POTD: Pie January 14, 2010

Wifey and I had 2 good friends over the other night for dinner. These friends are vegetarian, (whereas Wifey and I are not), but it meant we got to make something we’d never tried before. (When I say “we”, I mean 80% Wifey, 20% me)

So we made a Chickpea and Courgette Pie. It had some other stuff in it too (like a lot of Basmati rice, of all things), but the main point of interest was that it was made using phyllo (filo) pastry, in a spring-form pan. Anyway, the meal was a success, I thought, and it was great to try out something we wouldn’t ordinarily have eaten.

Here are one or two pics of the masterpiece, in the making:

Phyllo Pastry Preparation

Mmm, Filled with Filling!

Wow, seriously impressive looking meal – well done!

thanks Deems. I know everyone always says this, but it seriously was really quite easy. Phyllo was a little fiddly in some ways, but much better than anticipated.
And, everyone *also* always says this, but seriously, was very tasty indeed!

What a brilliant idea!
Can the phyllo pastry be bought? Must it be made from scratch like in the days of yore? Give us the recipe for the filling!

hey Cath
Nah you can buy the pastry anywhere, ready rolled etc. I’ll get wifey to email you the recipe sometime 🙂
I can’t. That would be a bit naff.

That pie looks lovely, care to share the recipe?

Impressed. That is a great effort to go to for veggies – most people kop out on us.

Ditto. Recipe please (hope it was spicy!).

Oh alright, I’ll try remember to get the recipe to you lot tonight or tomorrow – I don’t have it here with me – it actually comes from a cookbook so I might just give the gist of it, rather than plagiarise it completely 🙂
