One of my favorite ways to show my love is through a home cooked meal. This Vegetable Wellington is a sexy meal to please vegans and carnivores. Filled with leeks, artichokes, and sun-dried tomatoes, it is big on flavor, but not too heavy to weigh you down – perfect for a romantic evening for two!
- 1/2 cup olives, pitted
- 12 garlic cloves
- 1 can artichokes in water drained
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes
- 2 cups broccoli florets
- 1 package cremini mushrooms
- 1 sheet vegan puff pastry dough I use the brand, Aussie Bakery, available at Whole Foods
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
Thaw puff pastry according to package directions, about a half hour before starting.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place the garlic cloves, olives, and all the vegetables on a roasting pan. Toss with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven.
Unwrap dough on a non stick cookie sheet or jelly roll pan. Stretch and roll dough out slightly to give more length to the pastry.
Spoon half of the vegetables into the middle of the pastry dough lengthwise, leaving about a 1/2 inch border all around. Reserve the rest of the vegetables to serve on the side.
Take each side of the dough and fold them together forming a seam in the middle. Carefully, flip the Wellington over so that the seam is faced down.
Pinch the open ends together to seal the sides.
Bake for approximately 30 minutes. Slice into pieces for serving.
