Yield: 12 x pasties
Pre-prepare 3 cups of Low-Fat Pastry (* 3 cups = about double the pastry recipe).
Mix prepared potato, carrot, turnip, and onion with salt, pepper, a selection of fresh herbs, and ground beef. This may all be done in a food processor if available.
Roll out the Low-Fat Pastry and cut into 12 circles with a 7-inch plate.
Place 1/3 cup of filling on each half, moisten outer edge with water, fold over and seal. Cut 2 small slits in each for steam.
Place pasties on baking trays. Bake in 350ºF oven for about 40 minutes or until brown.
Replacements for beef: Substitute chicken or rinsed, water-packed canned tuna.
Vary the vegetables by substituting cooked rice for potatoes and incorporating celery, mushrooms and bell pepper.
