A strudel can go either way you know. Savoury or sweet. What can be better than a delicious filling wrapped in an impossible flaky buttery pastry. This is the original non Thermomix version of one of my faves. (Like my kids, they are ALL my faves!)
It makes a wonderful light lunch with salad and crusty bread...uber vego, uber cool, and uber tasty. You can make your own strudel pastry from this recipe if you are really dedicated. The Thermomix version of this appears in The Convenient Vegetarian cookbook which I hope you have by now! Enjoy.
