Caprese Cheese Straws
with Spicy Sweet Chilli Sauce

Recipe by Megan Daniels (Food Editor and Stylist)
For the cheese straws:
320g puff pastry, sheet
Flour for dusting
200ml basil pesto
10-12 sundried tomatoes, chopped finely
20 mozzarella sticks
1 egg, beaten
For the Spicy Sweet Chilli Sauce:
¼ Cup (60ml) Korean chili paste (Gochujang) or a paste of red chillies, fermented soybean paste, rice wine vinegar and salt makes up this paste.
¼ Cup (60ml) Rice wine vinegar
2 Tbsp (30ml) Selati sugar
1 Tbsp (15ml) Honey
1 Tbsp (15ml) sweet chilli sauce
Preheat your oven to 200C.
Unroll the pastry on a lightly floured surface and cut in half lengthways.
Spread the pesto and sundried tomatoes over one half, pop the other piece of pastry on top to create a sandwich, then cut in half lengthways to create 2 long rectangles. Divide each rectangle into short strips, about 1cm thick.
Place a mozzarella stick onto each of the pastries.
Twist each pastry strip and place on a baking tray lined with parchment.
Brush with egg and bake for 20-25 mins until risen and golden brown.
To make the spicy sweet chilli sauce: Place all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well until combined.
Store in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Serve the cheese straws and the sweet chilli dipping sauce and enjoy!
