  • 400g mushrooms
  • 2/3 large potatoes
  • 1 large white onion, finely diced
  • 1 store-bought rectangular pastry sheet (whichever you prefer from filo, puff, I chose regular shortcrust), or prepare your own
  • 1 shot Cognac
  • veggie stock or water fresh thyme sprigs
  • fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 cup frozen/fresh peas
  • Alpro Light Cooking Cream
  • poppy seeds


  • Possibly the day before, or a few hours earlier prepare the filling by sautĂ©ing 1 large white onion, together with 400g chopped mushrooms and flambĂ© with Cognac. Once alcohol evaporates, add 2/3 cubed potatoes and 1 cup water or veggie stock, season with salt & pepper and let simmer for a few minutes. Add 1 cup frozen or fresh peas and a dash of Alpro Cooking Cream Light to thicken the sauce. Allow to rest for a few hours until its cold.
  • Buy ready-made pastry in a rectangular shape (choose your favourite) or make your own shortcrust and place it in on an ovenproof dish. I placed mine in a bread loaf tin to hold the shape of the strudel.
  • Fill the centre with the mushroom, potato & pea mixture and cut the excess pastry on each side into strips to create a braid by overlapping the towards the centre. Sprinkle with poppy seeds.
  • Place in an oven at 180 degrees, and bake for 20mins or until golden brown, the filling is already fully cooked anyway.
  • Allow to rest for a few minutes, cut into portions and serve.
