Vegetable, Goat cheese and Walnut Plait

In ‘Shetland Food and Cooking’ I used ready made puff pastry to make a Flaky Fish Pie. This combination is ideal if you are cooking for vegetarians and the choice of vegetables you could use is endless.


250g ready made puff pastry (all-butter has a better flavour)
2 courgettes – cut lengthwise and cooked with a little butter for 3-4 minutes
2 peppers – cut into quarters, tossed in a little oil and roasted at 220ºC for 20 minutes
2 onions – roasted as above
100g Goat cheese (you could also use Feta)
50g Walnuts
fresh thyme
beaten egg to glaze


Serves 4 – 6

  1. Preheat the oven – 220ºC
  2. Roll out the pastry to a large rectangle.
  3. Place the cooled ingredients down the centre.
  4. Cut slits as shown and brush with beaten egg.
  5. Fold in the top and bottom and overlap the edges to form a plait.
  6. Brush with beaten egg (sprinkle sesame/poppy seeds if you like)
  7. Bake near the top of the oven for about 20 minutes.
