  1. Preheat the oven to GM6 (200C / 400F).
  2. Chop the sweet potato and carrot into small chunks, about 1cm-1.5cm across.
  3. Crush the garlic onto a layer of foil, and sprinkle over the cumin and chilli powder.
  4. Put the sweet potato and carrot onto the foil, and roil them in the spices.
  5. Wrap the veg up completely, so that they bake rather than roast, and put them in the oven for 35 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile roll out your shortcrust pastry to make a rectangle about 12 by 9 .
  7. Break up 100g of feta cheese and crumble it across half of the pastry (leaving a gap of about half an inch around the outside of the filling).
  8. Cut the broccoli into very small pieces and dot in between and over the feta.
  9. When the baking veg comes out of the oven mash it well. If it won't mash, put it back into the oven until it's soft enough to do so.
  10. Spread the mash over the broccoli and feta and then top with the remaining feta.
  11. Fold the other half of the pastry over the filling, and push it down well to seal the pasty.
  12. Wash with egg or milk and bake at GM 7 (425 F / 220C).
