Need a super easy fabulous appetizer for your Fall get together? Well, I’ve got one that’s simple, easy, and very tasty! Love the combo of the chard and cashews! When I came up with these I was actually going to use a different nut and when I saw cashews sitting there, I said, why not give those a try!? So glad I did! I hope you enjoy!
Swiss Chard Puffs
What you’ll need:
2 sheets of puff pastry, defrosted
1 lb. swiss chard, chopped
1/4 cup halved or roughly chopped unsalted cashews
salt and pepper to taste
What you’ll do:
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
On a floured cutting board, lay out the puff pastry and cut into 2 1/2 to 3 inch squares and lay on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
In a frying pan, saute the swiss chard in a little olive oil. After about 2 minutes, add in the cashews. Season with salt and pepper to taste. When the chard is soft, dollop a spoonful of chard mix onto the center of each puff pastry square.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the puff pastry “puffs” and turns golden. Serve warm 🙂
I LOVE puff pastry and you recipe looks great and easy. Did you use a premade puff? Or make your own?
I’ve used premade and made my own before. Either will work. Homemade is a little tricky and a little time consuming, but if you are up for it definitely give it a try!
doesnt vegan mean eating nothing from animals? puff pastry is made with butter that is churned from milk that comes from cows. or are you allowed to eat products derived from dairy?
Actually Andy, there are a few companies that make vegan puff pastry and you can always make your own using butter substitutes like Earth Balance 🙂
