added sliced salami to this recipe and guests devoured this!
I made this and it was a major hit. I adapted it this way instead of the rolls I spread it on tortillas rolled them baked them and let cool and then sliced them into pinwheels and served at room temp. they were gone in seconds.
I am delighted to have found this vegetarian recipe at the start of the holiday season, although it would be good at any time of the year. The wreath shape is particularly festive. I made it as a vegetarian main course with the bright red Spicy Quinoa Salad as a side a couple of nights ago, and it was so successful that I plan to serve it as part of our Christmas dinner. This is one of those easy recipes that look like you slaved...gotta love it!
