I love making these parcels for evenings in with friends, or when we have family coming over for dinner. Not only they do they look really fantastic when they're all golden brown and glazed (we call them "mini plaits of tastiness"), but the flavours of the filling ingredients work together SO WELL - it's all honesty a dreamy combination. The veggie pastrami is already quite smoky and has a slightly salty flavour, but the asparagus is dressed in a tangy and herby dressing, which then blends perfectly with the salty hit of of the goats cheese. I would strongly recommend getting a really good goats cheese here too, but you could always swap this for feta cheese if you prefer...
Now don't read that the wrong way! What I mean is, although these parcels are seriously tasty just by themselves, when you've made something so beautiful and moreish surely you want to finish them so that they're practicably irresistible?? Well, even if you don't - I do! And because there is already plenty of outstanding flavours in the parcels you don't need much, so a couple of spoonfuls of some sundried tomato pesto and some fresh basil leaves will completely do the trick. (It also helps to add two extra pops of colour, so it doesn't hurt anyway, right?)
Salty and herby little parcels of joy that are perfect for devouring in the Spring and Summer...say hello to these delicious Veggie Pastrami, Asparagus and Goats Cheese Puff Pastry Parcels!
