A great recipe for anyone who enjoys baking. The filling contains zucchini, carrots, cabbage, red capsicum, onions and garlic yet still tastes so yummy that even the pickiest eaters gobble them up!


Serves: 16 

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) warm water
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup (90g) wholemeal flour
  • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour, or as needed
  • 500g pork mince
  • 1 cup finely chopped cabbage
  • 1 small zucchini, grated
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup red capsicum, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic, or to taste
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

  1. Sprinkle the yeast over warm water in a large bowl bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes until the yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam. Beat in the sugar, egg, 1/2 teaspoon salt and wholemeal flour with an electric mixer on low for 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in the bread flour a 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl then place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a light cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.
  3. While the dough is rising heat a large frypan over medium heat and cook and stir until the pork is crumbly, evenly browned and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  4. Add the cabbage, zucchini, onion, red capsicum, carrot and garlic. Cook and stir until the vegetables are tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  5. Punch down the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Use a knife to divide the dough into four equal pieces-don't tear it. Roll each portion out to an 20cm square then cut each large square into four smaller squares.
  6. Place about 3 tablespoonfuls of the pork filling into the center of each square. Bring the corners over the filling and pinch to seal. Secure with a toothpick if needed. Spray a baking tray with cooking spray. Place the pasties on the prepared baking tray about 8cm apart. Cover the pasties with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Remove from pan and discard toothpicks. Brush each pocket with melted butter. Serve hot.
