  • Chopping board 
  • Knife 
  • Pastry brush
  • Oven
  • 3 Baking trays
  • Baking paper 
  • Mixing bowl
  • Mixing spoon
  • Measuring cup


  • 3 sheets puff pastry, thawed
  • 500 g chicken mince
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 carrot peeled and grated
  • 1 zucchini unpeeled and grated
  • 1/4 cup wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 serves of AptaGrow powder (e.g. 21 level scoops or 94.5g of AptaGrow 3+)
  • Sesame seeds or black poppy seeds to sprinkle


  • Preheat oven to 200°C and line 3 baking trays with baking paper.
  • In a large bowl, add the chicken mince, onion, carrot, zucchini, breadcrumbs, garlic, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, 1 egg and AptaGrow powder. Mix until well combined.
  • Cut one sheet of defrosted puff pastry in half and spoon a sixth (1/6) of the mixture lengthways along the centre of each piece. Fold 1 edge of pastry over and tuck it in over the filling, then fold the other side of the pastry to make a roll. Roll the sausage roll over so that the joined pastry is facing down. Repeat with the remaining pastry and filling to make 6 rolls.
  • Cut each roll into 6 pieces.
  • Beat 1 egg. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush the rolls with the egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds or poppy seeds.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the pastry is golden and puffed and the mixture is cooked through. Serve with your favourite dipping sauce.
