Who else grew up eating homemade pasties!!?? I certainly did! They were the perfect weekend lunch, lunch box treat or after-school snack… and even now, they’re just as good (maybe even a bit better!!!).

For me, homemade pasties have always been ALL about the pastry!! It’s got to be crispy, crunchy, flakey and oh-so-delicious. Pastry. Pastry. PASTRY!!!!!!!

But now that I’m a Mum… things like vegetables also play a big part! Now my pasties have to have the BEST pastry – but also lots of hidden little vegetables inside!

To make these Hidden Vegetable & Lamb Pasties, I’m a bit sneaky and grate my vegetables finely in a food processor or a Thermomix. Sure you could grate them by hand (please feel free too… I’m just a bit lazy when it comes to grating veggies!). But by grating the veggies, any fussy little people in your house will be none the wiser!

This Hidden Vegetable & Lamb Pasties recipe makes 8 BIG pasties which is the perfect number for hungry families! But if you end up with some leftovers… fear not! Pop them in an airtight container in the freezer for handy little snacks.

    Would the flavour combination be fine with Beef Mince?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Absolutely!

  2. Lynda says:

    Just checking that you don’t need to brown the lamb mince before placing in the pastry.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Lynda, you can if you prefer – but you don;t need to!

  3. Kiarne says:

    Could you make these vegetarian? Or does the Lamb really add a lot to each?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Kiarne, you can absolutely make vegetarian pasties! xx

  4. Jamie says:

    Hi Lucy, should these be frozen old or uncooked? Will the pastry be soggy when defrosted?

    1. Lucy says:

      Hi Jamie, you can freeze them uncooked or cooked. Allow them to defrost before cooking/reheating and they shouldn’t be soggy!
