Veggie Pasties (Dairy free / Vegan)

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend!

For the first time in ages, we had a weekend of glorious sunshine here in Bath. This gave us the perfect opportunity to get outside and do some gardening.  Lil’ L helped me tackle the weeds, while M took on the monster challenge of mowing the lawn (which looked more like a jungle after all the rain we’ve had recently).

Since they’d worked so hard, I thought I’d make the boys some veggie pasties for lunch.  While I was making them, I took a few pics and jotted down the recipe so I could share it with you.

I love to use a selection of colourful veggies in the pasties, but you can basically choose whatever veggies you like.  Always include a little onion though, as this helps add flavour.

Until this weekend, I’d always given M the task of rolling out, cutting and folding the pastry as I was convinced that I wouldn’t be able to make them neat enough.

It turns out, it isn’t hard at all!  And if I can do it, you definitely can!

In fact, I actually really enjoyed pastie making this weekend, though I did combine it with some loud dance music and a boogie round the kitchen.  Anyone else like to boogie in the kitchen?  I find it makes prep & washing up much more fun and far less of a chore.

*Recipe updated June 2017 to bring it in line with the recipe published in the Bit of the Good Stuff cookbook*

With the weeding and mowing finished, Lil’ L couldn’t wait to tuck into his warm pastie.

I sneakily took some pics before he had time to spot me and pull a funny face 😉

Looks like he’s really enjoying it 🙂

Uh oh I’ve been spotted!

Time to go!

Have a wonderful week everyone.  I hope the sun shines wherever you are!

  1. Oh my goodness these look absolutely delicious (as you can tell by the look on Lil’ L’s face). I am sure I could get a couple of the members of my household to eat these…such beautiful colors for all of the items you tucked in 🙂

    1. We’re a bit obsessed with these pasties at the moment! I’m looking forward to trying out different flavours. Maybe Indian or Mexican pasties next?

  2. these pasties look incredible! i am not a big pastie fan normally but definitely looooove homemade ones. they also seem so easy to make, i gotta give it a try! I am sure my boyfriend would love them!

  3. These look incredible and I have all the ingredients so this is what we are having for tonights dinner – E is not keen on pastry but loving her vegetables at the moment so I’m hopeful.

    1. Thanks Becca 🙂
      I used to be put off making pasties as the thought of making pastry scared me! It turns out that it’s no way near as difficult as I thought it’d be!

  4. Thank you for this recipe, I’ve never had much luck with pastry but I made these for my mum and dad yesterday and they were a great success! Also, much quicker and easier to make than expected. 🙂

  5. hi dear Si Star,

    just made it! yummy!!!

    i substituted the margarine for virgin cococut oil for health and taste benefits…
    added more veggies and bit more mustard and broth powder and made it into a pie. great! i can imagine instead of the mustard, using vegan cheese…

    yes i boogie in the kitchen and sing AUM ‘s and talk to the food, admiring and honoring them, pray before eating them as science has now proven that praying for food enhances the quality!


    1. That’s such a good idea using virgin coconut oil instead of margarine. I’m definitely going to give that a try next time I make these pasties.
      I love that you turned it into a pie too! 😀
      I love the idea that praying for food enhances its quality. I do always mentally give thanks to all that have been involved in putting the food on my table, then offer the first portion to the Buddhas. This practice always makes the food taster nicer for sure 😉
