Chicken, leek + mushroom pies

(Makes 10 small pies + domestic bliss)

  • 300g of assorted mushrooms — any of the ones that make kids go “ew!” taste best
  • 1 medium leek
  • 3 white potatoes
  • 2 carrots
  • Frozen peas and corn
  • About 1tbsp of thyme (just the leaves)
  • About ¼ cup of plain flour
  • A couple of cloves of garlic (crush it)
  • 2 cups of chicken stock
  • ½ cup cheap white wine
  • ⅓ cup thickened cream
  • Puff pastry sheets (this is not a health pie)
  • Olive oil
  • Butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 egg (for brushing)
Buy them from kitchen shops I guess
