Ingredients

1 red pepper & 1 yellow pepper; cut into chunks

3 medium courgettes; sliced into thick coins

200 g asparagus; cut into chunks

1 garlic clove; peeled and chopped

Olive oil

Sea salt

Black pepper

400 g packet puff pastry

2–3 cups (300 g) brown & white Turducken meat; shredded

Parmesan cheese; shaved, for garnish

Method

Pre-heat the oven to 200 ºC.

Toss vegetables and garlic in a roasting tray, season and drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 20 min. Take out of the oven to cool.

Meanwhile, unroll the puff pastry and cut into 6 rectangles.

Arrange pastry rectangles onto a sheet of baking paper, and slide onto a baking tray. 

Score a 1 cm border around each rectangle, and bake at 200 ºC for 10–15 min. until puffed up and golden brown.

Remove from the oven and lift out the middle square to make a cavity.

Fill the cavity with the Turducken meat and roasted veggies.

Top with shaved Parmesan.

Serve with a bowl of lemony mayo on the side.
