These savoury vegetarian sausage rolls are perfect picnic fodder: they are easily transportable and there’s no need for any plates or cutlery to tuck into them. Shallot, roasted red pepper, fresh thyme leaves and balsamic vinegar all make these little bites taste a bit Mediterranean, and I’d say are equally good hot, warm or cold.

Vegetarian Sausage Rolls (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, sesame-free, vegetarian and vegan)


makes about 14

  • 1 pack dairy-free puff pastry (really, who has the time to make homemade puff?)
  • 1 slice bread, blitzed into fine crumbs
  • 1 tin pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 banana shallot, very finely chopped
  • 1/2 roasted red pepper, skinned and chopped
  • 2 tbsps soy sauce (or season with salt if avoiding soy)
  • 4 tbsps finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tbsps balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsps nutritional yeast

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees centigrade

– In a food processor blend the beans ( or mash with a potato masher). Add the breadcrumbs, shallot and flavourings. Taste and adjust flavours.

– Roll out the pastry a little more. Cut into a 3-4 inch wide strip.

– Make a neat line of filling about one inch in from the edge of the pastry.

– Brush one side with oat milk. Roll over the pastry to form a ‘sausage’ connecting the dry pastry with the oat milk brushed side.

– Cut into the 2 inch-ish sections.

– Place on a lined baking sheet.

– Brush with oat milk

– Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden.

– When cooked, cool on a wire rack.

– Eat or freeze

  1. These look absolutely incredible! I never tried a sausage roll when I was in England just because I wasn’t sure with my allergies. I’m especially excited to try out a vegetarian version!

    1. They’re certainly popular in England – cant say that they’re particularly healthy though! Although this veggie version is IMO far superior!! 🙂

  2. Do you have a allergy friendly recipe for puff pastry? There is no GF pastry stuff to buy … would love to try making one but did not come across a decent recipe yet. Any suggestions? We are GF, egg, dairy, wheat and buckwheat free (among others…).

    1. That’s so annoying you can’t buy any. Puff is such a faff to make – I’m sorry but I don’t have any ideas for how to make a good gluten free option…

      1. Yes it is soooo much work! I Used to reg. Buy the Ordinary all Butter One ( before allergybabe) and loved its versatility Sweet and savory… . Good Times…

      2. It is the Combo of all the different Allergies that make it difficult sometimes. But I am sure allergybabe does Not mind. And that is the Most important Thing…

      1. Yes, this recipe Looks doable. Thanks for your efforts. I will try it once allergybabe Passed his ” pea challenge”, scheduled for the end of june. 😃Ps keep up your fantastic work!

  3. I made these beauties yesterday & dippend them into a spicy dipping sauce! They really looked like real sausage rolls! MMMMMMMMM!
