A few of days ago I bought by mistake a box of vegan puff pastry so I decided to prepare a vegan dish. I sliced the potato with the mandolin slicer, I prepared a spice mix blending sea salt, fresh rosemary and chimichurri blend and I shaped the puff pastry and potato slices into roses. I baked the roses in a muffin tin greased with vegan butter spread. For a non-vegan version these beautiful and yummy roses , use regular puff pastry, brush with a slightly beaten egg before baking and grease the muffin tin with melted unsalted butter.
Make these savory roses as appetizer for Valentine’s Day dinner.
