    • Cooking time: 45 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes 60 minutes 10 minutes

    Makes: 12 Serves: 6


    2 x 320g puff pastry sheets
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    ½ tbsp sesame seeds
    tomato chutney, to serve (optional)

    2 tbsp olive oil
    350g grated butternut squash (from about ½ squash)
    50g kale, tough stalks removed, finely shredded
    100g broccoli, finely chopped
    pinch chilli flakes (optional)
    115g baby spinach
    250g ricotta
    200g feta, roughly chopped
    40g toasted pine nuts
    1 lemon, zest


    1. Preheat the oven to 200˚C, gas mark 6. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment. For the filling, heat the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the grated butternut squash, kale, broccoli and chilli flakes,  if using; cook for 4 minutes, or until soft. Turn down the heat and stir in the spinach leaves, in batches, until wilted. Take off the heat, then transfer to a bowl to cool a little. Add the ricotta, feta, pine nuts and lemon zest to the squash mixture, season and stir to combine; set aside.

    2. Cut each pastry sheet in half lengthways. Spoon 1/4 of the filling down the centre of each sheet. Brush one edge of the pastry with a little beaten egg. Fold the pastry over the filling, pressing the edges together to seal. Turn the rolls over, seam-side down, and use a serrated knife to cut each into 3 smaller rolls. Transfer to the lined baking tray, brush with beaten egg and sprinkle over the sesame seeds. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with tomato chutney, if liked.
