  • 500g/1lb 2oz ready-prepared puff pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten, to glaze
  • For the filling
  • 25g/1oz butter
  • 1 leek, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 50g/2oz mushrooms, wiped with
  • damp kitchen paper and sliced
  • 75g/3oz small fresh asparagus spears, ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 100ml/31⁄2fl oz vegetable stock
  • 100ml/31⁄2fl oz milk
  • 4 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • salt and ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas mark 6.
  • Melt the butter in a frying pan, and sauté the leek and garlic, stirring
    frequently, for 2 minutes. Add the peppers, mushrooms and asparagus,
    and cook for 3–4 minutes.
  • Add the flour and fry for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat, and
    stir in the vegetable stock, milk and white wine. Return the pan to the
    heat and bring to the boil, stirring, until thickened. Stir in the oregano,
    and season with salt and pepper.
  • Roll out half of the pastry on a lightly floured surface to form a rectangle
    measuring 38 x 15cm/15 x 6in. Roll out the other half of the pastry to
    the same shape, but a little larger all round. Put the smaller rectangle on
    a baking tray lined with dampened baking parchment.
  • Spoon the filling evenly on top of the smaller rectangle, leaving a
    1cm/1⁄2in margin around the edges.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut parallel diagonal slits across the larger
    rectangle to within 2cm/1in on each of the long edges.
  • Brush the edges of the smaller rectangle with beaten egg, and place the
    larger rectangle on top, pressing the edges to seal.
  • Brush the whole jalousie with egg to glaze, and bake in the oven for
    30–35 minutes until risen and golden. Serve immediately
