Goat cheese and vegetable pie

vegetable and goat cheese pie Oct 15 (1)

One of the cheeses I made last week became a bit too crumbly so I have decided to use it up now rather than let it mature over the coming months. I therefore came up with a recipe for a cheese and vegetable pie.

Into a baking dish I put chopped vegetables - turnip, runner beans, carrots, cauliflower and onions - along with some of the crumbled cheese. Potatoes were boiled in goats whey and then mashed. Some of the cheese was also mixed into the mashed potato.

The goats whey used to boil the potatoes was used to make a white sauce by adding in cornflour. The sauce was then poured over the vegetables and the mashed potato was then added as the topping.

The dish then went into the oven for 45 minutes at 160C and then for a further 15 minutes at 180C to brown off the potatoes.

This was the end result. It is providing us both with 3 days' main meals.
