My little cousin requested a recipe for a vegetarian roulade, which I had never tried to make, so I promised her I would try to make 1. For inspiration, I looked up various roulade recipes online. Do you know how hard it is to find a vegetarian roulade!? I completely understood her plight.
Since a roulade is essentially flattened meat wrapped around veggies or other ingredients, a vegetarian version isn’t always easy to think up. I saw variations using omelettes and flavoured dough to stuff with veggies, but I wanted a cop out so here is my easy Chickpea, Spinach, & Wild Mushroom Roulade! It was absolutely delicious if I must say so myself. I ate at least a cup of the filling on its own while it was cooling down before I stuffed the pastry! (whhoopps!). I am definitely going to make this veggie mix on its own without the cream cheese to eat just like that. So good!
This is a great appetizer if you cut it up and serve it to your guests or as a great vegetarian centrepiece on your Christmas table if you dress it up. I served it alongside a yoghurt and mint dip. Tasted great with and without it though. If you are serving this as the main, serve it alongside soup, salad, some roasted eggplant perhaps? A delicious veggie meal. Next time, I will make the roll from scratch, but for now, here’s the easy version.
