Takes 30 minutes • Serves 4

– 2½ tbsp olive oil.

– 450g/1lb leeks, trimmed and thickly sliced.

– 450ml/16fl oz vegetable stock.

– 100g/4oz self-raising flour, plus a little extra for rolling the dough.

– 75g/2½oz fat-free natural yogurt.

– 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves, plus extra to garnish.

– 140g/5oz frozen peas.

– 85g/3oz thick-cut ham, shredded.

– 1 small or ½ large apple, grated.


Step 1:
Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. Heat the half tablespoon of oil in a large pan, then fry the leeks, stirring, for 5 minutes until starting to soften. Add the stock, then simmer for 5 minutes.

Step 2:
Meanwhile, tip the flour into a bowl, make a well in the centre, then add the yogurt, remaining oil, thyme leaves and a little salt. Using a cutlery knife, mix to bring together to a soft dough. Divide into four and shape into rounds on a floured surface.

Step 3:
Stir the peas, ham and grated apple into the leeks, then divide among four individual pie dishes (or spoon into one large dish). Top each with a round of dough (or dot around the large dish), scatter with more thyme, then bake for 15 minutes or until golden and crisp.
