Gluten Free Pie Dough

  • Preheat oven to 350F / 175C
  • Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and form it into a dough. Cover in plastic and let it rest for 20 minutes in the fridge. 
  • Roll half of the dough out on or between two parchment paper sheets, dust with rice flour if needed to keep it from sticking. The dough should be about 3mm thick. 
  • Slice it into 4 to 5 inch squares and scoop some of the filling, about 2 tbsp, on one half of the square leaving the sides clean. Fold over with a spatula and close the sides with a fork. 
  • Brush some plant based milk on top before baking. Bake for 25 minutes or until the edges are golden / light brown. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling. 

Sweet Potato Filling

  • Slice the onion and saute it in some water or oil for a few minutes until it is starting to often. Add in the cubed sweet potatoes and a little splash of water  and saute some more until they are almost done. Add salt to taste.
  • Add in the mushroom and saute for 5 more minutes. 
  • Add in the seasonings and the green peas, saute for 2 more minutes. 
  • Then add in the parsley and spring onion. Mix it through, taste for seasonings and turn off the heat. Let it cool before using to fill the pies.
