Vegan Vegetable Samosa Pies

I have exciting news, the lovely folks at Pampas pastry actually like my puff pastry Pizza recipe so much that I won a Sunbeam Traditional Pie Maker. This just got delivered the past week and of course, I’ve been brimming with all kinds of ideas. My first set of pies went off like hot pies…. or, was that supposed to be hot cakes?! I used a simple Vegetable Samosa filling and they worked out fabulously. The good news is that I also found a Pampas pastry with lesser fat that is perfect for this recipe. Here are a few pictures of my pretty pies and the new pie maker!

Instructions
  1. Thaw the puff pastry in the pack.
  2. Microwave the Green Peas and diced carrot for 3 minutes in a bowl.
  3. In a mixing bowl, tip the boiled potatoes, carrots, peas, coriander, spices and salt. Mix well till the mixture comes together as a lumpy mass.
  4. Cut out 2 rounds of pastry, a larger one for the base and a smaller one for the top. (My pie maker comes with a pastry cutter helpfully, taking out all the guess work).
  5. Layer the larger pastry circle on the bottom of the pie maker carefully and add 2 heaped tablespoons of the vegetable filling.
  6. Cover with the smaller pastry circle on the top and close the pie maker.
  7. Turn on the pie maker and set to desired crust colour and crispness.
  8. These pies took approximately 12 minutes to cook even though I hadn't preheated the pie maker. The pies were a beautiful golden brown around the 15 minute mark.
  9. Carefully remove from the pie maker and cool a few minutes before serving.
Notes
  1. I used vegan, pre-rolled reduced fat puff pastry sheets for a quick snack.
