These sausage rolls are one of my all time favourite things to make, they are always a favourite at parties and people have no idea that they're even vegan! The filling really tastes like the sausage rolls I remember loving as a kid.
If you loved sausage rolls growing up, you HAVE to try these! The filling is made with a tofu base and you can find frozen puff pastry that happens to be vegan (just check in the ingredients) I use the Pampas brand which you can find at almost all supermarkets.
This can make about 10 rolls depending on how much filling you want to use on each sheet.
2 or 3 sheets of frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 block silken tofu (300g)
1/2 cup pecans 2 cloves garlic 1 onion 1 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup breadcrumbs 1 cube beef style stock (if you don't have a vegan one where you live you can use veggie stock) 2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
sesame seeds to sprinkle on top (optional)
1. Combine all ingredients for the filling in a blender. Mix together until well combined. It will probably look gross at this stage but trust me, they will turn out delicious!
2. Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
3. Cut the puff pastry sheet down the middle to create 2 long pieces of pastry.
4 Spoon the filling down the center of the pastry sheet lengthwise, so you have a line of filling from top to bottom. Brush the sides with water and fold over to seal.
5. Repeat with the remaining puff pastry and filling. Cut each sausage roll in half as they will be quite long (or you can keep them long is you like)
6. Use a knife to create a few diagonal cuts along the top of each sausage roll. Brush with water and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
7. Place on a lined baking tray and bake for 15 mins or until golden brown. Let it cool for 5 to 10 mins and enjoy!
