Ingredients
For the sweet potato pastry
  • 1 large sweet potato (approx 455g/1lb)
  • 2 tbs of coconut flour - 3 syns
  • 2 tbs of cornstarch (or tapicoa/arrowroot flour) - 3 syns
  • 3 tbs of water
  • ½ tsp of salt
for the sausage filling
  • 300g/10.5oz of extra lean ground pork
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbs of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbs of maple syrup - 2 syns
  • ½ tsp of thyme
  • salt and black pepper to season
  • spray oil
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds (optional) - 1 syn
Method
  1. Pierce the sweet potato with fork
  2. Place in microwave and cook for 8 minutes
  3. Allow to cool.
  4. Then scoop out sweet potato flesh, roughly mash and roughly measure 1.5 cup/360ml of the sweet potato.
  5. Add this to a food processor with 3 tbs of water and puree till smooth.
  6. Preheat oven to 200c/400f (gas mark 6)
  7. Add the sweet potato to a bowl and mix in the salt, coconut flour and starch until all combine.
  8. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and divide the sweet potato mix into 5 equal sized balls.
  9. Take one ball and flatten it out on the parchment lined tray, shaping it into a rectangle approx 6 inches by 4 inches.
  10. Repeat with other 4 balls.
  11. Spray over the top with spray oil
  12. Bake in oven for 15 mins. Till they are just starting to go lightly golden and lift off easily as one sheet.
  13. While sweet potato is in oven, spray a lidded pan over a medium high heat with some spray oil.
  14. Add the onion and fry till softened and lightly golden.
  15. Add in the balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, little splash of water, thyme, and a pinch of salt.
  16. Cover with lid and reduce heat and simmer until onion becomes caramelized.
  17. Set aside to cool.
  18. When sweet potato has cooked for approx 20 mins, remove and carefully using a spatula lift from the tray and before they cool, roll into pastry cases (just so they keep the shape)
  19. Once onion has cooled, add to the ground pork, and season well with salt and black pepper and mix to combine.
  20. Now take one of the sweet potato pastry sheets. If you want full sized sausage rolls leave as is, I prefer to make mini ones, so I slice each sheet in half lengthways so I have 10 strips.
  21. Add a quarter of the sausage meat along the short width of the sheet and carefully roll like a sausage roll.
  22. Brush with a little of the beaten egg on the fold so that it sticks together.
  23. Repeat with the other sheets.
  24. Place them on a baking tray and make a couple of little slits with a knife along each sausage roll.
  25. Brush over the top with the egg.
  26. Sprinkle with sesame seeds (optional)
  27. Spray with some more spray oil
  28. Bake in the oven for 30 mins, until lightly golden and sausage is cooked through.
