Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray baking sheet with nonstick or line with parchment paper.
Cook rice per package directions; cool.
Bring pastry to room temp.
Chop all vegetables. Heat olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, onion, broccoli, carrots, green pepper and corn to heated skillet; stir fry vegetables for 5-10 minutes until thoroughly cooked. Remove from heat to cool.
In a separate bowl, combine cream cheese, pimentos, and shredded cheese. Stir in cooked rice and cooked vegetables. Blend well. Salt and pepper to taste.
Unroll dough and cut into 4-6 triangles or use a large dumpling press. Place about a heaping 1/4 cup of veggie rice mixture in center of cut dough. Wet fingers in water, run around edges of dough then fold and press to seal. Place turnover on prepared pan and brush with egg wash.
