If you are trying to slim, but still love ‘real food’ then why not cut out all that pastry and do something Filo? Yes, this has a lot of butter in it, and some cheese, but it would be more or less the same if it was made in pastry!
It’s a great dish, and makes a brilliant lunch!
In today’s podcast, Paul and Diana show you how easy it is to make your own.
You will need
2 sheets of filo, cut in half
1/2 leek, chopped
1 large Spring Onion (Scallions)
1/2 Red Pepper
3 slices of Brie from a wedge, each cut in half
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
180 ml milk
25 g butter
Melt the butter and use some of it to butter the filo, which is then put into a well oiled sandwich tin, 20 cm by about 2 cm. Overlap the the filo to make a good base
Preheat the oven to 180C, 350F, Gas 4
Put the vegetables into a pan with the butter and sweat slowly until cooked through
Beat the eggs into the milk and mix in the parsley
Spoon the veg onto the filo, then lay the Brie on top
Pour over the egg and milk and bake for 30 minutes
