  • *Place a piece of plastic wrap on a clean working surface and place the slices of vegan prosciutto on top so that they overlap slightly and form a layer.
  • Scoop the duxelles on top of the vegan prosciutto layer and smooth it out with a spoon.
  • Place the filet on top, brush with the remaining 2 tablespoons of mustard and roll up. Place filet in the refrigerator shortly.
  • Place a sheet of baking paper on the working surface, roll out the puff pastry on it.

  • Roll up the filet, press the overlapping sides of the puff pastry tightly and remove the excess pastry.
