Hi all. Inspiro dietitian Liam here again with this week's recipe.
Let’s face it, cheese and Vegemite are a delicious combination and what’s even better is that this recipe provides a delicious combination that’s also healthy. This is a simple, quick and cheap recipe that is a perfect snack for any occasion particularly for school or office lunches or snacks. You can eat them fresh or they can be frozen for later use!
White flour has been swapped for wholemeal flour for added fibre and minerals, low-fat milk and low-fat cheese has been used to lower saturated fat content and extra virgin olive oil has been used instead of butter to increase heart healthy fats. These are a few simple swaps that I have been made without sacrificing any of the delicious taste!
This recipe makes 12 cheesy Vegemite scrolls. (See how to make the pizza scrolls version here).
