Cost Cutting Eco Friendly Freezes Well

You can’t beat the combination of a crumbly, crusty top and succulent filling you get with a good pie. And this pie is good!

Chestnut and Vegetable Pie Recipe: Live Green & Good


2 tbsp olive oil

3 shallots, peeled and thickly sliced

175g cooked carrots

175g new potatoes, cut into chunks

175g lightly boiled or steamed broccoli florets

200g cooked, peeled whole chestnuts, roughly chopped

175g grated Cheddar cheese

1 free-range egg yolk

2 tbsp Greek yoghurt

ground black pepper

300g Stork packet

450g plain flour

55g grated vegetarian Parmesan-style cheese

1 free-range beaten egg, to glaze

1 tsp fennel seeds (optional)

1 Knorr Onion Gravy Pot


  • For the filling, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan, add in the shallots and fry until softened. Add the carrots, potatoes and broccoli and fry, stirring, for five minutes. Remove from the heat and mix in the chestnuts; set aside to cool.
  • Mix together the Cheddar, egg yolk, yogurt and season with black pepper and set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
  • To make the pastry, rub the Stork into flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the Parmesan and enough cold water to mix to soft dough. Knead lightly on a floured surface until smooth.
  • Roll out half the pastry to a rectangle 30x20cm and lift onto a baking sheet. Spoon over half the vegetable mixture to within 2.5cm (1 in) of the pastry edges. Top with the cheese and yogurt mixture then the rest of the vegetable mixture.
  • Roll out the remaining pastry, dampen pastry edges and place over the filling, pressing to seal the edges and form the pie. Make 3-4 slashes in the top of the pie to allow steam to escape.
  • Brush the pastry with beaten egg and sprinkle with fennel seeds.
  • Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Serve with Knorr gravy, made from a Knorr Gravy Pot.
