Not quite 'raised' pies, but individual pies - has anyone a really tasty vegetarian recipe for a Cornish pasty-type filling?  Chef

I will be running a cake stall in July for the Bike Meet in Calne, Wiltshire - last year over 4000 bikers arrived and this year they're hoping for an even better event! Ok

http://www.thisiswiltshire.co.uk/news/headlines/81.....bike_meet/

The organiser has asked me to provide some savouries as well as cakes/cookies etc. She suggested Cornish pasties, and I thought it would be good to do some for vegetarians, too.

I shall be experimenting, too, as I want something really more-ish  ........... watch this space!

Just found this - they look good. I haven't made them though.

If you try them I'd be interested to know how they turn out.  Butternut squash can sometimes be a little sweet for use in savoury dishes for my tastes.  Be nice to know if the other ingrediants, especially the parmesan helps to even them out.

Otherwise any good combo of veg would work - perhaps spud, carrot, swede, leek/onion, mushroom and cheese or something along those lines.  Or a homity pie in a pasty.  Or even just homity pies - I've used this recipe to make individual ones and it's lovely. 

Well done you for catering to us veggies though.  WellDoneChefStar

Thanks for that, too, Ruth. Ok

Funny thing, while at my daughter's today, we discussed this, and she suggested cheese and onion as a filling, and I suggested adding potatoes, and we both agreed that would be my first trial.

Homity pie appears to be pastry under only - whereas I need to make something that the bikers can walk away with - an individual pie - so it will be Cornish pasty style.

Other question is, shortcrust or flaky/puff? I'm not sure that wholemeal would appeal to bikers Whistle .

I'm leaning towards the puff pastry atm. Laugh

Puff also – that's just personal preference though.  Laugh I didn't make mine with wholemeal pastry - it can be nice but far more often I've had it and it's so solid and heavy you feel like you're eating lino!  Homity is normally an open top pie but there's no reason it shouldn't work as a pasty.  That recipe really was good so give it a whirl.  Oh, and don't be worried that it states wet garlic, regular is fine.  I'm making myself hungry now!  Post me one down and I'll be your tester if you like, it's really no trouble…Whistle

Ahem! As an ex-biker I resemble that remark.

I'll try that again!

Ruth, would be glad to, too Ok and then I would have a proper taster's opinion Big_Laugh !!!!

TA, I am also an 'ex'-biker - I met my hubby at a bike club - and my three brothers all had bikes. In fact I was club magazine editor!

I use the term 'ex'-biker, because, although I haven't ridden on one for some time, hubby has just finished restoring two very old bikes - and they both have a double seat on them ......... Medicine

Oh, so sorry, Ruth - you're redundant Eeek. My nephew is passing through the area tomorrow with his little girl, and will be wanting lunch - he's a vegetarian. Guess what he's getting for lunch ????  Big_Laugh

Will report back ....
