The instruction how to make Brie and silver beet filo cigars
- Preheat oven to 180u00b0C. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Place silver beet in a saucepan. Cover with a lid and cook over low heat for 2 minutes or until wilted. Remove from heat. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool. Squeeze out any excess liquid. Finely chop and place in a large bowl.
- Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat until foaming. Add the leek and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until leek softens. Remove from heat. Add to silver beet and set aside for 5 minutes to cool. Add brie, egg and dill, and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
- Place filo sheets on a clean surface. Cover with a dry tea towel, then a damp tea towel (this will prevent it drying out). Brush 1 filo sheet with melted butter. Spoon 1 tablespoonful of silver-beet mixture along the centre of 1 narrow edge. Fold in the sides and roll up to create a cigar shape. Brush with butter and sprinkle with caraway. Place on tray. Repeat with remaining filo, butter, silver-beet mixture and caraway.
- Bake in preheated oven, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 15 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and set aside for 5 minutes to cool. Serve immediately.
