1 tsp vanilla extract

Ready rolled puff pastry (at room temperature)

150g pistachio nuts, chopped

Roast until just tender with the tip of a knife.

Leave to cool, drain juices and reserve for later.

Unroll the puff pastry and cut into three equal rectangular pieces.

Score a border 1.5cm inside the edge of the rectangles.

Transfer the three rectangles to a baking tray covered in greaseproof paper.

Arrange the roasted rhubarb pieces within the border of the rectangles.
