Tricolore Pastries

Summer is so close I can almost taste it! Which got me in the mood to create something light, quick and easy for pre-BBQ snacks and picnics. This is classic Italian flavours wrapped up in a light puff pastry.

Tricolore Pastries

  • Makes 8
  • Half an avocado
  • 1 raff tomato
  • 1 plum tomato
  • 1 small ball of salted mozzarella
  • a few sprigs of fresh basil
  • 1 ready rolled sheet of puff pastry
  • 1 egg

You can use any tomatoes you like, but I find the ‘posher’ types are much sweeter which works well for this recipe. Slice your tomatoes and avocado thinly and add to your pastry sheet, cut into 8 sections.
