Beetroot, Courgette and Cheddar Pesto Pinwheels.

I love a bargain and I love using up leftovers. This recipes combines both! Using some puff pastry I found reduced to 16p and the veggies that were in need of being eaten quick. This was a bit of a gamble as I haven’t cooked a whole heap with beetroot but the sweetness of the beetroot really works and it gives these a beautiful colour.

Beetroot is packed with the phytonutrients: Betalain, a good antioxidant, this gives them their red colour.  They also contain a good amount of folate, manganese and potassium plus provide fibre. 

Although puff pastry isn’t something I would recommend people eat everyday, this recipe is packed with veggies and makes a good alternative for lunches.
