These wheels are a genius way to get those vegetables your child normally point blank refuses into their diet! They are also a great way to use up vegetables in the fridge that would otherwise be thrown away



  • Either use a shop bought puff pastry or make your own pastry by using:
  • 150g flour (we tried it with spelt, oat and brown rice)
  • 150g Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp bicarb of soda


  • 1 cup of passata
  • 2 cups of chopped veggies (carrot, cauliflower, broccoli, courgette, mushrooms, pepper…whatever you have in!)
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • Glug of olive oil


  • Mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoon
  • Chopping board and knife
  • Rolling pin
  • Frying pan
  • Grater
  • Blender
  • Baking tray and parchment paper




1 Preheat the oven to 170c (180c if not fan assisted / gas mark 4)
2 Chop up all your veggies and fry in a little olive oil for a few minutes
3 Whizz it together with the passata in a blender and leave to one side
4 If making your own pastry mix the flour, Greek yogurt and bicarb in a mixing bowl until it forms a dough. Add a little more flour if the mixture is sticky (this is likely to be needed if you are using oat flour) - keep adding flour until you reach a good dough consistency that isn't sticky to touch
5 Cover your work surface and rolling pin with flour (this is important to prevent sticking) and roll the pastry into a rectangle shape
6 Cover your pastry with your sauce leaving 1/2 inch around the edge. Save any remaining sauce for another batch or to use in other dishes you might be making (a hidden veg sauce is always a handy thing to have in the fridge to add to pasta dishes, soups, casseroles etc)
7 Next cover with grated cheese and lightly push down
8 Carefully roll up the pastry length ways so you are left with a long roll - if you made your own pastry you might need to use a spatula to help lift the pastry off the work surface
9 Cut into 8-12 slices and either place on a baking tray lined with parchment or put the slices in a muffin tray (if using puff pastry you will be better off using a muffin tray as they don't hold their shape as well without it)
10 Cook for 15 mins until golden
