Family Pies

Vegetable Curry Pie

Recipe / Adam Guthrie

Clive of India curry powder is one of my favourite curry powders when it comes to making pies. When the spices combine with the puff pastry, it’s incredibly moreish. I also love this curry mixture without pastry, in a bowl with brown basmati rice.

Makes: 12 pies

1 onion, finely diced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tbsp Clive of India curry powder
500mL wholefood coconut milk (soak ½ cup of coconut flakes in 2 cups water overnight then blend until smooth)
500mL vegetable stock
500g mixed frozen veg such as peas, corn & carrots
2 cups broccoli florets
300g pumpkin, chopped into bite-sized pieces
8 button mushrooms, cut into quarters
1 zucchini, diced small
4 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
2 tbsp coconut sugar
½ cup wholemeal flour mixed with water to form slurry
6 sheets vegan pampas puff pastry
¼ cup soy milk

Preheat oven to 180°C.

Heat pot over high heat, add onion and dry sauté (no oil) for few mins. Add garlic, curry powder, coconut milk, stock, frozen and fresh veg, soy sauce and sugar. Mix well. Add flour slurry and constantly stir until mixture boils. Lower heat and simmer for 5 mins.

Line 2 large 6-hole muffin tins with puff pastry, fill each with curry mix. Place puff pastry lid on top. Brush each top with soy milk.

Place in oven and bake for 20 mins or until pastry is cooked and golden brown. Remove pies from oven and muffin trays and place on cake rack to slightly cool. Serve.

Fig, Hazelnut & Goat’s Cheese Tart

Recipe / Lee Holmes

This tart is the perfect bring-along if you’re invited to dinner and want to contribute a dessert with some wow factor. The roasted crunchy hazelnuts intermingle beautifully with the soft sweetness of roasted figs and a tangy edge of creamy goat’s cheese. Figs are also considered an aphrodisiac.

The roasted crunchiness of the hazelnuts combined with the soft sweetness of figs makes this a delight for your palate.
