It's party time at our house at the moment with the little Frog turning two this week. So I thought I'd share a recipe that we have been having at parties for years, but at this time of year would be perfect for a lunch or a dinner with a bit of a salad on the side. You could even make them into giant rolls. It's always a hit with both vegetarians and meat lovers alike.

Savoury Rolls

{AKA Vegetarian Sausage Rolls}

source: Sanitarium

420g can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1 small onion, roughly chopped

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander

½ cup rolled oats

1 egg*

½ medium capsicum, finely diced

2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce

2 sheets reduced fat canola puff pastry, defrosted

Milk for brushing


Place kidney beans, onion, garlic and coriander in food processor and pulse until blended but still coarse. Transfer to large bowl. Add oats, eggs, capsicum and chilli. Mix well.

Cut each pastry sheet in half. Spoon mixture down one of the longer edges. Brush opposite edge with milk. Roll, starting from the mixture edge, to enclose filling. Repeat with remaining pastry sheets.

Brush logs with milk and cut each log into 5 even lengths.

Bake in hot oven, 200° C for 20 minutes or until crisp and golden.

Makes approx. 20.

Serve with Sweet Chilli Sauce.

I've obviously sprinkled a few sesame seeds on mine too, just for that extra touch;)

*I have substituted the egg for some grated zucchini when making this recipe for vegans and it works really well and I've brushed the pastry with rice milk.

If it's party food, dessert or a main meal, it doesn't matter.

I like the sound of that recipe and if the kidney beans are all processed then my Mr wouldn't know about them;)Thanks for the yummy recipe. xo

I have a strict 'no sausage rolls' policy but I reckon yours can sneak past, especially as there isn't any nasty sausage inside! Thanks for the tip x

I don't know how I feel about a vegetarian sausage roll. I will have to give this some serious thought. x
