Comfort Food: Mozzarella and Winter Green parcels

Recipe by Delicious MagazineDifficulty: Easy


Total time




  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 4 garlic cloves, finely sliced

  • 300g winter greens (such as curly kale, cavolo nero or colourful Swiss chard), trimmed and chopped

  • 500g pack puff pastry

  • 2 x 125g balls mozzarella, chopped

  • 70g pack Parma ham, shredded


  • Heat 2 tbsp olive oil and a knob of butter in a pan and very gently the garlic for a couple of minutes. Add the winter greens and cook very gently for 10 minutes, until completely wilted and tender. Place in a colander to drain and cool.
  • Roll out a 500g pack puff pastry on a lightly floured surface to a 32cm square, then cut into 4 x 16cm squares. Place on a baking sheet and chill until needed.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/ gas 6. Mix the cooled greens with the mozzarella and Parma ham. Season well and pile into the middle of each pastry square. Bring the pastry edges together, squeezing gently to form parcels. Brush with beaten egg mixed with 1 tbsp cold water, then chill for 10 minutes.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden and risen, then serve with a tomato and red onion salad.
