    Default West Coast Brie Strudel

    West Coast Brie Strudel

    Chutney: (or buy something equivalent)

    1 red onion, diced
    1 tbsp. virgin coconut oil (or substitute)
    1 small ripe pineapple, cored and diced
    1 tbsp. fresh ginger, diced small
    1 tbsp. brown or Demerara sugar
    2 tbsp dried cranberries
    1/8 tsp. each of ground clove, coriander, cumin and cinnamon
    In heavy saucepan heat oil, then add red onion. When onion is translucent, add pineapple, ginger, sugar, cranberries and spices. Stir and simmer until slightly melted but still chunky.

    Cranberry Reduction:

    7 tbsp Demerara or brown sugar
    1 cup pure cranberry juice (100%)
    300 g each of organic frozen blueberries and strawberries
    in a heavy saucepan heat sugar and cranberry juice. Reduce until 1/4 volume, liquid should coat the back of a spoon. Add berries.

    Brie Strudel:

    3 small or 2 large apples, finely sliced.
    200 g organic Brie, cut into 16 pieces
    454 g pkg of frozen Phyllo pastry dough, thawed
    200 ml virgin coconut oil, or other oil, melted
    Preheat oven to 375. Lay out one sheet Phyllo, and brush with oil, lightly. Put remaining sheets in a towel so they don't dry out. Place one piece of Brie on the top centre of sheet and cover with apples. Fold 1/3 of phyllo over cheese, then brush with oil. Roll Brie and phyllo over once more and continue rolling to form a small rectangular pkg, brushing dough with oil as you are rolling.

    Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat all above steps until the Brie is wrapped. Place sheet on middle rack of oven and cook until phyllo is golden brown, about 10-12 minutes.

    Place chutney in centre of plate and drizzle reduction around it. Place strudel, whole or cut in half, diagonally, on top of chutney and serve. Bon appetite!

    Does this sound good to anyone?

    No, I haven't. I don't have time at the moment, but I will make it at some point.

    I wanted someone else to make it and report back. And to send me a piece!

    I should have mentioned that the recipe came from the Choices Market newsletter, and their stuff has been good in the past.

    I could actually feel my arteries clogging when I read the recipe. That's probably why it sounds so good. A bit fiddly though.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I've never been much good with phyllo pastry. I made spanakopita once, and it was nothing special.

    Maybe I'll get my sister to make it next time she comes for a visit. She's good at this sort of thing. I can make pie crust, but I doubt I'd have the patience for this if I'm being completely honest with myself.
