Set aside on ThermoMat, forming the mix into a ball, then wrap it up in the ThermoMat and allow to cool in the refrigerator whilst making filling.

  8. Place onion and garlic into mixing bowl and chop 3 sec/speed 7. Scrape down sides of bowl.

  12. Assembly
  13. Preheat oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.

  14. Cut the chilled pastry in half and place one half on a lightly floured ThermoMat. Roll the pastry out to a 22 x 22cm square and trim so the edges are neat, then cut this into four pieces about 11 x 11cm each. Repeat process with the other half of the pastry.

  15. Place one good tablespoon of cold filling into the centre of each square and lift half of the pastry over the filling to create a rectangluar pocket pie (6 x 11cm). Repeat for all pies.

  16. Place pies onto prepared baking tray and, using a fork, press the edges of the pies to seal.

  17. Place egg into clean, dry mixing bowl and mix 10 sec/speed 4.

  18. Brush egg wash over the top of pies. Place into oven and cook for 30 minutes, or until golden. Remove and allow to cool a little before serving.


Some spelt flours will absorb more liquid than others. If you mix is too dry, add in the remaining water in Step 3.

Coconut Lentil and Vegetable Pocket Pies

    Even though I didn't have apple cider vinegar or wakame gomaiso, this pastry is delicious. I used pumpkin because it was what I had on hand. I've made this a few times, and now everyone in my family loves it. So quick and easy to make, and it tastes great! I've never been very good at making quiches.

    I didn;t have cabbage or Kale but used some baby spinach leaves (same quatity) and they were delicious

    This pastry is great - even though I didn't have apple cider vinegar or wakame gomaiso. Made filling of what I had on hand - pumpkin, spinach and kangaroo mince with heaps of pepper. Superb little lunch food! Look forward to doing the coconut lentil filling next time.

    I made these using olive oil instead of coconut oil for pastry - I put the oil in a screw top jar with the ice cold water and shook well to partly emulsify before adding to the spelt flour. It worked a treat - absolutely delicious result all round!  tmrc_emoticons.)

    I made thes Gluten free by substituting the Spelt flour for 1/2 Buckwheat flour and 1/2 Bakels Flour (white Gluten free flour mix).  They turned out really delicious. tmrc_emoticons.D
