Savoury Sweet Potato Pie
Makes 4 small pies
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 sweet potato
1 sprig of fresh rosemary
1 x sheet of ready-rolled shortcrust pastry
4 teaspoons of crème fraiche
1 handful of roughly grated parmesan
1 tablespoon of roughly chopped walnuts
1 egg, beaten
- Pre-heat your oven to 190c/170c fan/gas mark 5. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Peel and finely dice sweet potato into small cubes. Add to the pan, along with the leaves from the rosemary sprig, a pinch of salt and pepper, and fry for 15 minutes or until soft.
- Meanwhile, lay out the pastry on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. If it’s more of a rectangle shape, cut into a large square (discard the leftover bits of pastry). Then cut the pastry into four squares. Put a teaspoon of crème fraiche in the middle of the pastry. Top with a tablespoon of sweet potato mix. Sprinkle with the roughly grated Parmesan.
- Bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until pastry is golden and cheese has melted. Serve with a lightly dressed green salad.
