Cabbage Puff Pastry Triangles

Okay so now you will love me because this is a sweet treat but still it is based on veggies! – Good theory, huh?! Seriously speaking, I made these cute cabbage triangles the other day to take some to my grandparents’ place, and my grandfather, who is quite a picky eater, with the (almost) empty box in his hand, told my grandmother: ‘Now give this box back to her, and ask how she made these’. THAT my friends, is a compliment! Of course my Mr loved them too, fresh out of the oven for breakfast 😉

Basic simple recipe, mainly if you have a store-bought puff pastry dough sheet at hand:


1 puff pastry dough (I used 500g)
fried cabbage (easy thingy: shred some white cabbage and brown it on some olive -or any- oil, add some salt, pepper and sugar, takes some time to brown nicely but worth waiting for it. Just take care it likes to burn easily! I use the same cabbage for a family favourite Cabbage Pasta, which is nothing else but square pasta mixed with fried cabbage. Easy, fast and delicious! This cabbage can be frozen without any issues.)
1 egg for brushing
linseeds for decorating the top

1. Roll out the puff pastry sheet and cut it to triangles of the desired size, place a spoonful of cabbage in the middle, fold and close with the help of a fork or fingers. I made some “instructions” for the folding for the visual types:

2. Place the triangles on a baking paper lined baking sheet
3. Brush the triangles with the beaten egg, sprinkle with linseeds (or cheese, sesame seeds…)
4. Pop into the pre-heated oven and bake until golden brown.

Apart from the triangles I made a couple of bow-shaped ones as well, just like the sausage bows:

Careful not to burn your tongue when munching on them straight out of the oven! 🙂
