  • Roll out the puff pastry into eight circles, 10 cm (4 inches) in diameter.
  • Roast the mushrooms in half the oil. When they are half cooked, add half of the garlic and half of the shallot. Remove from heat and let cool. Chop finely and set aside.
  • Fry the veal in the other half of the oil until it is nicely browned. Add the mushrooms, and the rest of the garlic and shallot. Add the parsley, cheese, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Place a quarter of the mixture in the middle of four pastry circles and brush the edges with the beaten egg before placing a second pastry circle over top. Pinch the edges well to ensure there are no gaps. Bake at 400°F (200°C) for 15 to 20 minutes or until brown.

Creamy Swiss chard

  • Brown the garlic and shallot in oil. Add the Swiss chard and slowly bring to a simmer. Add the cream and cheese and season. Cook over low heat for 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Serve the puff pastry on a bed of creamy Swiss chard.
