Ingredients
For the pastry dough
  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick chilled unsalted butter, diced into ½-inch cubes (keep the cubes in the freezer for at least 10 minutes before using so they’re really chilled)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening, chilled
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons ice water
For the Filling
  • 1 cup button mushrooms, chopped
  • ¼ cup shelled edamame
  • ½ cup snap peas, halved
  • ½ onion, diced lengthwise
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste
Others
  • ½ cup grated truffle gouda
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • Extra flour for dusting/rolling
Instructions
Make the pastry dough
  1. Mix the flour and salt and put in a food processor.
  2. Add the chilled butter cubes and pulse a few times to combine.
  3. Add the shortening and pulse a few more times, until the dough resembles a coarse cornmeal, with some small pieces of butter.
  4. Slowly add the ice water, a tablespoon at a time, pulsing after each addition. The dough should stick together when you press it between your fingers.
  5. Place the dough on a clean surface and mould into a ball using your hands.
  6. Sprinkle with a little flour, wrap with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Make the filling
  1. Heat oil in a pan.
  2. Add the onions and garlic and sauté till brown.
  3. Add all the vegetables and spices.
  4. Cover and cook on medium flame till the mushrooms have become tender.
  5. Remove cover, sauté on high flame to remove any excel liquid.
  6. Remove from heat and keep aside to cool.
Put it together
  1. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to ¼ inch thickness. You can also roll it our in-between cellophane sheets in case it’s sticking to your surface. Cut off the edges and make a rectangular shape.
  2. Butter the surface, top with the mushroom mixture and then some cheese.
  3. Sprinkle with black pepper and roll the dough into swiss roll like shape.
  4. Using a sharp knife, cut 1 inch thick rounds from this and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  5. Grease a baking dish and bake the wheels at 350 deg F (180 dec C) for 20-25 minutes, or till the dough has cooked and begins to brown.
  6. Cool slightly and serve warm or at room temperate.
