2 tsp ground cumin
1 1⁄2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 small red onion, finely chopped
45g (1/4 cup) sultanas
1 1/2 tsp finely grated fresh ginger
200g (1 3/4 cups) grated 
sweet potato
250g pkt microwave 
brown rice, cooked
2 tbs chopped pistachio kernels
1⁄2 cup fresh coriander leaves, chopped
100g soft reduced-fat feta, crumbled
8 sheets filo pastry
70g (1/4 cup) low-fat 
Greek yoghurt
1 tsp pomegranate molasses
Salad leaves, to serve 


Step 1 Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Reserve 1/4 tsp each of cumin and cinnamon. Set aside.

Step 2 Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Cook onion and sultanas, stirring, for 3 minutes or until soft. Stir in ginger and remaining spices for 1 minute or until aromatic. Stir in potato for 3 minutes or until soft. Stir in rice and pistachio for 1 minute. Season. Transfer to bowl. Cool for 5 minutes. Stir in coriander and feta.

Step 3 Lay filo on a clean work surface. Cover with a clean, damp tea towel. Working with 1 sheet at a time, spray with olive oil. Fold in half horizontally. Place a rounded 1⁄3 cupful of rice mixture on right-hand bottom corner of pastry. Flatten to form a triangular shape. Fold pastry diagonally across filling to other edge, to form a triangle. Continue folding to end of strip, retaining a neat triangle shape. Spray with oil. Repeat with remaining pastry and rice mixture. Sprinkle with reserved spices. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden and crisp.

Step 4 Place yoghurt in bowl. Swirl through molasses. Serve triangles 
with yoghurt mixture and salad leaves.
