  • 450ml vegetable stock
  • 100g self-raising flour, plus a little extra for rolling the dough

Look for the mixed ends of ham on your supermarket’s deli counter. Cheaper than buying freshly cut, they’re a great buy when you don’t need large slices and just want to shred the ham for cooking.


  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat ½ tbsp oil in a large pan, then fry the leeks, stirring for 5 mins until starting to soften. Add the stock, then simmer for 5 mins.

  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 4 and shape into rounds on a floured surface.

  3. Stir the peas, ham and grated apple into the leeks, then divide between 4 individual pie dishes or one large dish. Top each with a round of dough, scatter with more thyme, then bake for 20 mins until golden.
