Who wouldn't want the combination of puff pastry and creamy spinach & mushroom - 12 of these pasties lasted about 10 minutes in our offices!
Vegan puff pastry? Surely Greggs-type food is a total no-go for a vegan. Thankfully, not. Now, you may have to make your own puff pastry (Who me? I can't cook!) but never fear! We have made it easy for you. Follow Vegan Dad's easy Vegan Puff Pastry recipe and you're good to go!
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes hob and 15 minutes baking
Serves: 12 pasties
Cooking Temp: 160C
1/2 portion of Vegan Puff Pastry
1/4 red onion - diced
1 clove garlic - crushed
1/2 punnet button mushrooms - diced
1 bag baby spinach (100g) - chopped
4 tablespoon Alpro Single Soya Cream
Salt & Pepper to taste
Olive oil for frying
In a frying pan, saute onions and garlic
Add diced mushrooms and soya cream. Cook for approximately 4 minutes.
Add baby spinach and stir, ensuring all spinach is coated in cream. Allow to simmer for 3 minutes.
Add salt and pepper and remove from heat. Allow to cool.
While the mixture cools...
Roll out puff pastry on a clean and very well floured work surface. Using short sharp strokes, roll out until the pastry is about 3 cm thick.
Cut pastry using a cookie cutter (or wine glass, or basically anything round and with a diameter of approx 15cm)
Place teaspoon amounts of filling in to one half of the puff pastry circle. Make sure you leave about a 1/2 inch border of pastry on the edge.
Brush edges with cold water and fold empty side of the pastry circle over the filling side.
Seal edges with a fork.
Place on baking tray and lightly brush case tops with soya milk.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastry puffs and goes golden. Remove and place on cooling tray.
Coconut cookies in 6 easy steps
These cookies are a vegan treat, and can easily be made gluten-free. The cookies are so yummy, that they lasted about 5 minutes in the Extraveganza offices.
Before you get covered in dough and manage to get flour in places you never thought possible - grease a baking tray and preheat the oven to 180C.
TIP: Greaseproof paper reduces the mess and possibility that you will be testing your chiseling skills later on)
Leave to cool for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack
(Note: this step is the most difficult for any resident vegan. Cookies are normally inhaled before the cooling stage!)
