Method

 
Heat the olive oil and butter in a frying pan and add the butternut. Sauté until lightly browned, add a large spoonful of water and simmer until it’s just cooked but still firm and cube-shaped.

Season with salt, pepper and a sprinkling of sugar then transfer to a mixing bowl. Allow to cool then add mozzarella and blue cheeses, parsley and crumbs and mix lightly.

Place the puff pastry on a floured board and spoon the butternut mixture along the length of the pastry. Roll up like a sausage roll with the filling in the middle and press the two ends closed.

Place the strudel on a greased baking sheet with the seam at the bottom. Brush all over with the egg mixture then using a sharp knife, make 8 small slits on top of the strudel. Sprinkle with pumpkin pips (if using).

Bake in the oven pre-heated to 190ºC for 20 – 30 minutes or until the pastry is golden and crisp.

Slice through where the slits were made and serve warm, garnished with rocket.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
