We make these tasty little pies when we go out to farmers markets for a tasting. We are always asked by customers “do you sell them” as everyone loves the flavour. We use this vegetarian potato pie recipes in two ways. One as simple puffs for a party, delicious and vegetarian. The other is filling small fried pies great for snacking and keep well. Reheat with a microwave and use plenty of Ooft! hot sauce

Meanwhile sauté the onion and garlic in the oil, until onions go transparent, then add geera. Add a little salt if necessary..Stir well, then mix into mash potato, then mix in the Ooft. Leave to cool.
