Puff Pastry Tuna and Vegetable Loaf


A loaf pan makes a wonderful shape for preparing this filled pastry, which can then be neatly sliced to serve. Start by lining the loaf pan with parchment to allow for easy unmolding, and then fit the puff pastry dough in the pan, pricking the bottom with a fork to help it holds its shape and avoid getting soggy during baking. The savory filling includes boiled eggs and broccoli and sauteed canned tuna and grated carrots.
