My Veggie Pie

I’m not quite sure what’s happened to summer this year. We’ve had a very wet spring (not that it bothered the puddle jumpers and snail racers of our family) and it looks as though we’re being washed into summer. So, salads are not so much in demand at the moment…that’s why I’ve decided to bake a veggie pie. Comfort food at it’s best.

The Ingredients
(you can really use any veggies you have rolling around your fridge)
1 courgette
1 leek
a branch of cherry tomatoes
1 yellow bell pepper

The Pastry
300g flour
100g butter
1tsp salt
5tbsp water

The Topping
3 eggs (and +1 for brushing the lid of the pie)
150g creme fraiche
salt and pepper
1 bunch of parsley
4tbsp milk

Make the dough. Preheat the oven at 200°C. Chop up the veggies (fry the leek and courgette) and the parsley. Mix up the ingredients for the topping and add the parsley. Use half the pastry for the base (my tin is 26cm in diameter). Put the veggies on the base and pour the topping over it all, then cover it with the rest of the pastry. Brush with an egg and bake for 35-40 minutes.

While it’s in the oven you can pop out for a brisk walk or talk to some snails…

…and when you’ve got wet enough (or the pie is done) you can sit down and enjoy this!

  1. It looks scrummy ! I know what you mean about the weather – and the snails. We’ve had loads of them this year. I missed a fantastic opportunity the other day to capture one about a foot up two large grasses. How it managed to get there I’ll never know.

  2. Your photos are making me hungry! I make a veggie pie usually from whatever is fresh and it’s usually totally consumed! I cheat thought, I buy prepared dough.

  3. You are a girl after my own heart. Everything is perfect. The vegetable pie – so delicious, so beautifully presented. The walk in the country and chatting with snails. Supper by candle light. Living well is the very best. Cheers Virginia

  5. Great looking recipe! Fabulous photos! I have done food photography, and it’s not always easy. Great shots. Of course, if you over cook the pie a little, one can always set it near an open window and let it ‘come back’!

  6. I’ve been wanting to get into savory pies (my sweet tooth keeps holding me back) and this looks delicious! It might have just inspired me to give it a shot.
