Savory strudel with broccoli rabe and potatoes Directions

  1. For this recipe you must previously cook your potatoes (left over boiled potatoes are perfect for this recipe) and drain your frozen broccoli rabe. If you use fresh ones clean them and blanch in salted boiling water.
  2. Heat a tablespoon of oil. Add broccoli rabe, garlic clove, chilli (fresh or ground), a pinch of salt and cook in the pan to remove the excess water and make them more flavorful. Turn off the heat and set aside.
  3. Roll out your puff pastry (I advise to remove it from the refrigerator 10 minutes before) and add your broccoli rabe (discard garlic and fresh chili).
