Ingredients

  • 500g leeks, thinly sliced

    Leek

    Like garlic and onion, leeks are a member of the allium family, but have their own distinct…

  • 150ml low-sodium vegetable stock
  • 175g chestnut mushroom, sliced
  • 4 large sheets filo pastry
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 85g soft-rinded goat's cheese or vegetarian alternative
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the leeks and stock into a large pan, then cover and cook for 5-8 mins until starting to soften. Add the mushrooms, cover again and cook for 3 mins, then remove the lid and continue to cook until the juices have evaporated. Tip the veg onto a large plate to cool slightly.

  2. For each strudel, lightly brush half of each filo sheet with some olive oil. Fold the un-brushed side over to make a smaller sheet, 2 layers thick. Brush the edges with a little more oil, then spoon a quarter of the veg along one edge. Crumble over a quarter of the cheese, fold over the pastry edges, then roll up to seal in the filling.

  3. Put the strudels on a baking tray, brush with any remaining oil and scatter over the poppy seeds. Bake for 25 mins until crisp and golden brown.

Did this on Saturday evening. Easy to prepare and very tasty. Had no poppy seeds to hand so toasted some sesame seeds and used those instead.

This was a nice and simple dinner. I didn't use the stock but sweated the leeks for 20 mins instead and fried the mushrooms separately so both vegetables would get a more intense flavour. I served it with a green salad and a mushroom sauce but probably wouldn't have needed the sauce as it's quite moist.

Really easy to make, really tasty and looked very impressive! Will definitely make again.

My 10 year old daughter wolfed this down (despite telling me as I was making them that she doesn't like leeks or mushrooms). I thought it was delicious too.

Really loved this!! Agree with above comment, one of the nicest things I've made and I've made a lot of things on here! I used all 250g of mushrooms as I didn't want leftovers and a bit more cheese ( I love goats cheese but it would've even been nice without it!) I used 3 stock cubes with 500ml water which really added to the flavour. May use 2 next time. Would deffo make again and very filling for just over 200 cals!!

Disappointing, a little on the boring side, my husband enjoyed them though, but don't think I'll bother making them again - if he likes them - he can make them!

I did not have enough leeks so made up the rest of the quantity with celery and added tarragon. You need to work quickly with the filo pastry and there was too many veggies left over in the end but we enjoyed them & turned the leftovers into soup!

I thought these were a bit dull. Next time I would make them much smaller, so that they were almost canape size, and I would add herbs. Having said that, there probably won't be a next time!

This was delicious. Don't be put off by the huge pile of leeks you seem to have at the begining, they all wilt down. We had it with couscous with almond and grated carrot. Definately would make this again.

This is one of the nicest things I have ever made. I had enough filling to make some extra ones too... which i had the next day for lunch. Delicious!!
