Mushroom and Sundried Tomato Bites

Are you looking for a quick and simple finger food that will impress your guests? These mushroom and sundried tomatoes are super tasty and only take few minutes to prepare. They can be served straight from the over or chilled up to few days after as a tasty snack.

To make the filling you’ll need to dice the onion, peel the garlic, chop the mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes. Throw everything into a pan and cook until the onions are soft. Leave aside for few minutes to allow the filling to cool. This will help to manage the puff pastry better and it will be easier to transfer it over to a baking tray later.

While the filling is cooling, roll out the puff pastry and cut it into squares. You can either do what I did and divide the pastry into smaller squares or go bigger. I personally find, with smaller squares the final dish is easier to grab and there is more of it to go around!

Once you have your squares measured out place a spoonful of the filling in the center of the pastry and fold the pastry over to create a triangle. Dab the edges that will be in contact with water/soya milk to help the pastry edges stick together. With the use of a fork or your fingers press the pastry around to secure the edges.

I like my bites to have a golden, crispy colour when baked. If you are using vegan puff pastry, you can use a bit of soya milk (or other alternative) to help bring out the colour.

If you are using regular pastry, a thin layer of mixed egg will work well too. If you don’t have any milk or eggs handy, don’t worry as they will come out well without it too!

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make the bites:

  • 1 Pack of Puff Pastry
  • 1 Medium Red Onion
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Pack/ 300g of Mushrooms 
  • 285g Sun Dried Tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp Oregano
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper for seasoning
