"As always, there's a fridge full of leftover turkey after Christmas and I want to turn it into some exciting and tasty party food for my guests." - VeeTee Member, Gareth Deacon.

What you need to get


  • 1 tray VeeTee Basmati Rice

  • 250g cooked turkey, finely shredded

  • ½ tsp dried sage

  • 3 tbsp cranberry sauce

  • 100ml chicken stock

  • 6 sheets of filo pastry

  • 60g butter, melted

  • 150g Brie, chopped into 6 pieces.

  • salt and pepper to taste


What you need to do


  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/gas mark 4.

  2. Place the VeeTee Basmati Rice, turkey, sage and cranberry sauce in a large bowl. Add the stock and mix thoroughly until absorbed. Season to taste.

  3. Take a sheet of filo pastry, cut in half and cover one side with melted butter.
    Place the other half diagonally across the first to make a star shape and brush the edges with butter.

  4. Place a spoonful (approx 75g) of the rice mixture in the centre of the pastry star and top with a piece of brie.

  5. Lift the edges of the pastry over the mixture and pinch at the top,
    so the mixture is in a small parcel, brush again with buter and place on and oiled baking tray.

  6. Repeat to create 5 additional parcels and bake for 25-30 minutes,
    ensuring the middle is piping hot. Serve immediately.
