Yield: 12 x pasties

Preparation Time: 30 mins
Cooking Time: 40 mins

Ingredients:

    3 cup Low-Fat Pastry (* see recipe link)
    3 medium potatoes, finely chopped
    2 carrots, finely chopped (5 oz)
    1 medium turnip, finely chopped
    1 large onion, finely chopped
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    2 Tbsp mix of fresh herbs (such as marjoram, thyme and parsley)
    10 1/2 oz lean ground beef

Directions:

    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 350F oven for about 40 minutes or until brown.

Variations:

    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.
