Vegetable and hummus pie

Faggots





Savory vegetarian pie recipes are always popular and this version is one we made in my cookery group. This is not only a vegetarian recipe but just happens to be a vegan vegetable pie too. 

I found the recipe in Delicious, but have changed it a bit. Very flexible and very delicious, doesn’t take very long and is vegan too for those that want to know. I’ve checked and the Jus-Rol pastry specifically says that it is suitable for vegans, other brands don’t specify either way. If you don’t want vegan, get a good buttery puff pastry. Read the label as it often has palm oil in.

This is my version of a vegetable puff pastry pie, I’ve changed the vegetables around a bit, and made the hummus, and this resulted in the price halving.

Verdict for the vegetable and puff pastry pie

A wonderful pie, quick and easy to make. A great option for any vegetarian or vegan visitors if you are not either of those yourself. Can be made and kept in the freezer, all there for a lovely home made ready meal

Although the full pie looked great, I think I would make individual ones next time. 

 

Variations for the vegetable and puff pastry pie

Having made this, I would recommend chopping the veg up really quite small and sautéing them until cooked through. They don’t really cook all that much more when in the pie.

Any kind of hummus could be used, or any bean paté. Have a look at this post for lots of ideas for bean pâtés made with baked beans that have been rinsed.

Other vegetables that can be used include mushrooms, well cooked to get rid of the water; any combination of things that would go together, so say, carrot, onion and spinach; mushroom, chestnut and walnut; swede, turnip and mushroom. Anything that you think would taste good, about 400g in total.

  • Replace the swede with white or sweet potato, carrot, turnip or celeriac. Or a combination.
  • Add some cumin, curry powder, tandoori spice, garam masala, ground coriander or any other spice.
  • Add some chopped herbs, any fresh herbs that you have available.
  • Add chilli if you want it.
  • Change the hummus to rinsed baked beans, any flavour hummus, very soft butter beans, green or brown lentils, or whole chickpeas.

Whatever you use, make sure it is all seasoned very well. Lots of salt and pepper, and maybe some of that Aleppo pepper I’ve been using recently, it’s lovely!
