Handy Hint

This has e very rich flavour and works well s a vegetarian Christmas main course. This is our Christmas main course.



1.Heat oil and butter,

2.Gently fry the celery and apple allow to soften, add the chopped mushrooms, fry some more.

3.Put lid on the saucepan and allow the mixture to cook over a low heat for 10- 15mins, until not too much liquid remains, it should be moist but not soggy.

4.Mix in parsley marjoram and breadcrumbs. The mixture should be dry enough to form a loaf shape.

5.Roll out the pastry enough to cover the cake decorate with pastry holly leaves etc. cut diagonal slashes across the top.

6.Brush with egg.

7.Bake for about 25/30 mins on a baking sheet, or 35 to 40 mins in a loaf tin. Judge when the pastry looks a good colour.

8.Serve with the usual xmas veg and a good vegetarian gravy.

You don't mention breadcrumbs in the ingredients. Or how much to use. Also, you use the word cake instead of adding cooked ingredients onto rolled out puff pastry and fold over.

Whoops it's obviously not dairy free if you use butter or egg free is you brush with egg but they are not essential and you can all work that one out anyway.
