En Croute (Daring Cooks Challenge May 2013)

Vegetables en croute / Vegetarian Cornish Pasty

Our lovely Monkey Queen of Don’t Make Me Call My Flying Monkeys, was our May Daring Cooks’ hostess and she challenged us to dive into the world of en Croute! We were encouraged to make Beef Wellington, Stuffed Mushroom en Croute and to bring our kids into the challenge by encouraging them to create their own en Croute recipes!

Unfortunately I don’t have any kids to encourage for this challenge, but I did consult my bump from time to time…In the early months all it wanted was orange coloured food and lots of potatoes. However, anything wrapped in pastry is almost guaranteed to be tasty, so got bump’s approval.

A rare spurt of energy overcame me, I made vegetarian Cornish pasties, and mushroom green curry rolls (and cleaned the house whilst they were baking in the oven). I even made the pastry from scratch! I slept very well that evening…

  1. You are confirming your domestic goddessness by baking even when made tired by bumpness. I can confirm these en croutes were vary delicious. Hopefully soon you’ll have a kid to help out!
