  • Note: If serving with these Asian Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cashews, you can time both dishes to be ready at the same time. You can cook them on separate trays or on the same tray. If cooking on the same tray, start by cooking the Brussels sprouts first, then after 10 mins add the mushroom wellington, followed by the cashew 10 mins later. See the recipe introduction for the link to my recipe for Asian Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cashews.
