Vegetarian Curry Puffs

With the weather changing and the dark evenings and cold mornings upon us, a quick healthy snack is ideal when you are pressed for time.  These little golden puffs of goodness are easy to make or store for later use.

You will need:

1 Pack Quorn Soy Free/Meat Free Mince
1 small diced onion
1 jar Pataks mild curry paste
200g grated vegetables- I used carrot and zucchini
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp chilli powder
4 sheets Puff Pastry

In a non stick pan brown the onion and spices then mx in the Quorn, making sure the onion is mixed through.
Add the grated vegetables- make sure if you’re using zucchini you squeeze the excess moisture out before adding it to the pan.

 
 
Let the mince and vegetables cook for five minutes and then add the sauce. Let the mixture bubble away while preparing the pastry.  The aromas should be beautiful and if you find the mix getting a little bit dry add about a 1/4 of a cup of water.
 
Grab your puff pastry sheets & lay a single sheet on a chopping board and use a circular cookie cutter or a can to press out circles.
 
 
Once you have cut out circles in all the pastry sheets start spooning about a table spoon of the mince mixture onto half of your circles.
 

Top each circle with it’s lid and then use your fingers to press the sides down omto each other. They should form a tight seal- but add a little bit of water with your fingers around the edge of the pastry to help them stick.
 
 

 
 
 
Once all your puffs are sealed, place then on a tray lined with baking paper and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees until browned and puffed.  This should take about 20 minutes.
 
 

 
Serve with a tomato or barbeque dipping sauce or enjoy them by themselves.
