A cheesy vegetable pot pie

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180°-200°C fan forced (200°C-220°C normal).
  • To make the cheese sauce, melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed pot and add the flour. Mix well and cook over a very low heat for 4-5 mins. 
  • Bring 1 litre milk to the boil in another pot and add it all at once to the flour mixture. Whisk well and cook over a moderate heat until reasonably thick, adding more milk as necessary. 
  • Then add the cheese, seasonings and cream. Stir and gently cook until the cheese has melted. Taste for seasoning. 
  • At the same time, toss the vegies with oil and a decent amount of seasonings and cook in the oven until tender. 
  • Then combine the roasted vegies with the cheese sauce. 
  • Cut rounds in the puff pastry sheets, a little larger than the cooking bowls.
  • Then fill the four bowls with the vegie mixture - not to the top. 
  • Beat together ¼ cup milk with the egg.
  • Then brush the edges of each bowl with the egg wash and place a pastry round on top. Press down the sides and paint the top with more egg wash. Cook in the oven for about 25-35 mins until golden brown.
  • Serve with a simple green salad on the side.
