Rach Eats Lunch: Cheese & Courgette Pasties

Cheese and courgette pasty recipe

Oh crikey. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I have an empty day ahead of me. Once I've cooked and shot (not literally shot) and eaten today's recipe and cleaned up... I'm kind of officially done for the week. I know, I know... it's Wednesday where you are, so I'm sorry if you feel a bit jealous, but it's Friday where I am, so... it's always Friday somewhere, right? Although it would be a bit strange if it was. I think the universe would crumble and society would be on its' knees. (I think what I've been meaning to say is that it's always 5pm somewhere... but shh!)

Okay, now that I've made barely any sense and possibly completely freaked you out, here's today's recipe. We've gone from last week's Cornish pasty roll to this week's definitely-a-pasty, cheese and courgette pasty. I've bought a completely fresh roll of ready roll puff pastry, after the other one somehow lasted a fortnight. Don't say I ever waste food. Because I absolutely love courgette, I've sliced it fine and included it with a double helping of cheesy cheese. And ooh, it's good.

Cheese & Courgette Pasties
Super cheesy with a hit of crunchy greens, all wrapped up in flaky pastry.
  • 1 sheet ready roll puff pastry
  • 2cm piece of courgette, sliced
  • 1 small boiled potato, skin peeled
  • 30g grated cheddar cheese
  • 20g feta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon melted soya margerine
Start off by lining a baking tray and preheating the oven to 180℃. Finely slice the courgette into strips.Peel and chop the potato into quarters. Add it to a bowl with a tablespoon of water to cover, then microwave it for 3-4 minutes until soft. Mash it up and add the cheese. Stir together until fairly smooth, then pop in the courgette slices.Unroll the pastry and cut out a circle using a small bowl as a cutter. Place it on the baking tray. Scoop in the filling on one half of the circle, using a teaspoon, but avoid putting on too much!Fold over the empty half of the pastry and press down the edges to ensure they stick. Emboss the edges with a fork for decoration, then brush melted soya margerine over the pastry.Put the baking tray in the oven for 12-15 minutes until golden brown and the filling is piping hot. Serve immediately.
