  • 2 1/2 cups of Basmati Rice
  • 3 Brown Onions chopped
  • 4 Cloves of Garlic chopped
  • 1 Tin of Drained Kidney Beans
  • 150g Parmesean Cheese
  • 2-3 Tbs Olive Oil for frying
  • 3 Cups of Beef Stock
  • Borgs Filo Sheets or Puff Pastry Sheets
  • Olive Oil for Brushing sheets
  • Baking Paper to line slow cooker


  • Bean Cheesy Rice Pies/Puffs
  • Line slow cooker with Baking Paper and turn on slow cooker on low for 20 mins
  • Turn onto High Setting just before putting Puffs in
  • Cook 2 1/2 cups of basmati rice or whatever rice u have I do mine in microwave for 20mins and it comes out perfect once cooked I fluff it with fork and let cool a little.
  • Place 2-3 Tbs Olive Oil in Saucepan and add 3 onions and 4 chopped cloves of garlic and then added 1 tin of drained kidney beans then added 3 cups of beef stock
  • Cook on stovetop on medium heat and keep stirring.
  • Once cooked add the rice in and stir in 150g parmesean cheese mix til combined, you can add more cheese if you like just taste to check.
  • Borgs Filo Sheets used 3 per pie as the sheets are big I cut in half.
  • I use a pastry brush and brush bottom sheet with oil and also the top
  • Using a small bowl, place the sheets in and press them into the bowl.
  • If using PUFF PASTRY SHEETS you only need 1 sheet...
  • Lay the sheet on a chopping board and brush some Olive Oil on both sides
  • Add some of the cooled rice mix and fold of the pastry over like a triangle
  • Brush with a little more olive oil if needed
  • These seem easier to use.
  • If using FILO SHEETS...
  • I put the cooled rice mix and push into the bowl so it fills it
  • Wrap pastry so it covers the top and brush with more oil so it doesn't dry out.
  • Turn the bowl over and they pop out
  • Place in slow cooker on HIGH for 2 hours with Tea towel underneath lid and folded over top.
  • I have a 6 Litre Slow Cooker so if you have a smaller one it may need less cooking time. Just keep checking them. Mine turned brown without having to put into oven
