We made these a little different from the recipe but the base flavour from this recipe is excellent. We used 2 large leeks, added 12 asparagus spears (chopped in 0.5cm pieces) and used a vegetarian chicken stock. We put chopped BBQ chicken breast in two of the four pies, so we got 2 Vegetarian pies and 2 Chicken pies.
