This is an easy and healthy(ish) savory puff pastry recipe, which is quick to make when you are pushed for time. Kids love helping to make these savory pastries, as they can choose which ingredients to add, the toppings will be the deciding factor in how healthy your version is. Helen was inspired by a Sally Bee Bikini Promose recipe, it's also very similar to one that we used to make in cookery class.
320g packet of ready rolled 'light' puff pastry.
2 - 3 tablespoons of tomato purée.
50g cheddar cheese.
Small handful of canned sweetcorn - drained.
pinch of oregano to season (you can use mixed herbs instead).
Preheat oven to 220c/gas mark 7
Line baking tray with baking parchment.
Carefully unroll the pastry onto the baking tray.
Score around the edges with sharp knife (roughly 1cm from edge) - do not cut right through.
Spread the tomato purée within the border of the pastry.
Sprinkle on the cheese, onion and sweet corn.
Add any other toppings that you fancy, the options are endless Helen has used a mixture of ham, red onion, pepper, tomatoes, mozzarella instead of cheddar and salami (although this will add to the fat content). You can of course go for a vegetarian version.
Add a sprinkle of oregano or mixed herbs.
Place in oven and bake for around 20 minutes until the pastry is golden and risen.
This amount of pastry can either make one large version or you can divide into four, add a side salad to finish.
