Roll out the pastry, divide into 4 and place onto a lightly oiled  baking tray lined with grease proof paper. Divide the filling between the 4 pastry shapes and crimp the edges together. I find that by lightly spreading water to the edge of the pastry with a finger helps the edges to stick together.

Cooking Time

Place the baking tray in the middle of your pre-heated oven and cook for about 25-30 minutes at gas mark 4 (350F/180C). To check if the pastry is done just lightly tap it. It should feel firm to the touch.

Remove from the oven and using a flat blade or fish slice, transfer the pasties to a wire rack to cool or to plates to eat hot.

Enjoy. Not only one of the easiest recipes I have used but also very tasty and filling.

Variations

If you want to make these simple tasty vegan pasties for a snack, divide the pastry into 8 and make 8 smaller pasties. Or try adding a Chilli or chilli powder to the mix to hot things up a bit.

So there you have it, I hope  you enjoy these tasty pasties as much as I do. Have you tried any other variations? Please let me know below in the comments.
