Ricotta and Filo Triangles

INGREDIENTS

50ml olive oil
1 carrot, peeled and coarsely grated
4 rainbow chard, washed and finely sliced or snipped with scissors
2 silver beet, washed and finely sliced or snipped with scissors
12 sage leaves, finely sliced or snipped with scissors
100g ricotta cheese
100g cheddar cheese, grated
100g butter, melted
1 packet filo pastry

METHOD

Pre-heat oven to 180C.
Heat olive oil in a non-stick frypan over a medium heat. Add carrot, rainbow chard, silver beet and sage. Season with a little salt and pepper and cook until soft, about 5-10 minutes. Place in a bowl and allow to cool. Stir through ricotta and cheddar cheese.
Brush one sheet of filo pastry with butter and place another sheet on top.
Cut into 5 strips. Place a spoonful of ricotta mix at the bottom of each strip.
Fold up into triangle shapes until you reach the end. Brush with butter to seal. Repeat until all the mixture is used. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden and puffed up. Serve with tomato ketchup.
