Healthy Sausage Rolls


For the filling

1 tsp rapeseed oil

1 chopped shallot

100g green lentils

300g pork mince

50g breadcrumbs

2 tsp chopped tarragon

Pinch of dry mustard powder

Pinch of grated nutmeg

For the pastry

½ x 375g sheet of ready-roll puff pastry

2 tsp semi-skimmed milk, to glaze


Heat oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7.

Heat the oil in a frying pan. Tip in the shallot and fry for a few minutes and cool.

Crush the lentils in a bowl, stir in the rest of the ingredients, the shallot, a  pinch of salt and black pepper.

Halve the filling. Roll each half, one at a time, to a 28cm-long sausage shape, Set aside.

Roll out the pastry to a 28cm square. Cut in half to give 2 rectangles. Lay one of the sausage shapes along one of the long edges of one pastry rectangle. Roll the pastry around it to almost enclose, then brush a little milk down the opposite long side. Roll the join underneath and press lightly down to seal. Slice into 8 rolls. Place on a baking sheet, with the joins underneath. Make 3 indents on top of each roll. Repeat with the rest of the pastry and filling. Brush the tops with a little milk.

Bake for 18-20 minutes until slightly puffy. Remove from the sheet and cool on a wire rack.
