It’s night after night of celebrations this week. Picnics, carols, swimming parties. It seems never ending. So to avoid the kids eating 16 straight meals of chocolate, chips and candy canes, these little swirls provide a vague notion of health on these balmy evenings.
Have a great party season, I’ll see you all next year…
Traffic light swirls
3 sheets frozen puff pastry
1/2 cup roasted capsicums
1/2 cup semi-dried tomatoes
125g creamed corn
1 small carrot
Handful grated cheese (mozzarella or pizza cheese is good)
1 small zucchini, grated
Egg, for glazing
Preheat the oven to 200C. Cover two baking trays with baking paper. Separate out the pastry sheets and leave to thaw.
For the red: blitz together the capsicums and tomatoes. Spread over the entire pastry sheet.
For the amber: blitz together the corn and carrot. Spread over the entire pastry sheet. Sprinkle cheese over the top.
For the green: Spread the pesto over the entire sheet. Scatter over the grated zucchini.
Use the plastic backing on the pastry sheets to help you roll them up into a swirl. Cut through the roll into 15-20mm slices. Place on the trays (so they look like little sushi rolls). Brush with egg. Bake 15-20 minutes until golden.
