Recipe: Vegetables In Puff Pastry
Buy or make your own puff pastry. If you buy make sure it is all butter and no other type of fat.
Roll out the puff pastry to about ¼ of an inch thick and cut a square or any shape you choose. Brush egg wash on the surface of each piece of puff pastry. Let rest in the ridge for about an hour. Then put in a 350°F pre-heated oven for 20 to 25 minutes untill the dough is fully baked. Set aside to cool.
Egg Wash : 1 egg beaten with a pinch of salt
Use seasonal vegetables from your local farmer’s market. Here’s what I used for the Vegetables in Puff Pastry in this photo which we got at the Dijon Market :
- 4 – Large Carrots
- ½ pound – French Green Beans
- ½ - Celery Root (celriac)
- ½ pound – Wild Mushrooms
- ½ Stick – Butter
- Salt & epper
Cut the carrots and celery root to the size of the green beans. Boil or steam the vegetables seperately. Cook the mushrooms in a pan till done then add the other vegetables to heat them up gently with the butter. Season with salt & pepper. Warm up the puff pastry in the oven, split in two, fill with vegetables and put the top on. Serve hot. Serves 6 people.
