Recipe: Vegetarian Haggis Greek Pie

inside vegetarian haggis greek feta pie

Haggis is a much ignored piece of Scottish produce, wheeled out once a year with watery, overcooked neeps and tatties. I’ve never been a big fan of haggis, it seems all fat and gristle to me and Vegetarian Haggis just seemed like a silly idea.

However, a wee parcel of vegetarian haggis arrived from Halls of Scotland with an invitation to try. I didn’t just want to have it as it is, I like a wee challenge and an excuse to use haggis in other ways.

Mr Foodie loves Burek, but we didn’t have any filo pastry in the house so some home made shortcrust was whipped up and used instead. This turned out like a Greek style pastie with spinach, feta and herbs giving a different taste to the haggis. I could have sworn I tasted meat in there!

A quick and easy supper dish, or lunch dish. Handy for a picnic as well.
