Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Unroll the puff pastry and add it to a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper

Cut the string from the turkey joint, season with a pinch of salt and add it to one side of the puff pastry


Roll the turkey joint up in the pastry (like a sausage roll!) and then pinch the sides together to seal it

Score the top of the pastry with a fork and season with a pinch of salt - this is your turkey wellington

Put the tray in the oven for 35-40 min or until the pastry is golden and the turkey is cooked through (no pink meat!)


Once the wellington is in the oven, boil a full kettle

Remove the tough stalks from the cavolo nero and chop finely

Tip: Bunch up the leaves and roll them like a cigar before slicing!

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic


Peel the potatoes and chop them into large, bite-sized pieces

Add the chopped potatoes to a pot with plenty of boiled water and a generous pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 12-15 min or until fork-tender

Once done, drain and return to the pot to steam dry


Whilst the potatoes are cooking, re-boil half a kettle

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a knob of butter over a medium heat

Once hot, add the chopped garlic and cook for 1 min or until fragrant

Once fragrant, add the chopped cavolo nero with a pinch of salt and cook for 5-6 min or until wilted


Whilst the cavolo nero is cooking, dissolve 1/2 [1] Knorr beef stock cube in 200ml [350ml] boiled water

Once the cavolo nero is done, transfer it to a plate and cover tightly in tin-foil to keep warm until serving

Wipe the pan clean and return it to a medium-high heat with a knob of butter


Once melted, add 1 tsp [2 tsp] flour and give it a good mix up until a sandy-like paste has formed – this is your roux

Stir in the beef stock and add the wholegrain mustard and cook for 3-4 min or until thickened to a gravy-like consistency

Meanwhile, return the potatoes to a low heat with a knob of butter and a splash of milk

Season with a pinch of salt and mash until smooth
