Beetroot, walnut and goats cheese savoury palmiers

This recipe for beetroot, walnut and goats cheese palmiers is really easy as I’ve cheated and used ready-made puff pastry. Nonetheless they taste amazing and are a great way to add an extra portion of vegetables into a vegetarian starter, snack or canape.
