    It’s Meatless Monday-Vegetable Pastry Purses

    Here’s the second of the guest recipes from the folks at Holland House. When I tried this recipe I had enough filling for 2 dozen of the purses using 2 sheets of the puff pastry. They’re tasty and I think would make great appetizers too. My tip this week is for mushrooms. When you get them home from the store and if you’re not going to use them straight away take them out of their original packaging and store them in the fridge in a paper bag.

So on each visit to the supermarket, one of my goals is to find a new ingredient that will do just that. My latest find was smoked cumin. It’s sat on the pantry shelf for a few weeks but I’ve been itching to give it a test drive. Last week I thought I’d add it to this recipe. Don’t worry if you can’t find the smoked variety, regular cumin is fine too. The relish part of this recipe was inspired by the cherry tomatoes, cilantro, and ears of…
