Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 \N Onion; finely chopped
1 \N Carrot
1 \N Parsnip
1 \N Leek
1 \N Swede
1 \N Turnip
1 \N Yam
1 \N Lemon; zest of
10 \N Dried apricots; chopped
4 ounces Stilton; crumbled
1 \N Pinches fresh thyme
1 \N Pinches cumin
1 \N Pinches cinnamon
1 \N Pinches allspice
1 pack Filo pastry
6 ounces Melted butter
\N \N Coarse sea salt; (if liked)

Cut the vegetables into batons and blanch in boiling water, leaving firm in the middle. Add the spices to some butter and sweat the onion until soft and transparent. Add the lemon zest, thyme and vegetables and cook for 2 minutes.

Remove from the heat and allow to cool. When cool add the apricots and stilton. Season.

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Unfold the filo pastry, and using a pastry brush, brush 1 sheet with some of the melted butter. Place another sheet on top and carefully rub smooth with your hands. Repeat twice so you have three x two ply sheets. Now brush the edges of the longer sides with butter and join them together to make one big rectangle.

Spread the vegetable mix down the centre and fold in strudel fashion. Brush the top with egg yolk and sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 30 minutes until crisp and golden brown.
