Odelay Cafe’s mushroom and artichoke roulade

Ask a Chef reveals the secrets of those superb dishes you ate in cafes and restaurants and wanted to try yourself.


Makes 4 generous portions

For the roulade

50g butter

¼ cup gluten-free flour

1 cup milk

50g parmesan

3 eggs, separated

For the filling

1 cup field mushrooms, sliced and sauteed

½ cup tasty grated cheese

1 Tbsp sour cream

½ cup chopped globe artichoke

¼ cup chopped sundried tomatoes

½ cup roasted kumara (or you could

use courgette or spinach)


Heat the oven to 200degC. Line a shallow 30cm x 20cm baking tray with greaseproof paper and spray for good measure.

To make the roulade

Melt the butter in a pot. Add flour and cook gently for a minute, stirring constantly. Add the milk and stir until thick and smooth.

Remove from the heat and stir in the parmesan and egg yolks. Allow to cool.

Whisk egg whites until firm. When cheese sauce has cooled to room temp, fold the egg whites through. Pour into lined and greased tray and bake until golden, about 10 minutes.

For the filling

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Once the egg mix is out of the oven and still just warm, spread the filling over 75% and gently roll over — start at the narrow end and finish wrapping the roulade in the baking paper to help it set.

Serve with salad and basil pesto for a light lunch or dinner.
