Gluten Free Sweet Potato and Coconut Milk Pastie!

Gluten Free Sweet Potato and Coconut Milk Pastie!

(Serves 2)
Pastry -

300g gf doves flour
1 tbsp flaxseed
1/4 tsp oregano
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp coconut oil
100ml water

3 medium sweet potatoes
1 can kidney beans, drained
1/2 can coconut milk
1 tsp medium curry powder

1 head spring greens
1 cup frozen peas

First, place the sweet potatoes straight into the oven as they are whole at 200°C for 45 minutes.

Meanwhile in a bowl add the flour, flaxseed, oregano and baking powder. Put the coconut oil in a microwavable bowl and melt in the microwave for 40 seconds. Then add this to the flour and mix in along with the water, adding it gradually until a dough ball forms. Use your hands to form the dough. Line a baking sheet with baking paper or oiled tin foil. Then split the mixture in two and flatten out 2 long pizza shaped pastry shapes.

In a separate bowl add the kidney beans and coconut milk and once the sweet potatoes are soft, carefully take them out the oven and peel off the skin (and eat it) then mash and add to the mixture. Add the curry powder and mix well. Place a large dollop of mixture on one side of the pastry and fold over to close and form the pasty! Pierce holes in the top and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes.

Whilst they're nearly done tear some spring greens (collard greens) or cabbage into a frying pan along with water and peas, then steam fry until vibrant green. As the water evaporates, replace with more.
Carefully take out the oven, chop in two and serve!
