This is something I've wanted to try for a long time. Because I love all things fall, these barley crust veggie pockets sounded adorable. I couldn't wait to make these. Here is how it went:
First I oven roasted some vegetables. Potatoes, parsnips and carrots with some garlic. I then rolled out my barley crust and cut it into some cute leaf shapes. I placed some veggies on each leaf.
I covered each leaf with a matching pastry leaf and sealed the edges.
I baked the leaves until golden brown. They look cute right?
Conclusion: We had some yummy corn chowder to eat with these little pastries and I tell you what-we needed it. In the end these were pretty dry and not such a treat. They were okay with the wetness of some soup to go with it but probably not worth the effort and I most likely will never make these again. Why is it sometimes the cutest kinds of foods are just not the best tasting?
