Serves 6-8

Ingredients
Method

Before you start

Preheat the oven to 190ÂșC, fan setting | Food processor | Large frying pan | 2 baking trays | Cling film | Large mixing bowl

Ingredients

For the filling

  • 1 large butternut squash (long and thin butternut squashes are best for this)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt

For the mushroom duxelles

  • 650g chestnut mushrooms, cleaned and halved
  • 180g cooked chestnuts
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 2 thyme sprigs, leaves picked off
  • Salt and pepper

To assemble

  • 2x ready rolled sheets of puff pastry
  • Almond milk, to brush

Method

  1. 1.

    Start the filling | Peel the butternut squash, scape out the seeds and cut in half lengthways creating two big pieces | Keep one half for another recipe and place one onto a large baking tray | Drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt | Mix well to ensure the squash is coated in the oil and roast for 35-40 minutes until soft | Once soft, remove from the oven and leave to one side until needed

  2. 2.

    Make the mushroom duxelles | Place the chestnut mushrooms, cooked chestnuts, garlic clove and a pinch of salt and pepper into a powerful food processor and blend until they make a paste | Place a large pan over a high heat and add a drizzle of olive oil | Once warm, add the mushroom paste and a few thyme leaves | Mix well and cook, stirring every now and then until the paste has dried out, around 5-10 minutes | Once cooked, leave to one side to cool

  3. 3.

    Make the wellington filling | Roll out a large piece of cling film and spread the mushroom mixture on top | Lay the butternut squash half at the edge of the mushroom layer, flat side facing down | Use the cling film to lift the mushroom mixture over the squash to coat it, using your hands to shape the mushroom mixture around the the squash (there should be a fatter end and a thinner end) to make a mummy shape | Twist the ends of the cling film so it holds tightly together | Place in the fridge for 15 minutes to firm up

  4. 4.

    Finish the wellington | Unwrap one sheet of puff pastry onto a large baking sheet, keeping the paper on the bottom | Unwrap the squash and mushroom mixture from the cling film and place on the middle of the pastry sheet, flat side facing down | Brush almond milk a thumbs-width around the edge of the squash

    Place another pastry sheet over the top of the squash and press down around the base where the almond milk has been brushed to seal the two pastry sheets together | Cut around the edge of the pastry, a thumbs-width from the squash to make a neat border - keeping any leftover pastry to decorate the mummy in bandages

  5. 5.

    Make the mummy | In the middle of the fatter part of the butternut squash, use a knife to cut some eye holes out from the 'face', removing the pastry and mushroom layers | Slice the off-cuts of pastry into long thin pieces that can resemble bandages for the mummy | Decorate the mummy with the off-cuts, covering the top in strips placed diagonally across the top, avoiding the eye hole

  6. 6.

    Glaze the wellington | Glaze the wellington all over with almond milk

  7. 7.

    Cook the wellington | Cook the wellington for about 45-50 minutes, until golden and delicious
