Instructions: Savory strudel with broccoli rabe and potatoes
For this recipe you must previously cook your potatoes (leftover boiled potatoes are perfect for this recipe) and drain your frozen broccoli rabe. If you use fresh broccoli rabe you need to clean them and blanch in salted boiling water.
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.
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).
Add boiled potatoes and diced cheese and fold the 2 outer sides of the puff pastry towards the center.
Fold the down part over and roll it all together to create your strudel.
Place on a baking sheet covered with baking paper with the closing part facing down and brush the roll with some milk. Cook in a preheated static oven at 200 °C for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.
