Corned Beef Pasty

This is pure comfort food if you are a Slimming World member you can still tuck into a pasty Actifry chips and beans,  1 syn for the corned beef (if using a WW wholemeal pitta  as a HExB) the recipe is with kind permission of a lovely slimming world member Ginlin.

It uses a wholemeal pitta which is 1 HExB and is 1 syn providing you use the 50g of Princes Corned Beef lean corned beef other makes and Princes regular are 3 syns and up, so do take care choosing, I can only find in Tesco's here.
Its simple to make, just take are opening your pittas, I find it better to warm them under a grill. Its packed full of lovely veggies giving you some super frees and makes a tasty snack for supper if you haven't used your B.

Mozzarella, Onion and Tomato

This recipe an be adapted try minced beef for a free pasty, a cheese and onion one works try using a HExA 42g Mozzarella, softened chopped onion first and tomato slices. Try stewed steak and philly too.

1 Syn Corned Beef Pasty

Makes 4 Pasties at 1 syn each on Red and Extra Easy + HExB
Filling for pasty's before mixing

Ingredients:4 Wholemeal pitta breads (either Asda or Co-op, as they are a HExB)
200g tin of Princes Lean corned beef (4 syns)
200g Swede diced small
200g Carrots diced small
Large Onion finely chopped
Knorr beef stock cube
Pepper to taste
Dash of Worcestershire sauce (Optional)
1 Beaten egg for glaze

Filling after mixing

Boil the swede, carrots and onions using a beef stock cube, or if you prefer just lightly salted water, until soft.
Drain, mash or crush, I left mine slightly chunky, mix in the corned beef to your desired consistency,  season to taste. I add lots of pepper and Worcestershire sauce

Its full of lovely ingredients!

Warm the pittas slightly so they are easy to open, then split open the pitta breads, and fill each one with a quarter of the corned beef mixture,  you may need to gently flatten it to get all the filling in, then close it back up, and brush with the beaten egg.

Don't forget the glaze, it makes it a crispy pastry like crust!

Bake in a warm oven, approx 200C for about 20 minutes Fan 180 for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

You can also include potato if you are doing extra easy.
