Servings: 6 -8
- 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
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.
