Vegetable Strudel Pie
Growing up in South Australia, Balfour’s
Traditional Pasties were the alternative to eating a Balfour’s
Meat Pie. I can still close my eyes and reminisce biting into steaming hot vegetables encased in D-shaped, golden coloured, flaky pastry that just seemed to melt in your mouth. Balfour’s
Pies and Pasties defined Adelaide and the Balfour’s
brand has always held unofficial iconic status for South Australians.
My home-made pays homage to my youth and to Balfour’s
Pies and Pasties.
This does place more emphasis on the vegetables and less on the pastry and is accompanied with a liberal swirl of Eggplant Dip
instead of tomato sauce. It tastes deliciously wicked either hot or cold which makes this a pie that can be enjoyed all year round.
