Vegan Christmas Recipes Episode 11: Vegan ‘Sausage Rolls’

For the whole Vegan Christmas Recipe list, click here 

Preparation Time: 10-20 minutes

Cooking Time: 25 minutes

How many days before Christmas can this be prepared/made: 2-3 days (they WILL get eaten before though)

Guest writer alert!

My amazing girlfriend Katie Clough is going to share with you her excellent vegan sausage rolls.

This recipe has gone through quite a few people and has changed massively from its inception. I believe the lineage is Delia Smith created some veggie sausage rolls, my mum took influence from that and made her own version of them, Katie then veganised them and amended to her own taste and in doing so, created this recipe that is delicious.

I have never tried creating my own version of these, simply because these are too good. I have many meat eater members of my family that choose these over the meat versions.

Just don’t make them TOO early otherwise I will eat them before Christmas comes around. Katie knows that and has her own hiding places, but I WILL find them and eat them all again this year!

This wraps up the Christmas special of my blog.

From me to you, have an AMAZING Christmas and I will see you all in the new year.

Juddy (and Katie).

Cook it:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to Gas 220 degrees celsius
  2. For the filling, simply place all the filling ingredients in a mixing bowl, season well and mix very thoroughly.
  3. Place one roll of filling on to one strip of pastry.  Brush soy milk along one edge, then fold the pastry over and seal it as carefully as possible.  Lift the whole thing up and turn it so the sealed edge is underneath.  Press lightly, and cut into individual rolls each 5cm long. 
  4. Place the rolls on baking sheets and bake high in the oven for 20-25 minutes.  If you want to cook them later, store them uncooked in a freezer box and freeze until needed.  Although you can store the cooked and cooled sausage rolls in an airtight tin, they do lose their crunchiness.
