Instructions

Showing a washed leek

Preheat the oven to 200˚C and line a shallow baking tray with baking paper. Wash and dry the leek. Make sure you wash away the dirt between the leaves. You could substitute onion for leek if it is not available in the market.

Chopping a leek

Halve the leek lengthways and then slice it (about 3 to 4 mm wide).

Slicing a few button mushrooms

Clean the button mushrooms with a cloth or soft brush and slice them (about 3 to 4 mm thick).

Sprinkle the flour around the pan and mix it well.

The stuffing of mushrooms and leek pastry is ready

The stuffing is done once it is nice and thick. It takes less than a minute. Leave the stuffing to cool down. Do not overcook the stuffing because we still need to bake the pastries. Overcooked vegetables would lose the texture.

flattening puff pastry with a rolling pin

Defrost the frozen puff pastry according to the instructions on the packing. Then dust the working table with flour and roll the puff pastry into 3 mm thick. You could also use puff pastry sheets. That would save a bit of time and pastry sheets are ready to use in 5 minutes after taking out of the freezer.
