Instructions and steps:
Step 1Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Step 2Place bread in a food processor. Blend to make breadcrumbs then place breadcrumbs in a large bowl with lentils, carrot, egg, walnuts, chives and sauces to make filling. Mix well.
Step 3Remove 1 filo pastry sheet from packet and cover remaining sheets with a damp tea towel to prevent them from drying out. Spray filo sheet with oil and cut in half lengthways, making 2 long strips.
Step 4Turn filo strips so short ends face you. Place 2 tablespoons filling (about 3cm high) about 5cm from short end and 0.5cm from sides. Fold end over filling and roll up to form ‘sausage’ roll. Repeat process with remaining filo strip. Place rolls on prepared baking tray and spray with oil. Repeat process with remaining filling and filo sheets.
Step 5Sprinkle rolls with sesame seeds. Bake for 25 minutes or until pastry is golden. Serve ‘sausage’ rolls with extra tomato sauce.
