Jackfruit is so useful to add texture to any savoury dish. It doesn’t have much flavour on its own, but it takes well to lots of herbs and spices. The filling for these rolls is very tasty and also very versatile. It can be used in so many other dishes, such as a filling for Fate Wraps, Savoury Pancakes or Ravioli. The rolls make a delicious dinner with suitable vegetables or salad as well as a snack on its own. This recipe makes 8 and they freeze well.
For the filling:
1 tbsp oil
75g onion, finely chopped
75g sweet potato, finely chopped
75g red pepper, finely chopped 75g mushrooms, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped 1 tsp oregano 2 tsp paprika 2 tsp tomato purée ½ tsp salt good grinding of black pepper 2 pinches dried chilli flakes, more or less to taste 1 x 400g tin young green jackfruit (250g drained weight) 25g Fate Low Protein All Purpose Mix For the pastry: 300g Fate Low Protein All Purpose Mix 150g block margarine (at room temperature) pinch salt 75ml water extra Fate Low Protein All Purpose mix to roll out
First make the filling:
Place a large frying pan onto a medium heat, add the oil and when it is hot put in the onions and sweet potato. Stir and cook for 5 minutes until softened. Stir in the red pepper, mushrooms and garlic and cook gently for about 10 minutes until soft. Add the oregano, paprika, tomato purée, salt, black pepper and chilli flakes. Stir well. You can add 1-2 tbsp water to the pan if you think it seems a little dry and to prevent the paprika from burning. Stir well and leave to cook for a few minutes. Move the cooked mixture to the side of the pan and add the drained jackfruit to the other side. Stir and lightly crush the jackfruit as it softens. Remove the pan from the heat. Use a potato masher to mash the vegetable mixture at the side of the pan. When it is almost smooth enough to come together, mix in the jackfruit and mash a little more, but not too much, as it’s nice to still have some texture of the jackfruit. Stir in the 25g Fate Low Protein All Purpose Mix, and then leave to cool.
Then make the pastry: Place the Fate Low Protein All Purpose Mix and the salt into a mixing bowl. Rub in the margarine until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs, then continue to rub in until it looks like coarse breadcrumbs. Add the water and use a large metal spoon to mix into a smooth soft dough. Dust the work surface with a little Fate Low Protein All Purpose Mix and knead the pastry for a couple of minutes until smooth.
Then put the sausage rolls together:
Dust the work surface lightly with Fate Low Protein All Purpose Mix. Take about half of the pastry, and roll it into a sausage shape about 35cms long. Use a rolling pin to first flatten it, then roll out to a strip about 10cms wide, and 40cms long. The pastry should be about 5mm thick. Trim the edges to neaten. Cut the strip in half.
Place spoonfuls of the vegetable mixture in a line down the middle of each strip of pastry. Moisten the edges with water. Then gently fold the edges of the pastry together to enclose the vegetable mixture. Press down and use a fork to seal the edges. Cut each piece into 4. Then use the fork to prick the surface lightly in a couple of places. Place onto a baking tray. Repeat with the remaining pastry and vegetable mixture. Bake in a preheated oven for 12-15 minutes until cooked and golden.
