Creamy mushroom and kale puff pastry pillows

These are a delicious treat as the creamy mushroom part is very rich.
I like to serve these simply on their own as a meal on the go or with salad.
I used crimini mushrooms from waitrose but it works well with any variety.

1 pack of mushrooms
1 onion
curly kale
splash white wine
puff pastry
beaten egg

  1. First fry the onions with the garlic in butter til softened
  2. Add wine and let the onions absorb the wine, season with salt and pepper
  3. Add the mushrooms, fry until mushrooms are golden
  4. Add the cream, reduce for 5 mins and set aside
  5. Steam or saute some kale until cooked, season, set aside
  6. Cut puff pastry into squares
  7. Add a spoon of the kale to the middle of a square
  8. Add some mushrooms (not too much juice)
  9. Brush the eggs around the side and place another square of pastry on top
  10. Crimp with a fork to seal and make a small slit in the top
  11. Brush the egg on the top and bake for around 10 minutes or until puffed and golden
