Vegetarian Potatoes Pasties (with Ajvar, onion and Gouda cheese)

A few days ago I baked my yummy Swedish Falun sausage Pasties. Now it’s time to share a vegetarian recipe of pasties which I have baked a few days ago. I name them Vegetarian Potatoes Pasties. I got some of my inspiration from a Turkish dish I have eaten lots of times before. It looks like a square pizza slice with ingredients on such as potatoes and cheese. 😀

Hope you all will enjoy these pasties. I can really recommend them, because they are very, very tasty! Yum! 😀

Recipe (makes 35) 


  • 16.6 dl plain flour
  • 250 gr butter
  • 50 gr yeast
  • 5 dl whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 2 ½ teaspoons salt


  • 900 gr potatoes
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 4 tablespoons Ajvar
  • 700 gr Gouda cheese
  • (25 gr butter for the frying)

For brushing 

  • 1-2 eggs


Mix the yeast with the lukewarm milk.

Add the caster sugar and salt.

Cut the butter into smaller pieces and put them into the same bowl as the ingredients above.

 Save 2 dl of flour for later and pour the rest of it into the bowl.

 Work and kneed everything all together for about 10-15 minutes until you get a smooth and firm dough.

 Cover the bowl with a tea towel and let the dough rise for about one hour.


Cut the onion and the potatoes into small pieces.

Heat a large pan of water, add the potatoes, then cook for 8 minutes until just soft.

Meanwhile, heat the butter in a frying pan.

Fry the onion until soft. Add the Ajvar, then fry for a few minutes more.

Mix the cooked potatoes and the onion mixture in a large pan until everything is just incorporated.


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.

Make 35 small balls of the dough.

Roll out each of them pretty thinly.

 Add about 2 tablespoons of filling and 1 slice of cheese on one of the dough’s sides.

 Fold the “empty” dough side over the filling so it looks like a crescent. Pinch it tightly with your fingers, and in the end, with help of a fork “pinch” it a bit more.

Place the pasties onto the parchment paper (or just grease the baking sheet)  on a baking sheet and brush them with eggs.

 Bake the pasties in the middle of the oven for 15-20 minutes.

 Let them cool a bit before being served.

Happy Potato Pasty Baking! 😀
