- Put the seaweed in a bowl and sprinkle with the lime juice.
- Lightly brush the cold filo pastry sheets with olive oil, divide into 2 stacks and place on greaseproof paper.
- Gently fry the chopped aubergine, onions, mustard seeds, and mushrooms in 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the red pepper, seaweed and lime juice. Simmer until all the juices are all absorbed.
- Remove from heat and mix in the other ingredients.
- Leaving a 3 cm strip along the top length of the pasty to seal, spread the mixture evenly, smoothing over the surface, between the 2 filo stacks.
- Using the greaseproof paper under the filo, carefully roll up the strudels into a two log shapes. Place them on a baking tray (don’t worry if you need to scrunch up a strudel to fit it on the tray as its wrinkled effect is quite rustic).Cut off the excess paper.
- Brush strudel tops with oil, sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake for 30 minutes at 200 C until crisp and golden.
- Cut into slices to serve.
