method

1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 6/200ºC/fan 180ºC. Gently caramelise the onions in the butter and sugar for 25 minutes, then remove from pan and let cool.

2. In the same pan, sweat the red onion and garlic in the oil for 15 to 20 minutes. Add the mushrooms and herbs, lemon juice, marsala and stock, and cook on a low to medium heat for 10–15 minutes.

3. Process nuts in food processor. Add the onion and mushroom mixture, blend until smooth and transfer to a large bowl. Add the breadcrumbs, half the beaten egg and season to taste.

4. Roll the pastry into a rectangle and place on a greased and floured baking sheet. Spoon the onions down the middle, and top with the filling mixture.

5. On either side of the filling, cut the pastry into diagonal strips around 2cm (¾in) wide. Fold these over the filling in a plait shape and tuck in the ends.

6. Brush with egg and cook for 40 minutes until golden. Serve with carrot and parsnips roasted in olive oil and some maple syrup, roast potatoes and green vegetables, plus vegetarian gravy made from butter, olive oil, flour, onions, redcurrant jelly, red wine and vegetable stock.
