Sweet Potato, Red Onion & Feta Pasties

Sweet Potato, Red Onion & Feta Pasties

These pasties are packed with flavour that the whole family will love.

Recipe to make 4 - 6 pasties, depending on size

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1cm cubes

3 whole cloves of garlic, skins left on

2 red onions, diced

1 sprig of rosemary, stalks removed and roughly chopped

2 fresh bay leaves

1 handful of crumbled feta

1 tbsp olive oil

Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper

1 pack of ready made puff pastry

1 egg beaten

 

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark4.

2. Mix the chopped sweet potato, onions, cloves of garlic, herbs, seasoning and 1/2 the olive oil together in a roasting tray and lay in one even layer. Pop the tray in the oven to troast for 45 minutes.

3. Remove the veggies from the oven and allow to cool before squeezing out the garlic from their skins and mixing in the crumbled feta.

4. Dust a clean work surface with plain flour and roll out the pastry.

5. Scoring around a large mug or a little saucer, cut out 4 - 6 (depending on their size) pastry discs.

6. Divide the filling equally into the centre of each circle of pastry then one at a time, brush the edges of the pastry with a little water and fold the disk in half making sure the edges meet. Press the two edges together firmly then crimp the edges with your finger and thumb or with a fork.

7. Once all the pasties are assembled, brush the top and edges with the remaining beaten egg then place on a lined baking tray.

8. Put the tray of pasties in the oven and allow to bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.

We love these served hot or warm with a spicy chutney.

Enjoy!
