Leek, mushroom & goat’s cheese strudels

Ingredients
500g leeks, thinly sliced
150ml low-sodium vegetable stock
175g chestnut mushroom, sliced
4 large sheets filo pastry
1 tbsp olive oil
85g soft-rinded goat’s cheese or vegetarian alternative
1 tsp poppy seeds

Method
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the leeks and stock into a large pan, then cover and cook for 5-8 mins until starting to soften. Add the mushrooms, cover again and cook for 3 mins, then remove the lid and continue to cook until the juices have evaporated. Tip the veg onto a large plate to cool slightly.
For each strudel, lightly brush half of each filo sheet with some olive oil. Fold the un-brushed side over to make a smaller sheet, 2 layers thick. Brush the edges with a little more oil, then spoon a quarter of the veg along one edge. Crumble over a quarter of the cheese, fold over the pastry edges, then roll up to seal in the filling.
Put the strudels on a baking tray, brush with any remaining oil and scatter over the poppy seeds. Bake for 25 mins until crisp and golden brown.
