  • Step 1

    Knead the almonds, sugar, vegan butter and rosewater either in a food processor or by hand into a homogenous mass.

  • Step 2

    Take 3 sheets of filo pastry and lay them so that they overlap and there is a long pastry line.

  • Step 3

    Now spread the almond mixture on the pastry leaving 5 cm clear at the bottom edge. Then carefully roll up the pastry into a long sausage.

  • Step 4

    Coil this roll carefully into a greased baking tin and brush the melted butter on it.

  • Step 5

    Bake in the oven at 180°C/350°F/gas 4 for 20 minutes or until the pastry has turned golden brown.

  • Step 6

    Sprinkle with rose petals and serve preferably while still a little warm.

    Tip: If you have time, you can make the filo pastry yourself. To do this, knead 500 g flour, 2 tbsp olive oil, 250 ml water, 1 tsp lemon juice and 1 pinch of salt into a dough. Leave to rest under a cloth for approximately 30 minutes. Roll out very thinly as required.
