Sausage rolls, vegetarian style! Sausage rolls are always an absolute crowd pleaser, from young kids to big kids.

But a vegetarian version? I was sceptical to begin with, but trust us, these beauties are absolutely delicious, and full of flavour.

Courtesy of Allie at One Handed Cooks, these goodies take good old sausage rolls to a new level!

So whether you've got your son's sixth birthday this weekend, or book club tonight, these beauties will most certainly do the trick.

 

2 tbs olive oil                                                                             ½ brown onion, finely chopped

1 cup diced/peeled potato                                                1 cup diced/peeled sweet potato              

1 carrot, grated                                                                        1/3 cup frozen peas

1/3 cup fresh corn kernels                                               1 egg, lightly beaten

1 tbs chia or sesame seeds                                                2 sheets puff pastry, partially thawed

Handful of finely chopped fresh herbs (parsley & thyme work well)

 

Method 

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C, and line two baking trays with baking paper.
  • Boil the sweet potato, potato, peas and corn until soft. Use a fork to roughly mash the mixture together.
  • In a small fry pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the onion and carrot, and lightly fry them until soft.
  • In a large bowl, combine the vegetable mash, onion and herbs. NB: If you have particularly fussy eaters, use a food processor to blend the vegetable mash, onion and herbs, so they’re more cleverly disguised!
  • Cut pastry sheets in half. Spoon ¼ of the mixture evenly down the centre of each pastry rectangle. Fold one edge of the pastry over the filling, stretching it slightly as you go. Fold the other pastry edge over the top to overlap, then press down gently to seal.
  • Turn the roll over and place on the baking trays (seam side down).
  • Cut each roll into 4 or 5 parts, and prick small holes in the top. Brush the tops with the egg, sprinkle with sesame or chia seeds, then bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
