  • 4 sheets filo pastry
  • 15g butter, melted
  • 5 tsp mild olive oil
  • 4 tsp pistachios
  • 100g Asda Greek Feta Cheese
  • Dried apricots
  • 4 tsp Asda Extra Special Apricot Conserve
  • Watercress, to serve
  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Cut out 8 squares (19cm in size) of filo pastry and put them on a tray covered with a clean, damp tea towel to stop them drying out. Mix the butter and olive oil together in a small bowl.

  • Lay a filo square in a bowl and brush with the melted butter mixture, then place another square on top at an angle. Brush with more butter mixture.

  • Crumble the feta and put a quarter of it in the middle of the filo. Roughly chop the pistachios. Chop an apricot and add to the feta with a teaspoon each of conserve and pistachios.

  • Fold the pastry squares up over the filling and gently twist the top to secure it. Place the parcel on a baking tray and brush the outside of the pastry with the butter mixture.

  • Repeat to make another three parcels. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Serve hot with some watercress.
