Vegetable Curry Pastie Recipe

10.14.14 by Jackie

I was determined to replicate these vegetable curry pasties after a date night with my husband Lulu in Redwood City in the Bay Area. We went to watch Gone Girl, a film adaptation of the critically-acclaimed book by Gillian Flynn. After the movie, we were a bit hungry and went to Café La Tartine across from the AMC Cinema for a quick bite. 

First, I prepared an onion and chive-flavored savory pie crust, then I prepared simple curried vegetables. I stuffed the baked pastry with the spicy vegetables and cooked them for 35 minutes until golden brown. It's that simple! I saved the leftover individual pasties and stored them in the freezer so Lulu can have some whenever he wants.

Butternut Squash Pocket Sandwich Recipe Recipe

My husband's youngest sister, who just started third grade, recently told me she didn't like "Wednesday Pizza" at school and asked me to give her a boxed lunch instead. I had leftover roasted butternut squash, so in the morning, I quickly improvised a flavorful hot pocket sandwich with 2 of my little munchkin's other favorite ingredients: salami and brie cheese. 

I assembled the pocket in a sandwich grill we have. I love this sandwich maker because it browns the bread and seals the sandwich perfectly. After they were done cooking, I wrapped the sandwiches in wax paper and packed them in her Disney Princess school lunch bag. The sandwiches cooled down to room temperature by lunch time, but they were still crunchy and delicious. If you were to make these as a box lunch for work, you could put them in the toaster to re-heat before eating. No microwave though!
