Roast Pumpkin and Feta Pasties with a Choy Sum Warm Salad

Posted 2017-08-17 by finyfollow

This is a fairly easy to make pastie with roasted pumpkin, feta and pine nuts.

I have teamed it with choy sum vegetables in an Asian sauce.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 60 minutes
Serves: 2 - 3

For the Pasties
400 g pumpkin -peeled and cut into 1 cm pieces
1 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 - 3 sheets puff pastry, cut into about 17 cms square
50 g marinated feta cheese
1 tbsp oregano leaves, chopped
1 tbsp pine nuts
1 small egg yolk
Bit of milk
½ tbsp sesame seeds
For the choy sum
Bunch of choy sum
1 tbsp oil
1½ tsp ginger
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 tsp coconut sugar
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
½ tbsp lemon juice

For the pasties
  • Preheat the oven to 210°/190° fan forced.

  • Put the pieces of cut pumpkin on a baking tray lined with baking paper and mix with the olive oil, garlic and some salt and pepper.

  • Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes or until cooked and golden in colour.

  • Take out of the oven and let it cool.

  • Divide these pumpkin pieces and put on the middle of the pastry squares (I made some of mine slightly smaller and could not fit enough filling in).

  • Top with the feta, oregano, and pine nuts.

  • Drizzle with a bit of the feta marinating oil, and bring two of the diagonally opposite corners together and pinch in the centre above the filling.

  • Bring the other two diagonally opposite corner together and pinch to seal along the edges. The base will be square and the top should form a pyramid.

  • Twist the top to seal where all the corners have met.

  • Mix the egg yolk and a bit of milk and whisk with a fork.

  • Put the pasties on a greased, or lined baking tray and brush with the egg wash.

  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds and a bit of sea salt (optional) and bake for about 15 minutes or until they are a golden colour.

  • For the choy sum
  • Any of the similar Asian vegetables would do for this part of the recipe.

  • Trim the white ends and slice in half (optional).

  • Steam for a few minutes or until it is just starting to wilt and put on the serving plates.

  • Heat a small saucepan and add the oil and ginger and garlic, and stir fry for a minute.

  • Add the sugar, sesame oil, soy sauce and lemon juice, and heat until it is hot.

  • Pour over the choy sum - season to taste and garnish with the sesame seeds (optional).

  • Serve immediately with the pasties.
