Yummy Veggie and Cheese Pasties

Recipe by Lalaloula


  • For the Dough
  • 250
    g low-fat Quark (or use cream cheese mixed with yogurt to a ricotta like consistency)
  • 25
    g butter, softened
  • 75
    g flour (you can use all whole wheat, too)
  • 14
    teaspoon salt
  • For the Filling
  • 1
    small carrot, chopped finely
  • 1
    small parsnip (or other vegetables of your choice to make up this amount, think of peas, potatoes, broccoli, etc.)
  • 1
    teaspoon oil
  • 14
    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 14
    teaspoon chili powder
  • 14
    teaspoon curry powder
  • 12
    teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 50
    g cheese, grated (use a mature variety, low fat is fine)


  • In a big bowl combine quark, butter, flours and salt, Using your hands quickly knead into a smooth dough. Place in the fridge until filling is ready.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan and saute veggies for about 5 minutes. Season with pepper, chili powder, rosemary and curry powder. Allow to cool slightly (2 min.). Stir in cheese.
  • On a lightly floured surface roll out quite thinly (as thinly as possible without it breaking). Using a glass or cookie cutter (8 cm in diameter) cut out 8 rounds.
  • Place 1 tbs of filling onto each dough round and fold over to get a pasty shape. Seal using a fork to press down the rim.
  • Place the pasties on a paper-lined baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven at 180°C/350°F for about 30 minutes (check 5 minutes early to prevent overbrowning).
  • Serve with dipping sauce and salad of choice.
  • Enjoy! :).
