Method

  1. Fry the onions in 50g of the butter in a large pan. Add the sliced flat and chestnut mushrooms, then soften for 5 mins. Stir in the shiitake mushrooms and garlic, then turn up the heat and cook quite fiercely to drive off as much moisture as possible. Stir in the Madeira, tarragon, breadcrumbs and tomatoes, then take the pan off the heat.
  2. In a separate pan, cook the button mushrooms and pine nuts in the remaining butter until the nuts are golden. Add to the mushroom and tomato mixture, then cool.
  3. Lay a sheet of filo on the work surface and brush with oil. Top with another sheet, brush again, then continue until you have a stack of 4 sheets of pastry. Spread half the filling down the longest length, leaving several cms at each end. Fold the pastry ends up over the filling, roll up like a cigar, then carefully lift onto a baking sheet. Brush with more oil, then tear the last filo sheet into strips, scrunch up and place half on top to decorate. Repeat with the rest of the pastry and filling to make a second strudel, then chill until ready to cook. Can be made 1 day ahead.
  4. To serve, bake in a preheated oven at 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 for 30 mins or until golden and heated through. Serve in slices, scattered with extra pine nuts and tarragon, with the Madeira sauce.

I am just looking through my old Good Food Magazines - for those who asked, according to the magazine, neither the strudel or the madeira sauce can be frozen. (A bit late, I know!!)

A really good veggie dish, I served this to a vegetarian dinner guest and everyone else( meat eaters) was curious about it to.I made the filling and sauce in the morning and assembled everything just before guests arrived. I could,t get shitake mushrooms so added dried mixed ones, always loads of flavour in them. Wasn't too sure about the sauce so made a mild mustard sauce too, both were used up.

Made this again and the second time added a little bit of tomato puree to the mushroom mix too - just seemed to bring it together a bit more and add depth of flavour!

Great dish, I served it for two so halved the recipe and then made a smaller individual strudel each which worked well! Madeira sauce was particularly tasty.

I halved the recipe to make one strudel for two of us and it turned out to be enormous. I thought it'd make four or five portions however it was so moorish we went back for more. Great recipe and easier than it looks.

I should mention that I use chestnuts instead of the pinenuts, as a seasonal alternative.

I've successfully frozen this. I'm about to make it for the third Christmas, as it goes down so well with the meat eaters on boxing day, too.

I want to make this for my veggie daughter for Christmas but as the person previously asked is this freezable?

My husband is a vegetarian,and I wanted to do a special meal for his birthday,so I invited a couple of friends around who are meat eaters like me,so I never told them the menu I left it as a surprise and the best thing is you could prepare it the day before-it was fantastic my husband and guests loved every mouthful,it was a lovely recipe to follow.I wish to thank you for making me feel like a top chef.and can not wait to try other recipes.x

I made this the other night for a dinner party for vegetarian guests. It went down really well. I made it exactly as the recipe suggested - more than enough for six people. I served it with a simple rocket salad. Perfect!
