These mini mushroom rolls have a deep, umami flavour – covered in crisp flaky pastry and with a few sweet cranberries thrown in for luck, they make the perfect rustic snack.

These savoury little wonders are so full of cheesy flavour and impossibly moorish. “I can’t believe they are vegan”, said David.
They look so cute on the plate! The port and mushroom together, create and earthy, rich flavour, with the caramelised onions lifting that with sweetness at the end, it is a gorgeous thing to behold.

Making pesto from scratch is super quick and easy and this recipe will leave you with lots of leftovers to perhaps mix into a delicious pasta dish. In this recipe you will make green and red pesto, very christmassy eh?
