  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 500g kale, fienly chopped
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup water

Working quickly, brush one sheet of pastry with butter and spoon 1/16 of the filling along one of the long sides. Roll up tightly into a thin long roll and make into spirals. Place on oven tray and brush with butter. Repeat with remaining mixture and pastry, to make 16 spirals. Sprinkle with seeds. Bake at 200°C for 15-20 minutes until puffed and golden.
