Goats Cheese Filo Parcels
These pretty goats cheese filo parcels boast a smoky, garlicky courgette filling, topped with crunchy walnuts and tangy goats cheese, wrapped in crisp filo pastry case.
Pies and quiches
Non-stick baking sheet
salt and pepper
(vegetarian if required) crumbled
filo (phyllo) pastry
(4 UK sheets, 8 US sheets)
Preheat the oven to 180C (160C fan, 350F).
Take your filo pastry out of the refrigerator so that it's not too cold and brittle when you come to use it.
Warm 1 tbsp of oil in a frying pan on a medium heat.
Add the grated courgette, garlic, paprika, salt and pepper. Fry for 4-6 minutes until soft and all the liquid has steamed away. Set aside.
Unwrap and unroll your filo pastry. Pre-rolled filo tends to come in rectangular sheets so cut down the centre to create square sheets. (Do not cut US sheets)
Place four square on a clean surface. Drizzle with oil. Don't brush as this can spoil your pastry.
Place another sheet on top of each square at an angle. Drizzle with oil again.
Divide the courgette mix into four equal portions and place one portion in the middle of each square of pastry.
Scatter the walnut pieces on top, followed by the goat's cheese. Season with pepper.
Pull the pastry up around the filling to the middle and squeeze to create four parcels, each with a flower-like top. Drizzle with a little more oil.
Place all four parcels on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until they pastry is golden brown.
