Prep Time 45 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes


  • 4 portobello mushrooms or 4 large field mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 50 g butter
  • 200 g spinach washed and shredded
  • 160 g mild goats cheese
  • 4 tbsp onion marmalade or fig chutney or cranberry relish or sauce
  • 500 g puff pastry homemade or shop bought
  • Seasoning
  • 2 eggs separated


  • Preheat oven to 200C.
  • Remove stalks from mushrooms and remove any dirt with a damp cloth. Season both sides with salt and freshly ground pepper and rub in 2/3rds of the olive oil.
  • Heat a large pan over medium heat and melt ¾ of butter and the remaining oil. Place mushrooms gill side down on pan and sizzle for 1 minute then flip over and sizzle for 2 minutes. Transfer to oven for approximately 8 –15 minutes (depending on size of mushroom), then lift mushrooms onto kitchen paper to drain, turning over once.
  • In a separate pan melt the remaining butter in a pan, add the spinach then cook for 2-3 mins over medium-high heat until completely wilted. Season with salt, pepper and pinch of nutmeg, then tip the spinach into a large sieve to drain thoroughly. When cool, squeeze out excess liquid.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the pastry out to €1/ £1 coin thickness. Using a cutter or saucer and a larger-size plate, cut out 4 discs about 5cm wider than the mushrooms (for the bottoms) and 4 discs about 10cm wider (for the tops). Re-roll trimmings if you need to.
  • Place the four smaller discs on a baking tray and top each one with a mushroom followed by 1 heaped tbsp of wilted spinach (the spinach shouldn't spread wider than the mushroom).Top the spinach with 1 tbsp (40g) goats cheese and then 1 tbsp onion marmalade.
  • Lightly whisk the egg white with a fork then brush the border (base) of each disc with egg white. Gently stretch the larger disc over the mushroom, trying not to trap any air. Press the pastry together with your fingers, then form a good seal by holding a sharp knife horizontally against the cut edge and gently tapping the pastry all round.
  • Make a fluted edge by pressing index finger and thumb firmly down on top of the pastry, giving it a slight twist as you move around till all the edge is fluted. Score lightly with a knife to let out any air. Brush each wellington generously with the egg yolk. Bake in oven @ 200C for 25-35 mins until golden and crispy. Leave to cool for a few minutes before serving.

Maggie's Tips

Vegan option: Source or make your own vegan puff pastry. Omit butter (you will need to use extra oil). Goats cheese can be replaced with roasted butternut squash, roasted sweet potato or roasted beetroot.
Gluten free option: Source or make your own vegan puff pastry.
  • You can make your own onion marmalade or source from a nice deli
  • If in a hurry use frozen spinach but make sure to squeeze out excess water and season really well.
  • You can purchase puff pastry in a block or ready rolled sheets. Both work really well.
Top Tip: Try to source puff pastry made with butter. Defrost if frozen.
