This recipe isn’t from a cookbook, my dad randomly told me to make these because he wanted to use up the remaining pastry we had in the freezer, but it is really delicious and requires ingredients that most people have in their house.
Ingredients: (makes 12)
- 3 puff pastry sheets
- 400g lentils
- 400g bean mix
- at least 12 cubes of cheese (any size you want)
- 1 egg, optional, for brushing on the triangles
1. Lay out the puff pastry sheets on a table or kitchen counter and let them defrost.
2. While they defrost, cut the cubes of cheese and make the mixture of beans and lentils.
3. Cut each sheet of pastry into four pieces, meaning you have 12 squares in total.
4. Spoon out a heap teaspoon of the bean and lentil mixture and place onto the middle of the pastry squares. Put at least one cheese cube on each.
5. Prepare 3 flat oven trays with baking paper and preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
6. Carefully pick up one of the corners of the pastry and bring it over to the opposite corner. Using a fork, make indents on the outside of the triangles to close them up.
7. Place 4 of the triangles on each tray, or as many as you can fit depending on the size of your trays.
8. Whisk an egg and brush it onto each of the triangles. This step isn’t compulsory but it makes the triangles look more golden.
9. Put all the trays in the oven and cook for about 15-20 or until golden brown.
