Kenilworth Cheese Festival and Ricotta, Carrot & Zucchini Rolls

A fabulous and easy recipe the kids will LOVE 

Kids love pastry. They love sausage rolls and party pies but as a parent you can be horrified at some of the ingredients and fat content in the ones you buy, sometimes ingredients you can't even pronounce! Which is why it is so exciting and rewarding to make your own.
This is a great, really quick and easy recipe and the kids can even help make it,and it is very budget friendly too!  

In this recipe I have used a beautiful local ricotta cheese by Kenilworth Cheese.
Kenilworth is a gorgeous little inland town in South East Queensland, a very picturesque spot and home to the fantastic family fun day out

Mark the date for this festival in your diaries as it is a fantastic day out with so much to do, see and taste and lots of fun for the kids.
They even have
Cheese rolling and a cheese hunt for the kids.

We had a great time! It was a really fun day out and you come home with cheese!
It is also a really lovely drive out there and you can make a day of it, taking in the hinterland and surrounds.

  • 250g Kenilworth fresh ricotta cheese
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1 large zucchini
  • ½ cup grated Kenilworth mild cheddar cheese
  • 1 Rawganix free range egg
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • salt
  • 4 sheets reduced fat or gluten free puff pastry
  • Pre heat oven to 180`c.
  • Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  • Remove pastry from freezer and let thaw slightly.
  • Combine the egg and ricotta, mix together and add in turmeric and a pinch of salt.
  • Add the grated carrot, zucchini and cheese, combine well.
  • Cut each sheet in half. Put a layer of mixture down the centre of each piece.
  • Roll closed with the pastry rolling over itself so you end up with two long rolls.
  • Cut into desired lengths.
  • Brush them lightly with beaten egg.
  • Bake until golden brown and pastry is cooked.
  • Serve!
  • Add some fresh chili for a more adult version.
  • The addition of some curry powder or curry paste gives a different version.
  • Freeze for your own healthy version of takeaway for those times when you want a quick and easy dinner.
  • I have used turmeric in this recipe for its great health properties with my own children, you can leave out.
  • Great cold in the school lunchboxes!
Toddler Tips
  • Make them nice and small so they are toddler hand sized
  • Serve with a toddler salad of salad greens, boiled eggs, fresh crunch snow peas, cherry tomatoes, avocado and some sunflower seeds.
