Sneaky Veg - Recipes

Hi, I’m Mandy Mazliah, a London-based mum to eight-year-old R, six-year-old Miss R and three-year-old Little S. How to get kids to eat more vegetables is an age old question. Here on Sneaky Veg you’ll find vegetarian family recipes that are designed to get kids eating more fruit and vegetables – especially picky eaters – and plenty of hidden vegetable recipes. Getting my children to eat five portions of fruit and veg a day has proved to be impossible (and let’s not even talk about ten a day) – sometimes we don’t even manage one item of fruit or veg a day. Because of this I’ve resorted to hidden vegetable recipes.

Easy red lentil and sweet potato pizza swirls

These pizza swirls are really quick to put together and make a great snack for toddlers and older kids. They’re brilliant for lunchboxes or picnics and always go down a storm. I’ve made these with Baby Led Spreads red lentil and sweet potato puree but they work well with any of the flavours.

Ingredients
• 1 x 320g sheet of ready rolled puff pastry
• 3 x 34g pots of Baby Led Spreads red lentil and sweet potato purée or preferred flavour
• 50g grated cheddar cheese
• 1 tsp dried oregano

Method.
• Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (fan)/200°C/gas mark 6.
• Roll out your puff pastry and place it on a baking tray on top of the baking paper that comes in the pack with it.
• Spread the purée over the top of the pastry.
• Sprinkle the grated cheese and dried oregano evenly over the pastry.
• Roll up your pastry tightly along the long edge until you have a swirl shape. If you have time place it in the fridge now for 30 minutes as this will make it easier to cut - this isn’t essential however.

• Cut into 10 1-inch sized slices and place swirl side up on the baking tray.
