These Vegetable Pies are Miss Eagle's favourites. Over at Photo Friday,the subject this week is Texture. These Vege Pies are laden with texture. The pastry is Puff Pastry out of the freezer cabinet at Maxi's. It lines the pie dishes and makes twisted ribbons of pastry for decorating the top. On the pastry base, the first layer is mashed pumpkin. This is a wonderful base for whatever and however you choose for layering the remaining vegetables. The green in the photograph is asparagus and the red is strips of capsicum. Somewhere down below are pumpkin and squash and onions and herbs. Sprinkled on the top are tiny cubes of feta. The secret of wonderful appetising food is colour and texture and these pies have both in spades.
