Ingredients
  • 1/2 recipe (leftovers) of my Bean Chilli recipe
  • 1 pack filo pastry
  • olive oil
  • herbs to garnish
Instructions
To make one filo triangle
  1. Slick one sheet of filo pastry with olive oil front & back.
  2. Fold it lengthways- you want a long thin piece of pastry.
  3. To fold into triangles,You want a long thin sheet.
  4. Imagine the sheet is cut into 3rds widthways, (into 3 squares on top of each other) then each square is split into 2 triangles.
  5. Put some filling in the bottom triangle and fold it up. Then fold it back & up, (making sure each bit is slicked with oil) then up again until you reach the top, and press down the edges.
  6. The idea is to create layers of pastry, with slicks of oil between them to make them crunchy & tasty whilst locking the filling inside.
  7. You could just roll the pastry with the filling in, or create a puff if the triangle folding is too much of a faff.
  8. Bake in a moderate oven (Gas Mark 7, 220C ) for 15 mins ( or so) until puffed, crispy & golden
