Roast Sweet Potato Goats Cheese and Spinach Pie

Om nom nom. (photo by Heather)

I can’t think of any food that is quite as comforting as pie, especially as it’s usually accompanied by mounds of mashed potato and thick gravy. The recipe is based on the delicious Heidi pie by Pieminister and it is definitely a labour of love, especially if you make your pastry from scratch, but it is so worth it! This is perfect for eating in your pjs on a freezing cold evening!

For 2 you’ll need:

  • 350g home made rough puff
  • 1 medium sweet potato chopped into small chunks
  • 1 small red onion chopped into small chunks
  • 2 cloves of garlic peeled
  • A big glug of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 handfuls of baby spinach roughly torn
  • 50g goats cheese chopped in to chunks
  1. Put the sweet potato, onion and garlic in to a small roasting tin, cover with olive oil, season well and pop in to a preheated oven (200 degrees) for 40 minutes, mixing occasionally.
  2. While the vegetables are in the oven roll out the pastry and line your pie dish with 2/3 and keep the other 1/3 for the top.
  3. Put your spinach into a colander and pour boiling water over to wilt it, then put to one side.
  4. When the roasted vegetables are ready, remove from the oven and roughly squish with the back of a fork leaving some chunks intact. Make sure all of the garlic is sqished and mixed in though, as I imagine that wouldn’t be nice to find!
  5. Mix the spinach and goats cheese in, then spoon the mixture in to the pastry lined pie dish.
  6. Roll out the rest of the pastry and cover the top of the pie, trim the edges and make some kind of super cool decoration for the top (I made a star).
  7. Pop in the oven for 30-40 minutes, until it’s nice and browned and serve it up with lots of mash and gravy!

This was absolutely delicious... We just cooked this (although doubled the ingredients and had a big pie instead!) It was amazing ... I would say a pretty good replica of the PieMinister Heidi pie too.. I have this with a yummy gravy and then mint peas and baby carrots - delicious. Only thing I'd say is add a bit more goats cheese and cut the onions up quite finely - otherwise the recipe is perfect. Thanks! D x
