Ingredients

  • 1 pack pre-rolled puff pastry
  • large ball fresh mozzarella
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 10 large leaves fresh basil
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3-4 tbsp grated vegetarian Parmesan to sprinkle

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 220C/425F.
  • Take your puff pastry out of the fridge for 5 minutes and unroll, keeping it on the paper it was rolled in.
  • Cut into squares – you will get 6-8.
  • Slice the tomatoes thinly and pat dry with some kitchen paper. Do the same with the mozzarella.
  • Place a slice of tomato on each square, top with a basil leaf, add a slice of mozzarella and finish with another basil leaf. Season with salt.
  • Bring the two corners together to form a little parcel and wet the edge with a little egg wash to seal.
  • Brush the parcel with egg wash and sprinkle with grated cheese and a little pepper.
  • Bake for around 14 minutes until golden and crisp.
  • Cool slightly before serving.
