Mushroom sausage rolls

These veggie sausage rolls are fun to make and delicious to eat! They are made with a mushroom and lentil filling that uses lots of healthy herbs and results in a meaty tasting sausage roll (without using any meat!). Children will learn how to make their own flaky pastry and have lots of fun growing and becoming soil detectives with the extra activities in the kit...
