Caramelised onion butternut and brown rice wreath
|1 large sheet
|large red onion
|cauliflower — lightly steamed and diced
|1 1/2 cup
|butternut — cooked
|brown rice — or quinoa, cooked
|alcohol-free white wine
|brown sugar — or honey
|yellow mustard seeds
|cornflour — mixed with 1-2 tbsp water
|garlic salt — to taste
|plant-based butter — melted, to brush the pastry
Add a generous dollop of olive oil to a pan, add in the diced red onion, and fry until fragrant, then add in the spices, balsamic vinegar, garlic salt, and honey. Fry for 5 minutes before adding in the cauliflower.
After another 5 minutes add in the butternut and brown rice and mash slightly with a fork so it comes together, add the Absolute zero Sauvignon blanc wine, and the cornstarch slurry until thickened and remove from the heat to cool.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius, lay out the puff pastry ( you can use two sheets if you like, just link the edges ), use a small cup or plate to measure out the center, slice 4-5 triangles out, to fold over. Use a large plate to measure the outer ring of the wreath, and sliced triangles on the outer edge to fold over.
Brush the inside of the wreath with some chutney, and add the filling in the center of the wreath, using 2-3 tbsp to make it equally thick on every edge. Fold over one of the center triangles, then the outer, repeating until the triangles have totally wrapped up the filling. Cut out stars from the leftover puff pastry and use the vegan butter to make them stick on the wreath, brush the wreath with butter, and sprinkle nutritional yeast on top.
Bake the wreath for 35-40 minutes until golden, and let it cool to lukewarm or room temperature when serving.
