Grain-free Aussie-style meat pies

Author Notes: I'm an Aussie in Chicago and I miss pies! I'm also gluten free for health reasons... these 'party' pie morsels are definitely a good substitute. And one is definitely enough!vanessa green

Directions

  1. • Mix crust ingredients together until it formed into a big ball of dough. Roll the “pastry” out to fit paper cupcake cases, reserving about 1/3 of the dough mixture for the lids. Makes 8-12 depending on how think you like your pastry • Cook at 200c/400f until hard, not golden (yet).
  2. • For filling, sauté the onion in a spoonful of coconut oil, and added the minced beef after a couple of minutes. Once that was all browned off, I added the zucchini and carrot and let that cook for a few minutes. Lastly add stock, mushrooms, seasoning and herbs and let it simmer for 15 minutes. Spoon into pie cases.
  3. • Lastly roll out the remaining dough and cut it into lid shapes to match the cases forming a seal around the edges. Return the pies to the oven for another ten minutes, until they started to turn golden.
