- 1 teaspoon oil
- 1 onion finely chopped
- 1 zucchini, grated
- 2 small carrots, grated
- 500g mince of your choice
- 2 tablespoons tomato sauce
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 3 sheets of puff pastry
- Egg or milk for glazing
- Preheat oven to 210 degrees. Line two oven trays with baking paper.
- Heat oil in a small frying pan, add the onion and cook over low heat until soft and transparent, let cool slightly.
- In a bowl combine onion, mince, zucchini, carrot, tomato sauce and egg. Use clean hands to mix thoroughly
- Lay pastry sheets on a lightly floured bench and cut in halves vertically. Divide the meat mixture into six portions and spoon mixture across the middle of all puff pastry rectangles.

- Brush sausage rolls with milk or beaten egg using a pastry brush.
- Bake for 10 minutes, change the temperature of oven to 180 degrees and bake for another 15 minutes until golden and puffed.
- Serve with sauce and watch your little ones enjoy the hidden veggies!
