Vegetables Wellington

Recipe by Kitchen Kozy

Vegetarian Times Chef's Challenge 2008 -- Best Entree -- This is delicious, but the recipe makes waaaay too much filling. They tell you to make 8 rectangles and put 2 Tbsp of filling in each one, which means you only need 16 Tbsp = 1 cup of filling. Clearly just a pound of asparagus alone makes more than 1 cup. So... either reduce the filling or plan on having extra for a side dish another night! Other veggies that are yummy in the filling are zucchini, yellow summer squash and sun dried tomatoes (in oil, drained). I also found it more convenient to make 6 larger rectangles than 8, which would have been awkwardly shaped, in my opinion. And we skipped the tomato sauce as well.

This was absolutely amazing!! I made this for me and my vegetarian family members on Christmas and even my meat eating family members were raving about it!! I told them it was for non meat eaters only ;) But they were begging to try it since it looked so good! I will definitely make this again. Everyone loved it so much they all wanted the recipe. I made this pretty much exactly as the recipe said and it was great! I did have to just do a little guess work with the pastry dough as I couldn't get it in the amount specified. I just put it in stretched a little and had to do a little patchwork, but you would never be able to tell when it was finished. The sauce was an excellent compliment!
