A comforting yet healthy filo recipe. The soft goats cheese, iconic cranberry sauce and sharp red onions work perfectly in this simple but tasty parcel, perfect for a vegetarian alternative.


  • 80g soft goats cheese
  • 2 tbsp cranberry sauce
  • 2 sheets of filo pastry
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Olive Oil


  • STEP 1
    Set oven to gas mark 6 (200 degrees)
  • STEP 2
    Place onions in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave to stand for 10 minutes.
  • STEP 3
    Drain onions well then add and mix in the wine vinegar. Set aside until ready to use.
  • STEP 4
    On a clean surface, cut each sheet of filo in half so that you have four rectangles. Brush olive oil on two of the rectangles.
  • STEP 5
    Place one of the dry filo rectangles on top of an oiled one, so that you have a cross. Repeat for the other.
  • STEP 6
    Spread 1/2 tbsp of cranberry sauce in the centre of the cross, followed by 1/2 the cheese, then a tbsp of the onions finished with 1/2 tbsp of cranberry sauce. Repeat for the other parcel.
  • STEP 7
    Gather up the pastry bringing the corners to the centre scrunching up the pastry at the top to create a ruffled appearance. Lightly brush with oil then repeat for the other parcel.
  • STEP 8
    Place the parcels on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 12 - 15 minutes until lightly golden.
