Spices/ingredients to make pasties stand out?

pho_nazi | Nov 13, 2013 09:55 AM

We have a bake-off tomorrow and I'd like to make my pasties stand out, even though it's probably one of the very few savory items already in a bake sale.

Here are some ideas I was flirting with:
-fried tofu subbing for the meat and potatoes
-cellophane noodles as carbs instead of potatoes
-ear or wood mushrooms
-add a bit of thai curry paste

Anything else you would add besides salt and pepper to make it really stand out?
