By Weight Watchers

Spinach and feta veal Rolls, brought to you by MiNDFOOD.

4 x 125g lean veal leg steaks, fat trimmed

60g reduced-fat feta cheese, crumbled

2 tbs pine nuts, toasted (see tip)

1½ cups (45g) baby spinach leaves

1 red onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, crushed

2 cups (500ml) tomato passata

400g baby (chat) potatoes, halved

2 bunches asparagus, halved

1 Place veal between 2 sheets of baking paper and pound with a meat mallet until 3mm thick. Cut veal in half lengthwise to make 8 thin steaks.

2 Combine feta and pine nuts in a small bowl. Place veal on a flat surface and arrange spinach leaves down the centre of each piece. Top with feta mixture. Working from a short end, roll each piece of veal firmly to enclose filling. Secure rolls with toothpicks.

3 Spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over high heat. Cook veal for 2–3 minutes each side or until lightly browned. Transfer to a plate. Cover to keep warm.

4 Lightly spray same pan with oil and heat over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, for 3–5 minutes or until softened. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add passata and 
bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Return veal to pan and simmer for 3–4 minutes or until cooked to your liking. Remove toothpicks.

5 Meanwhile, boil, steam or microwave potatoes and asparagus, separately, until tender. Drain. Cut veal rolls in half and drizzle with sauce. Serve with potatoes and asparagus.

TIP: To toast pine nuts, preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Spread pine nuts on a baking tray and bake for 5 minutes or until toasted.
