750g sweet potato, peeled, cut into 2cm pieces

2 tbs olive oil

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 bunch silverbeet, leaves removed (see tip)

1 large brown onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, crushed

2 eggs

250g piece fresh ricotta, crumbled

150g feta, crumbled

1 cup panko breadcrumbs

3 sheets frozen puff pastry, partially thawed

1Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced. Arrange sweet potato in a large greased roasting pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil. Sprinkle with cumin and paprika. Turn to coat. Roast 20-25 minutes until just tender. Set aside to cool 15 minutes.

2Wash, dry and shred the silverbeet leaves. Heat remaining oil in a deep, frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, cook, stirring for 5 minutes. Add silverbeet, cover and cook 1 minute until just wilted. Transfer to a large bowl.

3Lightly whisk 1 egg then stir into the warm silverbeet mixture. Cool 10 minutes. Add sweet potato, ricotta, feta and breadcrumbs. Season with pepper, mix well.

4Beat the remaining egg. Cut 1 pastry sheet in half. Spoon filling in a sausage shape along the long edge closest to you. Roll up and press to secure. Repeat with remaining filling and pastry. Cut each roll into 4 smaller ones. Place seam side down on trays.

5Score the top of each roll. Brush each sausage roll with egg. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes, switching trays around in the oven or until golden and puffed. Serve with tomato chutney.
