This recipe makes one parchment scroll.


1 sheet pre-made filo pastry

2-3 thin strips of spring onion or chives

A little egg-wash (milk mixed with egg)

½ oz. (14 g) chicken, lamb, beef or pork mince (for vegetarians you could use Quorn mince)

1 tsp. chopped herbs such as parsley, thyme and dill

A pinch of nutmeg, ginger or cinnamon

Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

Grease a baking sheet.

Fry the mince until just cooked, then mix in the herbs and spices and leave to cool.

Carefully tear the outside edges of the pastry to make them look more like parchment.

Spread the filling in one line on one of the long edges of the pastry leaving space at the edges.

Roll the pastry up so that the filling is inside a hollow cylindar of pastry.

Tie the strips of onion around the scroll quite tightly but not enough to cut the pastry.

Brush with the egg wash and cook in the oven until golden brown.

Place on a plate and enjoy!
