A good one I have found is a quick and easy "Samosa"
1 can of baked beans
Mixed vegies (frozen ones are great!)
1 Chopped onion.
1/2 teaspoon of curry powder (or to taste)
Mix all ingredients togther and place on one sheet of puff pastry, leaving a 2cm border on all sides.
Place another sheet of puff pastry on top and join together, pressing down with a fork.
Lightly pierce the pastry to prevent is bursting open whilst cooking and lightly brush with a beaten egg.
Cook at 220 degrees until golden and brown (roughly 20-25 mins in a fan forced oven)
This dish feeds 4 and you can serve it up with mash potato, it's actually really filling and gives your daily serve of vegies.
Total cost is around $4-5 using homebrand pastry.
