbs. Mix together with enough cold water to form a soft but not sticky dough. Knead dough gently on a lightly floured surface and divide into 4 equal sized pieces.
  3. Roll out each piece of dough into a circle shape, about .5cm in thickness.
  4. Mix together the potato, onion, carrot, sweetcorn, green beans and Quorn mince and crumble the stock cube into the mixture.
  5. Place a small amount of filling onto each pastry circle, using your fingers dampen the edge of the pastry with water and bring the edges together. Seal well.
  6. Place the pasties onto a greased baking tray and glaze with milk. Then with a fork, make little holes into the side of the pasties. This will prevent them from bursting open.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes at 220 C / Gas 7, then reduce the temperature to 180 C / Gas 4 and bake for a further 20 minutes.

Tip

When mixing the water in to form a dough, pour the water in a bit at a time, to make sure he dough doesn't turn out sticky.

Use for leftovers

For the leftover vegetables you could put them into a lasagne.

Substitution

If you are serving it to a non-vegetarian, you may use the same amount of minced chicken, turkey, lamb or pork.

Used different ingredients. Remove Quorn, make Cream Sauce or Cheese Sauce to add protein to complement the vegetables. - 28 May 2011
