Vegetable Phyllo Rolls

These delicious vegetable phyllo rolls are infused with a delicious mixture Moroccan spices. This recipe took much longer then I had anticipated and I found the phyllo dough difficult to work with, but the final product was well worth it! The phyllo rolls made a perfect dinner paired with rice but they would also make great party appetizers.

  • 1 yellow pepper, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 3 small zucchinis, cubed
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 medium fennel bulb, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 3/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 cup canned cannellini beans
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, minced
  • 8-12 sheets phyllo pastry sheets

Preheat oven to 425*F. Place peppers, zucchinis, onion, fennel, apricots, and garlic on baking sheet. Coat in olive oil, spices, salt, and pepper. Roast in oven for 30 minutes or until vegetables are browned and softened.


Remove from oven and mix in beans and basil. Allow to cool. Wrap a small amount of mixture in 2 thin sheets of phyllo dough, folding in the edges as you roll (as if folding a small burrito). Be sure to keep dough moist by covering them with a damp cloth or brushing them with oil to keep them easy to mold; I ran into a few problems when my phyllo dough began drying up and cracking before I was finished rolling them! Practice makes perfect I guess! Place rolls on baking sheet and brush each with olive oil. Bake for about 25 minutes or until rolls become crispy and golden brown. Enjoy!
