4 comforting vegetarian pies

Pies are an ideal veggie treat and always so comforting. There is no end of combinations that you can dream up and a crusty topping always makes for a reassuringly and delicious dinner. 

Whether you like something cheesy or you're more of an all-of-the-veg person, we've got a recipe for you:

Cheese and potato pie

Enjoy a gooey and cheesy pie week with this cheese and potato pie. Layers of potato and cheese filling are encased in a herby shortcrust pastry for a comforting dinner. The pastry has an extra special twist, as it is filled with chives and thyme for a herby hit that finishes off the pie just deliciously.

Vegetarian Cottage Pie

This Vegetarian Cottage Pie packs a punch with each serving containing four of your five-a-day. The lentil and mushroom filling is full of flavour and topped with light and fluffy mashed sweet potato and potato. It is a warming weekday winner that takes less than an hour to make and cook.

VEGAN CARROT TARTE

If you're feeling a little fancy or are after a vegan main, this carrot tart is a fuss-free yet yummy option. Layered with parsley pesto, and then topped with roasted carrots and pomegranate seeds, it's a vibrant main with a clever secret – everything is cooked separately then assembled before serving to avoid a soggy bottom. Now that's something everyone will love!

Asparagus filo pie

Hidden under golden filo pastry is an asparagus, spinach, ricotta and feta filling for an indulgent veggie treat. This filo pie serves six so is an ideal dish if you're batch-cooking. It also uses pre-made filo for ease, so you can leave it baking while you spend time with your loved ones.
