We also love the surprise twist that the pastry gives, thanks to the addition of yummy Parmesan cheese, which helps to create even more flavour. Douse with gravy and dig in!
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 shallots, peeled and thickly sliced
- 175g cooked carrots
- 175g new potatoes, cut into chunks
- 175g lightly boiled or steamed broccoli florets
- 200g cooked, peeled whole chestnuts, roughly chopped
- 175g grated Cheddar cheese
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
- Ground black pepper
- 300g Stork packet
- 450g plain flour
- 55g grated Parmesan cheese
- Beaten egg, to glaze
- 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
- 1 Knorr Onion Gravy Pot
Method1 For the filling, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan, add in the shallots and fry until softened. Add the carrots, potatoes and broccoli and fry, stirring, for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and mix in the chestnuts; set aside to cool.
2 Mix together the Cheddar, egg yolk, yogurt and season with black pepper and set aside. Preheat the oven to 200c/ gas mark 6.
3 To make the crust, rub the Stork into flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the Parmesan and enough cold water to mix to soft dough. Knead lightly on a floured surface until smooth.
4 Roll out half the pastry to a rectangle 30x20cm and lift onto a baking sheet. Spoon over half the vegetable mixture to within 2.5cm/1in of the pastry edges. Top with the cheese and yogurt mixture then the rest of the vegetable mixture.
5 Roll out the remaining pastry, dampen pastry edges and place over filling, pressing to seal the edges and form the pie.
6 Make 3-4 slashes in the top of the pie to allow steam to escape. Brush the pastry with beaten egg and sprinkle with fennel seeds.
7 Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Serve with Knorr gravy, made from a Knorr Gravy Pot.
