4 tbsp softened Butter, plus extra for greasing

2 teasp Freshly Chopped Mint
1 teasp Lemon Juice
Salt and Pepper
4 New Potatoes, (about the size of a large egg) cut into 3mm/-inch slices
12 Small Asparagus Spears
8 Baby Carrots, (about 7.5cm/3-inches long) quartered lengthways
75g/3oz Fresh Peas


1. Preheat the oven to 200C, 400F, Gas Mark 6. Take four pieces of parchment paper about 45cm/18-inches square, fold each in half and cut into the shape of your choice such as a heart or oval or leave as an oblong. See pictures below. Open up the papers, lightly grease one side of each with a little butter leaving a border about 5cm/2-inches wide

2. Place the butter in a small mixing bowl, add the mint, lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix well.

3. Open the paper up, place a layer of sliced potatoes on the buttered part close to the fold, season with salt and pepper then top with the asparagus, carrots, mangetout and peas, seasoning each layer lightly and making sure you leave the border clear.

4. Dot with the mint butter all over, fold over the paper lining up the edges then fold over the edges securely so the parcels are well sealed but leaving enough space so they can puff up during cooking. See pictures below showing on how to assemble papillote parcels. Place the parcels on a baking tray and bake for 15-18 minutes.
