To make eight servings of the Frankenstein Veggie Hand Pies recipe, you will need the following ingredients:
- Puff pastry: 1 sheet
- Spinach: 1 cup
- Broccoli: 1 cup
- Carrots: 1 cup (chopped)
- Mushrooms: 1 cup (chopped)
- Garlic: 1 clove (minced)
- Onion: ½ (finely chopped)
- Milk: 2 tablespoons (for brushing)
- Salt: ¼ teaspoon
- Black pepper: ¼ teaspoon
- Red pepper flakes: ¼ teaspoon
- Olive oil: 2 tablespoons
Step 1: Preheat the oven
Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F).
Step 2: Prepare the vegetables
Wash and chop the spinach, broccoli, carrots, and mushrooms. Finely chop half an onion and mince a clove of garlic.
Step 3: Saute the veggies
In a pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté until the onion turns translucent. Add the chopped spinach, broccoli, carrots, and mushrooms to the pan. Add salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Step 4: Roll out the pastry
Roll out the puff pastry sheet on a floured surface and cut it into eight rectangular shapes.
Step 5: Fill the pastry
Spoon the vegetable mixture into the center of each pastry rectangle, leaving enough space at the edges for folding.
Step 6: Fold the pastry
Fold the pastry rectangles in half and seal the edges by pressing them down with a fork. Use a knife to cut out small squares on the top to create the “stitching” detail like Frankenstein’s forehead.
Step 7: Brush with milk and bake
Place the hand pies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush each hand pie with a little milk and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
