Hidden Veg Sausage Rolls

Submitted by:
Everyone's favourite sausage rolls, but with sneakily added vegetables and lentils, and made with regular mince, for a healthy alternative.

Preparation time: 10mins
Cooking time: 15mins

Serves: 6


Puff pastry sheets
1 medium carrot, peeled
500g premium mince (ground beef)
1 clove garlic (optional)
½c Onion (optional)
1 medium zucchini
1/3 cup (dried) breadcrumbs
1 can lentils (about 2 cups)

Seasoning as desired (I use approx 1 tsp curry powder *, 1 tb mixed herbs and about 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper)

*Sounds weird, but they don't end up tasting of curry, the curry powder just adds a little flavour.


Chop the vegetables into pieces, then in a food processor, blend the carrot, onion, garlic, zucchini, breadcrumbs and seasoning until very finely chopped (almost pureed), then remove from processor and add lentils and mince. Process to sausage mince consistency. Add the veg mix and the meat mix (if it will all fit in your food processor) and mix until combined. (If it doesn’t all fit, divide the mixtures into 2 parts and mix it in 2 lots.)

Lay out the pastry sheets and cut them in half. Spoon the mince mixture down one side of each half and roll up in the pastry to form one long sausage roll. Cut into smaller sections, brush with egg. Bake at 200°C until golden brown.
