I may have mentioned this before, but I had never enjoyed cooking prior to having kids. Since then I have found healthy alternatives to foods that we love and of course keeping the cooking component relatively simple.

These would have to be at the top of the list of favourite snacks in our home for kids and adults alike.. it’s a matter of who gets to it first! I love just how many veggies we manage to fit into the recipe and the kids love them!

Cook Time: 25mins in total approx

1 onion chopped
1 tbs rosemary leaves
1 carrot grated
1 broccoli finely chopped
1 can (400grams) lentils drained
1.5 cups created cheddar
1 cup breadcrumbs (we prefer multigrain)
2 eggs beaten
3 sheets puff pastry, thawed

Cook onion & rosemary until softened. Add carrot, lentils & broccoli to the pan.
Once cooked (approx 5 mins or so), take of the heat and cool slightly.
Mix (we use a blender) with cheddar, breadcrumbs & most of the egg. Leave some for brushing the pastry.
Spread the mixture along one side of puff pastry sheet and roll. Brush with egg & you can add sesame seeds (optional).
Cut to desired size pieces and cool in the over for 20mins at 220 degrees Celsius.


Please tag me in your recreations, and hashtag #byirina_m as I’d love to see you guys enjoying them as much as we do!
