Meat-Free Sausage Rolls

These tiny treats have been a family favourite for many years - even meat-eaters compliment how yummy they are, and ask me to make them again!
Consider making a double recipe because they will disappear quickly, You can make them well in advance, because these pastries will last for up to 3 months in the freezer - simply thaw and bake when you're ready.

  • Baking Tray
  • Blender
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Pastry Brush


  • 125 gram Pecans
  • 1/2 cup Breadcrumbs wholegrain
  • 1 Onion
  • 300 gram Silken Tofu
  • 1 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 Beef-style Stock Cube
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Tomato Sauce
  • 1 tsp Curry Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Liquid Smoke optional
  • 3 Tbsp Tamari
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • 4 Plant-based Frozen Puff Pastry Sheets
  • Plant-based milk for brushing pastry
  • Sesame Seeds optional


  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C) and lightly grease a baking tray. Thaw the puff pastry.
  • Process the pecans until thoroughly chopped, but still retaining some texture (don't blend it to a powder!).
  • Add chopped pecans and breadcrumbs to a large mixing bowl.
  • Chop the onion finely and add to the mixing bowl.
  • Process tofu until smooth, then add to the mixing bowl with the rest of the filling ingredients (excluding pastry, milk, and sesame seeds). Mix everything together well.
  • Slice each pastry sheet in half so that it forms two rectangles.
  • Spoon the filling down the centre third of each pastry rectangle; lightly brush one third with water or milk, then roll the pastry starting from the empty third and tucking it into the brushed third.
  • Slice the rolls into a length of your choice (about 1 inch is a nice little mouthful) and place on a baking try. Add a few diagonal cuts to the top of each roll, brush the top with milk, then optionally sprinkle over a few sesame seeds.
  • Repeat with the remaining filling and pastry.
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until pastry is a lovely golden brown. Serve warm with your favourite sauces or chutney. Enjoy!
