Roasted Vegetable Tureen En Croute
Vegetarian in nature, but not Vegan. A good Pate dough or Pate Brisee should be used in the mold. Marinated vegetables and a decent cream cheese, goats Milk Cheese or Boursin will deliver great results.

|Pate Dough • Rolled & chilled|
Slice vegetables with a Mandolin or use an electric slicer. Marinate each vegetable separately, roast them the same way, as time will vary with each.
Any combination of vegetables can be used, the mushrooms are trimmed so that they touch in the mold, (shoulder to shoulder) near the top. The zucchini's and yellow squash are trimmed and sliced lengthwise on a mandolin, as are the Aubergine. This is done so the mold can be lined with the similar vegetables.
