Think about an Austrian apple strudel but instead of apples, fill it up with flavourful veggies and delicious cashews cheese. Yep, it’s not a dessert but a wonderful savoury pie perfect for any occasion and incredibly easy to put together thanks to the ready to use filo pastry. Worried about the lack of cheesy taste? Problem solved, the delish french herbs Casheese from Gozo Deli and the natural yeast will make the trick! Feel free to have fun changing up the veggies combo and let us know your favourite version!
4 filo pastry sheets
200 gr of spinach
200 gr of mushrooms
2 medium sized peppers
2 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 vegetable stock cube
2 teaspoons of natural yeast
Chilly flakes, if you like it hot!
Salt & Pepper to taste
Refined Sugar-free, contains Cashews
STEP 1) Chop the onions and the peppers in small pieces and the mushrooms in fine slices. Place the mushrooms and the peppers aside. Preheat some olive oil in a pan and once it’s sizzling add the onions.
STEP 2) Boil the spinach for 5 minutes in salted water.
STEP 3) Slow cook the garlic in a medium saucepan then add the mushrooms and keep cooking for about 15 minutes.
STEP 4) Drain the spinach and chop them into small pieces. Let them cool down for few minutes then add them to the pan.
STEP 5) Add the peppers and simmer for 10 minutes. Add veggie stock, salt, pepper and chilly while it’s cooking in order to get the flavour kicking in. To soak in all the spices and ensure that the peppers don’t get burn, add some water to the pan and keep simmering.
STEP 6) Preheat the oven at 200 C. Get a large tray and place some baking paper. Lay the filo pastry across the tray and spread the Casheese evenly all over it.
STEP 7) Place the mushrooms and the spinach first, then cover with peppers and the remaining sauce. Top up with the natural yeast, some more Casheese and spices to taste.
STEP 8) Roll up using baking paper and press gently on the edges.
STEP 9) Do some little holes to let the vapour coming out. Cook in the oven for 20 minutes at 200 C.
STEP 10) EnjoyEat!
