Simple yet elegant, these party pleasers are quick & easy to assemble. Quark is also a delicious substitute for the yoghurt cheese in this recipe. These can easily be made a day in advance to simplify your party preparations.
1 eggplant, sliced lengthways
2 zucchinis, sliced lengthways
250 tub Babushka Yoghurt Cheese
100g marinated sundried tomatoes, diced
Small tub Chickweed Pesto
(available from Kunara Café)
Oil of your choice, for chargrilling
You’ll also need: Toothpicks or small skewers
Coat eggplant and zucchini strips in oil and chargrill over barbeque or corrugated griddle pan. Allow vegetable strips to cool.
In a small bowl, swirl pesto through yoghurt cheese (be mindful not to overmix- it won’t look as pretty!) Smear a layer of the pesto yoghurt mix over the flat strip of chargrilled vegetable. Place a thin line of sundried tomatoes at the end of the vegie strip, then roll. Pierce the vegetable roll with a toothpick to secure it closed & place on a serving platter.
