    Heat butter in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes or until caramelised. Add the capsicum; cook for a further 3 minutes or until soft. Remove from the heat; cool for 5 minutes. Stir in half the almond meal, the parmesan, rosemary and egg. Transfer to the base of frying pan or cake pan.

    Cut unpeeled sweet potatoes into 2mm slices lengthways and zucchini into 1mm slices lengthways. Combine oil and spice in a small bowl. Brush sweet potato slices with oil mixture. Lay 1 slice of zucchini over each sweet potato slice. Roll each into a spiral and stand, spiral-side up, on onion base. Press lightly into base to secure rolls.
