Goats Cheese and Aubergine Windmills


  • 1 Jus-Rolâ„¢ Puff Pastry 127mm Square, thawed
  • Beaten egg to glaze
  • 25-30 g Slice of goats cheese from a small crotin of goats cheese
  • 1 Slice roasted aubergine
  • 1 tsp Pesto or tapenade
  • To serve - onion marmalade or pesto

Equipment required

  • Baking tray
  • Pastry Brush


  1. Preheat oven to 220°C/425°F/Gas Mark 7
  2. Place the pesto or tapenade in the centre of the pastry square, and top with the aubergine slice with the slice of cheese on top.
  3. Make cuts from each corner into the centre, stopping at the filling, and brush edges with the glaze. Bring one corner into the centre, press down lightly, then repeat with every alternate corner so that you create a 'windmill' effect.
  4. Glaze the top and bake for 12-14 minutes until pastry is risen and golden and the cheese just melting. Serve with in season vegetables and a small side dish of onion marmalade.
