Last night I had loads of odd ingredients left over from other meals, so I decided to throw them all together to use them up and this is what I came up with. Must have been good as my husband said it was the best pie he had ever tasted.
1 onion (finely chopped)
1 clove of garlic (crushed)
1 red pepper (finely chopped)
300g minced meat
Handful of spinach (roughly chopped)
1 tomato (chopped)
Handful of peas
1 Oxo cube (or any stock cube)
1 tbsp of tomato or pepper puree
1 tin of baked beans
A splash of Worcestershire sauce
Salt/pepper and red pepper flakes (as desired)
Puff Pastry (I used ready made as was feeling lazy)
1 egg (beaten for glaze)
Fry the onion and garlic for a few minutes. Add the red pepper and fry until softened.
Add the minced meat and crumble in an Oxo cube then fry until meat is browned.
Now add the spinach, tomato, peas and Worcestershire sauce. After a couple of minutes add the tomato or pepper puree (I used pepper as we like spicy food).
Stir in the beans and season with salt and pepper (and red pepper flakes) as required.
Remove from heat and place in an oven proof dish.
Cover with layers of puff pastry and brush over with egg glaze.
Bake in oven at 180c for approx 20 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.
Serve with creamy mashed potato and gravy.
