RECIPE: Joe Wicks' American-style Blueberry Pancakes



  1. Melt 2 tablespoons of the coconut oil in a medium pan over a low heat. Chuck in the leek, carrots and mushrooms and cook for 15 minutes until softened but not coloured.
  2. Stir in the cornflour and cook for one minute. Gradually add the stock, stirring constantly, until the sauce is smooth. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the cooked turkey, ham and chopped herbs and spoon the mixture into a medium pie dish.
  4. Preheat your oven to 200⁰C (fan 180⁰C/ gas mark 6). Melt the remaining coconut oil in a small pan.
  5. Unroll the filo pastry and cover with a clean damp tea towel. Put a single sheet on a board and brush with a little oil. Roughly scrunch up the pastry and put on top of the turkey mixture. Repeat with the remaining filo until the top of the pie is covered.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the filo is golden and the pie mixture is bubbling. Get stuck in!
