Phyllo Pastry Rolls With Cheesy Filling

I absolutely love working with phyllo – and eating pastries made with phyllo – and this easy peasy recipe turned out to be another fantastic pastry feast.

I used couscous with black beans because I like the texture of couscous in this kind of balls. The gluten-free alternative for couscous can be quinoa or a mixture of almond flour and breadcrumbs. Of course, all these substitutions will result in different textures and tastes themselves. I used parmesan in the black bean balls, but if you want to make it vegan, you can substitute parmesan with grated vegan cheese. I made them once this way, and they were …
