1 In a small saucepan, over a medium-high heat, place quinoa and ¾ cup of water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until water has evaporated and quinoa is tender. Set aside to cool.
2 Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
3 In a large bowl, combine mince, shallots, carrot, pesto, parsley and cooked quinoa. Season with pepper. On a clean work surface, place one piece of bread and brush edges with egg. Place ¼ of the filling along one long side of the bread, about 3cm from the edge. Roll firmly to enclose. Cut log into 4 even rolls. Repeat the process to make 16 rolls.
4 Brush tops with egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Place on prepared tray. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until rolls are golden and the bread is crisp.
5 Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine final 5 ingredients well. Serve sausage rolls with relish.
