I was tempted to add to this %u201Cpastilla%u201D recipe some salt, but finally I decided to follow the recipe. However I belive that this would be with half teaspoon salt good too. It came out very good, I did not miss the salt.
I hat only spring rolls sheets (the frozen wheat flour ones) so I used them overlapping one to the other. For this reason the top of my pastille is not %u201Cflat%u201D as it should be, but pretty and good too.
Finally it came out perfect and everybody like it. Easy recipe!
Served with oven cauliflower (Oven Roasted Cauliflower) and green salad.
