Pies are great. Savoury or sweet, they always manage to hit the spot.
I decided to make a lamb pie this evening (my eldest isn’t a big fan of chicken and my hubby loves lamb!).
I wanted the children to get part of their five a day in the pie to so decided to add aubergine (which always goes really well with lamb) and potato and sweet potato.
I fried off the diced red onion with garlic, then added the diced aubergine to brown. I then added the par-boiled potatoes and sweet potatoes. I added a little freshly ground curry powder, just a little as it’s quite stronger (stronger than the shop bought ones).
I cooked this off for about 15mins with just a dash of water to stop anything from burning.
Whilst the filling was cooling I rolled the pastry out (shop bought I’m afraid) and covered the ovenproof dish. I then brushed with beaten to make the pastry all golden.
15-20mins in a pre-heated oven and voila….a delicious dinner.
Try it for yourself, it’s so easy.
