Puff pastry vegetable 'samosa'

OK, it’s not really a samosa recipe as it’s not fried and it ‘s puff pastry! But the filling is the same and it’s just as, if not more, delicious. I’m not going to give exact amounts, just make sure you make enough – if there’s leftover filling you can eat it as a curry with a naan bread!

 

This recipe is so simple but really special.

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet of ready rolled puff pastry
  • Couple of large potatoes, washed and diced
  • a few big carrots, peeled and diced
  • a big onion, peeled and diced
  • any other veg you’d like to put in it as long as not soggy ones like courgette. I think I added edamame beans and aubergine to this.
  • a few glugs of extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt
  • course-ground black pepper
  • a good huge shake of turmeric powder
  • a tablespoon or a bit more of curry powder
  • a heaped teaspoon of garam masala
  • a lot of frozen peas
  • a beaten egg

Instructions

Heat the oven to about 190º.

Now just mix the carrots, potatoes and onions and with olive oil, salt, curry powder, turmeric and garam masala. Then bake in the oven in a heavy oven dish with a lid on, ’til cooked – takes about 25-30 mins but stir half way through – then stir in LOTS of frozen peas (don’t put the peas in at the start or they’ll be annihilated and lose their colour).

Now get yr sheet of puff and place a thick row of the filling along one side (should take up ⅓-½ of the pastry width, leaving a margin. Egg wash the sides and crimp together. Egg wash the top and bake it. Voila!

P.S. I usually mix the egg with a splash of milk before I do the top.

Nutrition Info

Potatoes

Potatoes are wrongly slated by nutrition fashionistas. They have plenty going for them, as well as being incredibly delicious!

Their biggest claim to fame is their vitamin B6, which is used throughout the body for cell formation, and that’s a pretty big task. B6 is also a key player in nerve and brain function, as well as gene expression. Spuds are also pretty rich in vitamin C, which isn’t only good for immunity but plays a strong part in forming and maintaining healthy connective tissue and skin.

Good honest nutrition

Cut my pie into four pieces, I don’t think I could eat eight.
