Vegetable Wellington. Recipe with Thermomix
The ideal to make this vegetable wellington is to use a 35x25 and 5 mm thick puff pastry sheet, but if we have a little more than necessary to wrap the filling, we can cut a strip of dough and make cuts with a pasta cutter to decorate this cake. Don't forget to also brush on the beaten egg decorations.
I really like this recipe that you can make it in advance and give it a hit in the oven just before serving it, because hot is much better. If you don't like any of the ingredients too much, you can change it. I was about to delete the chestnuts and replace them with walnuts, because we don't like them too much, but in the end I made the original recipe with all its ingredients and I assure you that the result was delicious.

We start by preheating the oven to 190ºC. Wrap the potato cubes with aluminum foil with a sprig of thyme, a sprig of rosemary and water them with a tablespoon of oil. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the potatoes are well roasted. Meanwhile, we continue with the recipe and when the oven time is over, we remove them from the oven and let them cool.
In a large bowl, we put the bread cubes and water with two tablespoons of oil. We booked. Put the onion and two tablespoons of oil in the glass and chop 5 sec / speed 5. With a spatula, lower the ingredients to the bottom of the glass. Add the kale, salt, pepper and spinach and sauté 7 min / 120ºC / speed spoon.
Pour the contents of the glass into a strainer placed in a bowl and let it drain and cool (about 30 minutes). We wash the glass. When everything is cold, add to the large bowl with the bread, the potato cubes, the pine nuts, the chestnuts and the vegetable sauce and mix.
To make the lemon duxelle, put the lemon peel and garlic in the glass and crush 3 sec / speed 10. With the spatula, lower the ingredients to the bottom of the glass. We crush again 3 sec / speed 10.
Add the butter and mushrooms and chop 2 sec / speed 7 and set 5 min / 100º / speed spoon. We drain through a fine mesh strainer and put in a bowl with the lemon juice. Let cool completely (approximately 15 minutes).
To assemble the recipe, we preheat the oven to 180ºC. Line a baking tray with baking paper and place the puff pastry sheet on top. Spread the reserved duxelle on top, leaving 4 cm free on all edges of the dough. Arrange the filling on the duxelle in a thick row lengthwise, placing it in the center of the lower half of the rectangle and leaving at least 3 cm free to the edge of the duxelle layer.
With the help of the paper, we roll everything on itself starting from the side with the filling until it forms a roll (without the paper being rolled up with the dough). We press the roller slightly to compact the filling. We paint with the mixture of beaten egg and milk the longitudinal inner edge and the ends of the dough inside.
We close the roll by sealing the longitudinal joint and the ends well. We roll it so that the joint is at the bottom and we paint the entire surface with egg. Bake 40-50 minutes at 180ºC or until golden. We serve hot cut into slices.
With what to accompany the vegetable wellington
The ideal is to serve the vegetable wellington with a varied salad, in this way you will have a great complete dinner or even a second course for lunch. In addition, it is a dish that spreads a lot, since many slices come out of the puff pastry roll. You will love it.
