Vegan Wensleydale & Cranberry Filo Pillow Recipe

This crisp parcel is packed with very good things indeed, like veggies, nuts, seeds, wine and even vegan cheese! Fabulously festive!

All you need to make this delicious pastry is a saucepan, a mixing bowl, a tea towel, and a pastry brush.

We recommend using a pre-made vegan filo pastry and using this tasty vegan Wensleydale cheese!

Oh and you can double check if your port or wine is vegan-friendly by using Barnivore.

Method

Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Gently fry the onion until it softens, then add the mushrooms and pepper. Continue to fry for another 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  3. Add the port and cook until evaporated.
  4. Mix in the seeds, walnuts and herbs, then season to taste.
  5. Transfer to a bowl, cover with kitchen roll and allow to cool down.
  6. Fold out one filo pastry sheet onto a work surface and keep the rest under a damp tea towel to avoid drying out. Brush with margarine and layer with another sheet.
  7. Put the cool filling onto the pastry so it covers the middle third of the pastry, leaving a 6cm (2¼in) gap at the top and bottom. Crumble the cheese over the filling.
  8. Fold the top over the filling, followed by the bottom and sides. This should leave you with a nicely packed parcel shape. Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes, until cooked.
