Recipe: Turkey and Vegetable Pie

This is the first recipe I’ve pretty much invented from scratch (apart from when I made a Shepherd’s Pie without a recipe), and I loved it so much I wanted to share it with the world. Most of the amounts of ingredients are estimations.

2 sheets shortcrust pastry
500g turkey mince
3/4 cup peas
1 cup frozen veg (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots)
1/2 brown onion, chopped
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp marjoram
1 cup chicken stock
1/3-1/2 cup corn flour


1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray large pie dish with baking spray; line with one sheet of pastry. (You will probably want to bake the base for 3-5 mins here, though I didn’t realise that when I made this – making it up as I go along and all).

2. Cook onions in large fry pan on stove until brown. Add in turkey and cook until brown, then add the herbs and mix together. Add peas and vegetables; cover until cooked. Then add chicken stock, mix well, and add corn flour occasionally until thickened.

3. Add cooked filling into base of pie, then cover with the second sheet of pastry. Bake in oven for 20 minutes.

  1. Was this leftover turkey from Christmas? We froze our leftover turkey and just used it to make a pasta dish with bacon and a few other bits and bobs in a creamy tomato sauce.

    Re the pastry: you’re right, it’s better if you bake it before putting the pie filling in. Off the top of my head, I think about 10-15 minutes is a better bet, so it’s crunchy rather than just staying soggy. Also, you’ll need to blind bake it (line the pastry with baking paper and fill the pie shell with dried beans, rice, pasta or something similar) so that the pastry doesn’t get air under it and end up with bubbles in it.
