These crisp little pastry packages make a great appetizer, served with mint jelly. They are also good lunch box fillers. Red quinoa adds colour to the filling, but white quinoa would work perfectly well. If time is tight, use store-bought filo pastry instead of making your own, although you won’t benefit from the double quinoa hit.
For Cheese and Onion Pasties, replace the grated apple with finely chopped onion, and the feta cheese with mature (sharp) Cheddar cheese.
