Creamy veg tangle pie

“What is a tangle pie?” I hear you ask. I first heard the term on the Hairy Bikers TV show, it is a pie topped with scrunched up filo pastry (that’s the tangle part) so it is lower in calories but still tasty =)

This recipe is from a free booklet I picked up from ASDA, it is a vegetarian recipe but I added leftover cooked chicken breast, it would work well with any leftover meat. Now I must admit… It makes 4 portions and there are 3 of us in my house, normally the 4th portion would go in the fridge for later but this was such a hit that we ate the 4th portion too… Clean plates all around =D

Creamy veg tangle pie

  • 300g broccoli, cut into florets
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, plus 1 tbsp for brushing
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 400g pack white mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 295g can low fat mushroom condensed soup
  • 4 sheets filo pastry
  • 100g cooked chicken/ham/other leftover meat (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Put the broccoli in a pan of boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes. Drain.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp of the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the onion and cook over a medium heat for 4 minutes until soft. Add the mushrooms and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for another 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add the mushroom soup and broccoli to the pan and heat through (Add the cooked meat now, if using). Transfer to a pie dish.
  4. Brush the filo pastry with oil. Cut into wide strips and put on top of the pie, scrunching up roughly. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is golden and crisp.
