Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup quick-cooking whole grain blend (such as PC Blue Menu Brown Rice With Barley and Spelt Blend)
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 carrots finely chopped
  • 1 rib celery finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped cremini mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 2 cups shredded cooked skinless turkey breast
  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream (35%)
  • 3/4 teaspoons each salt and pepper
  • 1 sheet (half 450 g pkg) frozen butter puff pastry thawed
  • 1 egg

Method

In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook grains, onion, carrot, celery and mushrooms, stirring occasionally, until grains are beginning to soften and onion is translucent, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and thyme; cook, stirring, until fragrant. Add flour, stirring to coat; cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.

Increase heat to medium-high. Stir in broth; bring to simmer. Cook, stirring often, until thickened, about 8 minutes. Stir in turkey, peas, cream, salt and pepper; bring to simmer. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Divide among four 12-oz (350 mL) mini souffl? dishes. Set aside.

On lightly floured work surface, roll out pastry into 10-inch (25 cm) square; cut into 4 equal squares. Place 1 square over each mini souffl? dish; cut 4 steam vents in top of each. Whisk egg with 1 tsp water; lightly brush over pastry.

Bake on rimmed baking sheet in 450?F (230?C) oven until pastry is puffed and golden and filling is bubbly, about 15 minutes. Let stand for 5 minute before serving.
