I found this recipe while browsing food blogs just before my exams. I believe it is called procrastination:-) The idea of a vegetarian pie is very appealing, even though I love meat, meat pies are often too heavy for my liking and I’ll end up feeling guilty and full after a couple of bites (Ok so maybe after a couple of pies:-). So I’ve decided to give this a go and use up all the vegetables in the fridge.
- 450 g/16 Oz White Flour
- 1 1/4 fast acting Yeast
- 1 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 Egg, beaten
- 2 tbsp runny Honey
- 50 ml light Olive Oil
- 260 ml warm Water
- 1 small Potato, peeled and cubed
- 2 large Onions, peeled and cut into chunks
- 1 Green Pepper, cut into chunks
- 2 Carrots, peeled and cubes
- 2 large Tomatoes, cut into chunks
- 100 g/3.5 Oz Mushrooms, cut into chunks
- 3 Garlic cloves, peeled and chopped finely
- A handful of peas
- 70g/2.5 Oz Cheddar, grated
- 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 tsp chopped Basil
- 1/2 tsp Paprika
- Salt and Pepper
Step By Step Instructions
Place all the vegetables in a baking dish, add the basil, paprika and seasoning. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and mix well. Cook in the oven at 200 C/Gas Mark 6/ 390 F for 20 minutes.
To make the crust: In a large bowl, mix the flour with salt, yeast, oil, honey and egg and mix well.
Add the warm water gradually to flour mixture while mixing until a smooth bread dough is formed. Knead the dough for 5-7 minutes.
Divide the dough into two equal halves. Roll one half into a 25 cm circle. Place the roasted vegetables on top of the rolled dough, leaving 2 cm off the edges. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top of the vegetables.
Roll the other half into another circle and place on top of the vegetables and seal the edges.
Cover the pie with a tea towel and leave for 20 minutes.
Brush the pie with olive oil and bake in the oven at 200 C/ Gas Mark 6/ 390 F for 30 minutes.
Serve hot or cold.
