Vegetable Tartlet

Tip: This is a great way to use up leftover, cooked vegetables. There are no rules, simply use whatever you like.
* Puff pastry can be purchased in a ready rolled format or in blocks. If purchasing in block form, use 250g and roll out to 5 or 6 mm thickness before cutting into discs. A pastry cutter or small plate can be used as a guide to do this. Place the discs on to a 20 cm baking tray are refrigerate for 20 minutes before baking. For an even, golden-brown glaze, brush evenly with egg-wash (an egg yolk mixed with a tablespoon of milk). Using the tip of a small, sharp knife, score the pastry in opposite diagonal lines to create a diamond pattern. Refer to the finished picture to get a visual impression.
