EAT: RENATE'S VEGETARIAN SAUSAGE ROLLS
MAKES 40 | PREP 15 MINS | COOKING 25 MINS | VEGETARIAN
At a friend's daughter's birthday party, she served these sausage rolls. OMG - they were to die for! I made a bit of a piggy out of myself, because I couldn't stop eating them! Renate shared the recipe (she's that kind of friend!), and it's on our table a lot. The recipe makes enough to freeze (makes 40), but they don't last that long at our place.
Hubby doesn't even think they're bad. And dipped in sweet chilli sauce... delish!
1 cup pecan nuts
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
2 cups low fat cottage cheese
1 cup rolled oats
5 sheets puff pastry
sesame seeds for topping
1 In food processor, finely chop onion and pecans. Add eggs, soy sauce, breadcrumbs, carrot and cottage cheese. Process.
2 Place mixture in a large bowl and add oats.
3 Cut each sheet of pastry in half. Brush all edges with milk. Put mixture in a sausage shape lengthways down each half sheet pastry. Roll up into long sausage shapes. Mark each sausage into four with flat side of a knife. Don't cut through as filling doesn't set until cooked. Brush tops with milk. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
4 Cook in a moderate oven (180 degrees celcius) until brown and crispy. Serve with the sauce of your choice (oh, and a salad).
