Leek cobbler : Wk22/1

Serves 4 : Very easy : Quickish
300gm leeks, trimmed and sliced
4-6 courgettes, sliced
1 large carrot, chopped
1 cup frozen peas
1 green apple, grated
200gm ham, chopped or shredded
400ml veg stock

100gm cake flour
2 sprigs fresh thyme leaves
1 Tblsp olive oil
75gm natural fat free yoghurt

Combine the flour, oil, yoghurt, thyme leaves and a little salt to form the pastry.

Spray a large pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Dry fry the leeks, courgettes and carrot for a few minutes until the leek starts to soften.
Add the stock and simmer for ten minutes.

Stir through the ham, peas and grated apple.
Tip into a sprayed/greased casserole dish.

Roll or press the pastry to about 1cm thickness.
Cut out pastry rounds and place on top of the veg and ham mix.

Bake at 200°C for 20 – 25 minutes until the pastry rounds are browned and the vegetables are bubbling.

Serve with plain boiled potatoes, if you wish.

For a vegetarian version, leave out the ham.
