    2

    Ingredients

    • 2 sheets Pampas reduced fat puff pastry, thawed
    • 1 (425g) can Tuna in springwater
    • 1 (220g) can unsweetened corn kernels
    • 2 sprigs coriander
    • 1 tsp curry powder
    • 2 tbsp macadamia oil, or other oil
    • 1/4 cup finely grated cheddar

    Quick tuna, corn and puff pastry pin wheels

    For this recipe, I used Pampas reduced fat 25cm square puff pastry sheets, tuna in springwater and unsweetened corn kernels.

    If your pastry came on foil sheets, do not remove them, they will come in handy when rolling up the logs.

    Method

    Preheat oven to 200C (180C fan forced, 400F, gas mark 6).

    To make the stuffing, drain tuna and corn, place in a bowl. Break up tuna chunks with a fork.

    Add curry powder, finely grated cheddar, and finely chopped whole coriander sprigs. Mix well to combine. Add oil and mix to form a rough paste.

    To roll the pinwheels, place puff pastry on a sheet of cling wrap to thaw slightly if yours didn’t come on a sheet of plastic already.

    When pliable, place half the tuna mixture along the edge of the pastry, leaving about 1 cm gap on either end. Compact the mixture together with your hands.

    Start rolling up the logs from the filled edge until you have a firm even log.

    Using a serrated knife, cut the log into 2cm wide slices. Repeat with the second sheet and remaining mixture.

    Place slices on a baking paper lined tray and bake in a preheated oven for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.

    You can serve these warm or cold with a side of dipping sauce of your choice if you like.

    Tips and Tricks

    • To use up leftover puff pastry, cut into small strips and brush with beaten egg. Sprinkle with cheese or cinnamon and sugar for a quick treat!

    • Growing your own coriander is one of the most efficient, cost effective and waste-avoiding ways to supply your kitchen with fresh herbs. Simply grow it in your garden or on your windowsill and cut off what you need as you go.

    • As a general rule, try and buy only so much cheese as you can eat in two sittings. This will reduce the need for long cheese storage and reduce the chance of wastage.
