Root vegetable pie

I realise that this blog has become very food-centred lately. Maybe it's because cooking is such a large part of my life. I try to cook from scratch for four hungry people every day so it's just as well that I like it! I'm not so fond of the washing up.

I am particularly enjoying discovering different vegetarian recipes. Having played with pulses for the last few weeks I decided on a root vegetable pie this week. 

The recipe is available on the Riverford Organic Farms website. It is a good example of why you should read a recipe before starting it, as the pie needs to rest before you put it in the oven and then it cooks for an hour! Tea was a little late that day. I was a little wary of how it would go down, but it was surprisingly tasty. Apparently all it needs is gravy. Sigh. Despite the vegetable content it is not a very healthy meal due to all the puff pastry, but it is pretty cheap, especially if you are very good and make your own pastry. I didn't. One day I will, but today is not that day.


  1. hello lesley,
    your pie looks delicious and makes me hungry!!!
    thanks for the link.
    wish you a wonderful weekend,

  2. That looks really good. Will you put the gravy in the pie or serve it as a side?

    1. Probably as a side, and it would have to be using vegetable stock. It would feel like cheating otherwise!

    2. Sounds good. I wonder if a mushroom gravy would be good.


Thank you for your comment - I am always happy to hear from you!
