I am looking for an easy vegetarian pasty recipe, i don't have loads of time but want to get some made and put in the freezer as baby is due very soon. I only have ready made puff pastry in the house so preferably using that would be great but i can pop out and get shortcrust if need be.
Thanks in advance.

Can you just sub the butter with Pure margarine? I'm too lazy to make my own and buy Jusroll puff/shortcrust/filo all vegan. smile

Not sure if this would 'translate' to pasty, sure it would.

I roll out puff pastry into a square, prick a square with fork leaving an inch all around, put sun dried tomatoes, goats cheese (sub if non dairy eater) and basil on and stick in oven.

I also do a spinach, ricotta and pine nut one. Kids love it and it feels sort of healthy (minus pastry)

There's a hugh fearnley whittingstall one made with lentils and butternut squash. Amazing pasties and also works well as a shepherd's pie filling.

I made sausage rolls last night - cook a veggie sausage for half the time on the pack. Add cheese, herbs etc to pastry, fold and roll until cheese etc is distributed evenly. Cut into strips and roll around the sausages. Brush with egg, cook at 200C for 20mins.

Am confused slightly as I thought butter was vegetarian, just not suitable for vegans.

Can someone either reassure me or correct me and explain why.

Thanks in advance.

PS just use trex?

butter is vegetarian. The op was looking for veggie pasty recipes, not pastry, think thats causing some confusion?

I used to make these for DS2's lunchbox - ready made puff pastry is perfect! Basically I used to use anything that was leftover and put it into a pasty.

Any leftover veg with a cheese sauce added works really well. Or, leftover mashed potato, with cheese and some diced, sauteed onions.

Vegetable curry - just make sure that it's not too liquidy.

Nicknamegrief my fault I think all pastry must be vegetarian I was thinking vegan sorry smile

i want to make the Greggs veggie pasties, they are bloody lovely. Veg in a sort of slightly peppery white sauce. Mmm.

Spiced, mashed sweet potato with fried onions mixed in makes a lovely pasty.

boiled potatoes, cut into chunks and mixed with some onions fried with curry powder, cooked peas and a squeeze of lime juice is nice.

little chunks of cooked potato, carrot, parsnip and swede in a little bit of white sauce.

baked beans, with the sauce drained off, mixed with some weet chili sauce and grated cheese.

Make individual mushroom wellingtons.

Fry finely chopped onion & mushroom, then add white wine, cook off the alcohol, add soy sauce, a bit of veg stock, a pinch of marjoram and sage, chopped cashew nuts (or similar), stir and add breadcrumbs until the mixture resembles a thick pate. Blend it in food processor if required, but leave it coarse. For a firmer filling, add an egg.

Place onto pastry sheet(s), fold over, brush with egg and bake.

I make potato pies with my puff pastry. You can fill with lamb mince or spicy chopped up potato. Potato and sweetcorn is a good combination and they freeze really well.
