Roasted Tomato and Gouda Strudel

strudel; streudel; recipe; tomato; roasted tomatoes; pastry; savory; savory pastry;  cheese; Gouda; roasted; cherry tomatoes; Spicie Foodie; Vegetarian; meatless meals, fast, easy, lunch, snack, Today I have the final roasted tomato recipe to share with you. I actually have more recipes in which I use roasted tomatoes but I don’t want to bore you with non-stop roasted tomatoes. I’ll save them for later on in the year. Anyway back to today’s recipe, it is a savory strudel. The word strudel is German and it defines a layered and typically sweet pastry, but savory strudels also exist. Perhaps the most common sweet strudel is Apfelstrudel or apple strudel. Who doesn’t love a warm apfelstrudel with a big dollop of freshly whipped cream and toped with nuts? Rhetorical question of course.

Here in Prague they make the most amazing savory, and sweet, pastries. The savory are filled with anything from spinach, broccoli, vegetables, cheese to even spicy version they call Mexican style. Oh how I wish I could ship all of you guys a sample of these scrumptious goodies. If you are ever in Prague or Czech Republic make sure you stop by a local pekařství or bakery for a taste. Our favorite bakery has been in that same spot since 1928. Can you imagine all it has seen?

Actually we love to eat one or two savory then finish with a sweet one. So today’s recipe was inspired but those perfectly flaky and heavenly pastries. The recipe really isn’t much of a recipe, it’s really a guide. The combinations are really endless and therefore perfect for everyone. We ate this strudel for dinner with a hearty soup and it was just perfect for the cooler weather. Enjoy it and here is the recipe.

Preheat oven to 200c or 398f. Lay out the pastry dough, make sure it is rolled out to a rectangle or square. In the center line slices of Gouda from one end to the next, leave about 2 centimeters or 3/4 inch from the edges. Next lay roasted cherry tomatoes (or any roasted tomato type) on top of the cheese and all along to the edges. Place basil leaves as desired on top of the tomatoes.

2. Pull up on side of the pastry to cover the center ingredients. Grab, pull up the remaining side of dough and place on top of the covered ingredients. Pinch the side into the dough to make a seal. Also tuck and pinch the sides to make a seal. Using a pastry brush, brush the egg wash over the entire uncooked strudel. Use a sharp knife to make small slits all along strudel.

3. Place in the center of oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and flaky. Allow to cool 10 minutes before serving. Can be served warm or cold.

    Your blog has been a total joy and inspiration. My partner was recently put on a low-sodium diet, and has re-discovered how delicious food actually tastes, and has suddenly taken an interest in cooking. He used your recipe for roasting tomatoes and we have been eating them with everything, he is totally smitten. Last night he added them to some wok-fried veg and added cooked rice noodles. The night before they were mini-pizzas. We are NOT bored, bring ‘em on! I wonder if there is a low-sodium version of puff pastry out there?

      Hi Claire, Wow that is so lovely to hear, thank you:) I’m am glad for you and your partner. It is great to rediscover cooking and to see that it doesn’t have to be boring. Spices are just the best. Low-sodium puff pastry perhaps if you make your own, that way you can use unsalted butter and omit or really lower the amount of salt used in the pastry. Good luck and I’ll keep them coming then.

    Drool. I love pastry sheet and use it often as this is the only “dessert” I can make with. We love Gouda cheese (smoked Gouda particularly) and didn’t think of making this kind of dish with tomatoes (another my fav). Sounds like…all in one just for ME! I’ll be trying this soon. It’s a must!

      Hi Tina, Oh you simply must try roasted tomatoes. I’m sure you’ll love them. They taste great so it is hard to choose what to cook them in because they taste so yummy on their own:)

    I could so go with a slice of that right now. Looks absolutely delicious! I have yet to make a strudel, but I like the twist on it by making it a savory strudel. I will have to give this a try!

    I like this idea and easy too. You can never bore me with too many tomatoes, I could look at them everyday. I’ve been leaning towards more savories these days, I think it’s the fall weather creeping in. Hope you have a great weekend.

    Any thoughts on how many this will serve? I have a dinner party of 12 coming, up. I’ll be serving three vegetable side dishes, salad, soup, dessert, and challah in addition to this. Just checking on whether one of these would allow for everyone to have a piece!

      Hi Sophie, I would make 2 or possibly even 3 of these for 12 people. It sounds like there will be plenty of other foods but this is also light. It is better to have extra leftovers, which taste great by the way, then to not have enough. This one I made for 2 of us for dinner with nothing else and we eat nearly all of it. But you’ll have plenty sides to prevent that. Have a great dinner party and hope your guest have a lovely evening :) P.S. I would serve this with a nice white.

      I just served this to a dinner party of 14. I ended up using two pounds of grape tomatoes, three tubes of dough (one that was marked as “pizza dough” and two as “croissant dough”), about 10 oz gouda, and several large leaves of basil. People raved about the smoky taste of the gouda and really liked the dish overall. I’ll call this a success! Thank you -
