Preparation time: 20 minutes, cooking time: 30 minutes ⁠
Makes 4-6⁠

INGREDIENTS⁠

🍒 14-16 black cherries⁠
🍒 1 Tbs coconut sugar⁠
🍒 1 red onion, finely sliced⁠
🍒 1 small beetroot, grated⁠
🍒 1-2 tsp black cherry vinegar⁠
🍒 Filo Pastry Sheets⁠
🍒 Melted @thevegandairy Cultured Butter⁠
🍒 1/3 block @thevegandairy Ashed Chèvre⁠

METHOD⁠

In a saucepan add the onion, sugar, beetroot, cherries & vinegar, and simmer over low heat until reduced, soft and sticky⁠

Cut the filo pastry sheets into 15cm squares. Place one sheet on a plate, brush with melted vegan butter, and repeat 3 times layering 4 squares of pastry on top of one another. Turn the pastry so it looks like a diamond and spoon jam into the centre. Dollop Ashed Chevre & a few walnut pieces on top of the jam. Fold the end of the pastry over the filling, fold in the sides, and brush with butter⁠

Bake in a preheated oven at 180’C until crispy and golden. Serve with a black cherry jam to dip into. Optional: add a few pieces of fresh cherry to each cigar before rolling⁠
