Vegetable and tuna strudel

An easy, flavour-filled meal.

Makes 4 generous servings

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 35 minutes

15ml olive oil

1 onion, chopped

1 medium brinjal, sliced

250g frozen vegetables

2 tins tuna

200g mozzarella, grated

100ml melted butter

15ml sesame seeds

• tomato relish to serve


6 sheets phyllo pastry

125ml dried breadcrumbs

125ml grated Parmesan

1. Heat the oil and sauté the onion and brinjal until cooked and aromatic. Add the frozen vegetables and cook until all the moisture has evaporated.

2. One by one, brush 5 of the phyllo sheets with butter, sprinkle breadcrumbs and Parmesan on each sheet and stack on top of each other, ending with a plain sheet on top.

3. Spread the fried vegetables evenly over the top sheet, leaving a 2cm strip open at the furthest end. Spread the tuna and mozzarella on top. Now roll it up like a Swiss roll and place on a greased baking tray. Loosely fold in the ends, brush with butter, sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake in a preheated oven at 200°C for about 20 minutes until golden brown and crispy. Serve sliced with tomato relish.
