1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.

2. Place sweet potato, coriander and chilli powder in a bowl. Toss to coat. Place on 1 prepared tray. Add onion. Drizzle with maple syrup and 1 tablespoon oil. Roast for 30 minutes or until golden and tender, turning vegetables halfway through cooking. Cool.

3. Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add silverbeet and garlic. Cook, tossing for 2 to 3 minutes or until just starting to wilt. Remove from heat. Set aside to cool.

4. Combine sweet potato mixture, silverbeet, fetta, pecans and thyme in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine.

5. Reduce oven temperature to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Place 1 sheet of filo on a flat surface. Brush with butter. Top with another filo sheet. Brush with butter. Repeat layering with remaining filo sheets and butter to make a stack. Spoon mixture along 1 long side of stack, leaving a 5cm edge at both short ends. Fold filo over, tucking in ends. Roll up to enclose filling. Place seam-side down on remaining prepared tray. Brush with butter. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden.

6. Serve strudel with yoghurt and salad.
