Silverbeet & Ricotta Rolls
250g Silverbeet, stems & leaves (chopped up)
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1½ cups (360g) ricotta
- 1 cup (70g) breadcrumbs
- Any dry or fresh herbs you fancy (we used dry dill & fresh parsley)
- 3 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed and halved
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- Something to serve it with! Chutney, or thick yoghurt with dukkah
- Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F). Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat, add the onion and garlic, and cook for 4 minutes.
- Place the silverbeet, ricotta, breadcrumbs, herbs, salt, pepper and onion mixture in a large bowl and mix well to combine.
- Spoon ½ cup of the silverbeet mixture along one long edge of one pastry half and roll to enclose, ensuring the pastry overlaps by 1cm. Repeat with the remaining pastry and silverbeet mixture. Place the rolls, seam side down, on 2 large lightly greased oven trays lined with non-stick baking paper. Cut each roll into 8 smaller rolls.
- Brush with egg, sprinkle with poppy seeds and cook for 20 minutes or until golden.
- Serve with yoghurt and dukkah.
Gah fat fingers, sorry! My 5 year old loved them the most and asked me to make them again tomorrow. Thanks for the yum recipe!
This is a great way to use up silverbeet! The kids enjoyed them too. My 5I’ll serve it with something next time… I should have read to the end for suggestions for serving!
Just made these for dinner, nice simple recipe. I chose to chop the silverbeet stems and add them to the onion while it was cooking. We will make this again!
