Vegan Harry Potter Pumpkin Pasties

Relive the magic with these Harry Potter inspired vegan pumpkin pasties. Perfect for your next Harry Potter movie marathon or Halloween parties!


Vegan Harry Potter Pumpkin pasties are delicious, prepared with pumpkin and basic spices, great for Halloween parties.



The books and movies may have ended years ago, but Harry Potter magic very much still lives on in our hearts. In a way, it feels like it never truly ended with tonnes of Harry Potter related goodness continually being released.

Back in 2016, I saw Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in London. I remember the exact day the tickets were going to be released. I was at university and my parents were back home and we were all on the ticketing website waiting with baited breath. There were over 8,000 people in the queue ahead of me! You can imagine my relief when my mum called me saying that she'd managed to get hold of a pair.

I also love to see the different locations where the movies were filmed - Leadenhall market, Lackock, Bleinham Palace to name a few. When I visited Edinburgh with my friend for New Year's, we popped into the Elephant House - the coffee shop where JK Rowling wrote her early novels in the back room.

I am looking forward to seeing the Harry Potter in Concert in Royal Albert Hall next month. Luckily, at the same time, they have an installation of 9 giant wands by St Pauls Cathedral to raise awareness for JK Rowling's charity Lumos. The installation also coincides with the release of the next installation of the Fantastic Beasts movies.



As you can probably guess, I'm a huge fan! Even my old school friends associated me with Harry Potter, something we reminisce about to this day. So naturally, my love for the series also echoes in the kitchen!

With Autumn very much here, and in honour of my Harry Potter love, it was only fitting to make Pumpkin Pasties. We've made veggie Cornish pasties in the past but never with a pumpkin filling.

Now I'm not entirely sure if Pumpkin Pasties are meant to be sweet or savoury in the books, I never found a definite answer - so maybe you could let me know in the comments below?

Previously, we made Butterbeer, which turned out really really well and very similar to what was served in the theme park in Florida and the Warner Brothers studio in London.

So back to the pasties - they were actually pretty simple to make, something that surprised me. You just need to give yourself time with preparation but the process itself isn't too taxing. The filling turned out really well - all of the flavours balanced each other nicely and all encased in a vegan pastry. Molly Weasley would be proud.

So, get together with all of your fellow Potterheads and make these Pumpkin Pasties - great for your next movie marathon or eat them hot straight from the oven re-reading one of the books whilst the rain is pouring down outside.

So, here is the recipe for these delicious vegan pumpkin pasties for wizards and muggles alike!

  23. Yum! I made Harry Potter Pumpkin Pasties this year too but they weren't vegan. I love your vegan blend of potatoes, sweet potatoes, onion, and tomatoes. These would be perfect on their own or with a nice bowl of tomato soup. Always glad to meet another Harry Potter fan too! I was able to catch the Cursed Child in NYC this year, but I'd love to go back to London to see it also. I really regret not doing the studio tour when I was in London last year.
