Chargrill Vegetable Pies

What’s great about it:

A delicious and colourful way to enjoy chargrilled vegetables. If you are having a dinner party, try something different by layering the ingredients on top of each other as seen in the image below. Alternatively, place chargrilled vegetables in a dish and top with shortcrust pastry.
