Apple and Rhubarb Pie

We’re so lucky in winter with all the juicy apples that are in season. The red, green and my very favourite variety - the sweet yellow ones. I love baking them into a pie but for a healthier twist, I add chunks of rhubarb and sultanas to sweeten the pie rather than adding traditional table sugar. 

Serves:
Prep time: 10 mins 
Cook time: 45 mins

Ingredients
1 kg apples
1 bunch rhubarb 
½ cup sultanas
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup boiling water
¼ cup nut meal
1 sheet all-butter puff pastry
Method
 
Step 1:
Preheat your oven to 180°C and start peeling, coring and cutting each apple into 8 pieces. Once chopped add them to a 25cm pie dish.

Step 2:
Cut the rhubarb into 2cm pieces and add it to the apples.

Step 3:
Add the spices, sultanas, water and nut meal to the apple and rhubarb mixture and stir through.

Step 4:
Now slice the sheet of puff pastry into 3cm strips and top the pie in a lattice pattern. I find it easiest to lay the pastry all one way and then turn the pie to lay it the other way.

Step 5:
Pop the pie into the oven for 45 minutes or until the apples are soft and the pastry is a lovely golden colour. Serve pie warm with a generous spoonful of low fat yoghurt.
