30 mins to prep

50 mins to bake

  1. Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 200°C (convection) or 180°C (fan-forced).

  2. Step 2

    Toss the potatoes, carrots, olive oil and herbs in a large bowl. Spread on a baking tray. Roast for 25 minutes or until cooked through

  3. Step 3

    Return the vegetables to the bowl. Add the peas, corn and onion relish and mix through. Generously season the mixture with salt and pepper, to taste.

  4. Step 4

    Cut 12cm circles from the pastry. You can use a large cookie cutter or a small lid or plate as a guide.

  5. Step 5

    Place a little less than 1/4 cup of the mixture in the center of each round. Fold each round of pastry and pinch to seal. Crimp the edges of the pastry, if desired.

  6. Step 6

    In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the vegan egg wash in a small bowl. Brush each pasty with the mixture.

  7. Step 7

    Bake the pasties for around 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with dipping sauce of choice.

Hot tip!

A few brands of frozen pastry are accidentally vegan as they use vegetable shortening instead of butter. However, double-check the ingredients of your pastry before you buy it.
