Ingredients

  • 1 onion, cut into wedges
  • 50g small broccoli florets
  • 1 each red and yellow peppers, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 2 courgettes, thickly sliced
  • 2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 200g reduced-fat houmous
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 375g pack ready-rolled puff pastry
  • 2 small sweet potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 egg yolk mixed with 1 tbsp milk, for glazing

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7. Mix the onion, broccoli, peppers and courgettes in a roasting tin, tossing well with the cumin seeds and the oil. Roast for 30 minutes.
  2. Remove and mix in the houmous, lemon zest and coriander. Turn the oven down to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Cut the pastry in half to make 2 rectangles. Transfer 1 piece to a lined baking sheet and arrange the sweet potato slices in slightly overlapping layers to cover the pastry, leaving a 2cm border. Pile the roasted veg on top of the potatoes and brush the border with the egg glaze.
  3. Roll the remaining pastry out a little thinner. Drape over the filling, press the pastry edges together to seal and trim away any excess pastry. Egg wash the top and cut 3 diagonal slits in the pastry.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the pastry is golden brown and puffed up. Serve with a dressed mixed salad.

  1. This is a fab veggie pie and we are meat eaters, easy to make, wonderfully tasty and not dry. The houmous takes this to an interesting level. Making again, thank you.

  2. I love this recipe because it is the tastiest vegetarian dish I’ve ever tried, but is really cheap and easy to make. It’s such a crowd-pleaser!

    1. Hi Robyn,
      Yes you use all 375g of pastry, you should roll it out and then cut it into two rectangles.
      Hope that helps
