Food- What to do about the vegetables?

January 30th, 2012 | Posted by Sara in Cooking | Thermomix

A little known secret about me is that I can cook. I chose not to cook more than the basics most nights, but if I put my mind to it I can serve up a decent meal.

This week is the start of my DIY food series, each week, I’ll try to post a new recipe that I consider to be quick, easy & above all yummy. Most of them will be suitable for left overs & I hope you try some & let me know what you think! Where ever possible I try to use whole foods, with minimal processing, for me this means I try to avoid prepackaged jars & sauces, however I am realistic so at times easy is best – particularly when I was working full time.

To kick off this is my use up all the leftover veggies meal

Veggie pie

200g low fat feta cheese
1 sheet of puff pastry
1 egg yolk
Precooked chicken (left over from a home made roast, or pre bought BBQ chook- optional)
Grate or use a food processer to chop up all the veggies to very small pieces (Thermomix speed 6 for 10seconds- be careful not to overload the Thermomix)
Place veggies in a pan with a little olive oil & cook until soft (Thermomix speed 1 for 10 mins, 100°C)
Dice the feta & chicken into small pieces (Thermomix speed 6 for 5 seconds)
Stir the feta & chicken (if using) into the veggie mixture
Transfer veggies into a quiche pan, casserole dish or other oven safe pan
Place the puff pastry over the top & tuck it down the sides of the pan, brush egg yolk over the top
Cook for about 30mins at 180°C until the pastry is crispy
Serve with green leafy salad

Whats your favourite way of using up the left over vegetables?
