Recipe's preparation

    Makes 2 family sized pies or 6 small pies
  1. (Suitable for TM31 users as well)


    1. Preheat oven to 210 degrees or 190 degrees for fan forced.

    2. Add garlic to mixing bowl and chop 3 secs / speed 8.

    3. Add carrot, onion, cauliflower,  rosemary and sage leaves to mixing bowl, chop 5 secs / speed 5. Transfer to a bowl, set aside. Don't wash bowl.

    4. Add milk, sour cream, Dijon, salt, pepper and flour to mixing bowl. Mix 10 secs / speed 3. Scrape down sides.

    5. Return chopped veggies to mixing bowl and add chicken, mushrooms and grated cheese if using. Mix on reverse, 15 secs / speed 2.

    6. Roll out home made pastry if using or lay out defrosted store bought sheets.  Cut bottoms and tops for 2 large or 6 individual pies.

    7. Grease pie tins and place bases inside them, fill with pie filling making sure to fill to the edges and press it in firmly, then brush edges of bottom pastry layer and place a pastry top over the filled pie.

    8. Taking care to press all the edges firmly together, work your way around each pie and pinch press the pastry edges against the tin.

    9. With a sharp knife or kitchen scissors, snip a small split abt half a centimetre long in the middle of the pastry top to create a steam vent and brush the tops with milk.

    10. Bake in a hot oven on the middle shelf for 25-30mins until pastry is golden brown.


    Serve with veggies or chips and salad.

1.  You usually shortcrust for the bases and puff for the tops but either pastry will work just as well for both whether its home made or store bought!

2.  Gluten Free substitutes are fine for this recipe.

3.  These pies are quite moist as is despite only a small amount of sauce.  This is because of the veggies inside.  If you want a more saucy pie filling, double the sauce ingredients.

4.  You can shred your leftover chicken on reverse for few seconds in the Thermomix, do that immediately after step two in the recipe; don't wash the mixing bowl.

5.  This recipe would also be a great way to get some healthy food on the plate for kids whether at meal time or as party pies for birthdays and other celebrations.

To make as party pies, use muffin trays for the pies!

6.  Consider making these as a potato top pie and use TM mashed potato with a bit of cheese or egg white through it to make the tops of the pies.
