Vegetarian food doesn´t have to be boring! Even my kids love this tasty mushroom roulade. Serve it with freshly cooked vegetables, couscous or salad for a healthy family meal.

- 50g / 2oz butter
- 50g / 2 oz flour
- pinch of salt
- 450ml / ¾ pint of milk
- 4 eggs, separated
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- breadcrumbs to coat
- 2 medium onions, diced
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 450g / 1lb finely chopped mushrooms
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp chopped pimento
- 3 tbsp sour cream and chopped chives to garnish
- Line a large tin with baking parchment or greaseproof paper and lightly butter the paper to avoid the delicate roulade sticking to the tin.
- In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the flour and salt to make a paste or “roux” and cook the roux over a medium heat for a few minutes.
- Gradually beat in the milk with a whisk, stirring constantly until the sauce is thick and smooth.
- Remove from the heat and mix in the egg yolks and the sugar.Allow to cool.
- Whisk the egg whites until stiff and gently fold into the cooled mix. Do not over mix at this stage.
- Spread this batter onto the baking tray and bake in a medium oven 160 ºC / 325 ºF / gas mark 3 for around 40 mintues until golden, and the sides of the mix have pulled away from the sides of the baking tray.
- Spread a large sheet of greaseproof paper onto the worktop and sprinkle generously with the breadcrumbs.
- Turn the baking tin upside down and coax the roulade out onto the paper. Remove the greaseproof paper from the base of the roulade.
- To make the filling, gently fry the onion until tender and golden. Add the mushrooms and cook over a medium heat until the mix is cooked through and dry.
- Remove from the heat, stir in the lemon juice and chopped pimento. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Spread the filling over the roulade sheet and gently roll up, “swiss roll” style, by lifting and rolling over onto itself. This is quite a delicate operation!
Slice and serve hot with a dollop of sour cream, lightly dusted with paprika. Can be accompanied by vegetables, rice, couscous, salad or any other vegetarian option of your choice.
