Nice & easy vegetarian Cornish Pasties that my little boy loves!

Another of Charlie's favourites, and this is a recipe that I got right. They turned out beautifully and they are so, so easy to make - no scales required!

2 cups plain flour
1 cup butter
1 cup vegetable fat (I used Stork - it worked)
1 (or 2) onions
1 cup of grated carrot
3 cups of potato chunks
1 cup cold water
1 cup milk
300g Quorn/soya mince
3 veg stock cubes
1 tin of sweet corn (wasn't in the mood to pay 3 quid for a fresh cob!)

  • Fill a cup of grated carrot
  • Peal & chop potatoes into 3 cups. Optional potato shapes! :)
  • Boil potatoes until they slide off the fork & mash with milk & butter.
  • Fry sweet corn, onion, carrot & mince - add one jug of veg stock gravy to the pan.
  • Mix flour & fats together until breadcrumb consistency - add milk and water until it forms a sticky dough.
  • Do lots and lots and lots and lots of kneading - adding flour generously!

  • Roll out the dough - really important that it's a small, thick circle so it won't tear.
  • Dollop in your mixture (Or 'elegantly place' if you want)
  • Close up the sides & squish together
  • Glaze with a mixture of melted butter &  milk
  • Bake in the oven 10 mins gas mark 7 & then 20 mins gas mark 4
Nice one mammy! :)
