White Bean Roasted Pepper Phyllo Rolls
Here we have another new recipe for Eat, Drink and Be Vegan. I haven't completely figured out the name yet - and also haven't decided on the 'wrap'.
The filling is a white bean, roasted red pepper, and walnut mixture. I first tested it using whole-wheat tortillas to encase the filling. The next time I used phyllo pastry... which I preferred, but hubby thought he may have liked the tortilla wrap better.
This is a shot of all those nummy phyllo wraps ready to be baked!
I may give both options in the book, but I'm wondering if you guys like working with phyllo? I know it looks/sounds intimidating, but I can tell you (from someone that doesn't like the fuss of working with pastry), that it is fairly easy to work with... and it's forgiving, allowing you to patch up if you tear pieces. Hmmm, am I trying to convince you now? :)
Also, has anyone ever seen phyllo made from whole-wheat or whole-wheat pastry flour? I am doubting it exists. I have seen spelt phyllo pastry, and the next time we cross paths I am picking some up! But as for finding an unrefined phyllo dough... probably wishful thinking!
