  • 1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). Lightly spray a 1.5-litre square ovenproof dish with oil.

  • 2. Remove stalks and centre vein from silverbeet. Place silverbeet in a large heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Stand for 1 minute or until leaves are just wilted. Drain and rinse under cold water until leaves are cool. Squeeze out excess moisture.

  • 3. Place couscous and tomato in a medium heatproof bowl. Stir in 3/4 cup boiling water. Cover with plastic food wrap and set aside for 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Using a fork, fluff and separate grains. Stir in basil, ricotta and egg white.

  • 4. For each roll, place a piece of silverbeet on a flat surface, with cut section overlapping slightly. Spoon 1/4 cup of couscous mixture onto centre of silverbeet. Roll to enclose filling, tucking in sides.

  • 5. Place rolls, seam-side down, in the prepared dish. Spoon tomato over rolls.

  • 6. Sprinkle with mozzarella. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is golden and rolls are heated.
