Vegetarian Sausage Rolls

July 13, 2022

These are very yummy 😋

Makes a large batch
Cook time: 25 minutes


  • 450g puff pastry
  • 100g pinhead (steel cut) oatmeal
  • 300ml vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp oil or butter
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 200g chestnut mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 200g almond butter
  • 50g dried cranberries, roughly chopped (optional)
  • Fresh herbs – thyme, parsley, Italian herbs, whatever…
  • Ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp (or less might be better) Marmite
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Sesame seeds


  1. Put the oatmeal in the pan with the stock, bring it to a simmer then turn down the heat and cook for about 10 minutes until very thick. Let cool.
  2. Fry the onion in the oil until soft and golden then tip into a bowl and fry the mushrooms until soft and not too wet. Add to the onions and stir in the almond butter and oatmeal. Add remaining ingredients – start small with the Marmite, say a teaspoon and work up to your taste as you may find a whole tablespoon renders the mix too salty. Taste check. Heat oven to 220°C.
  3. Cut pastry to 20 x 50 cm. Spoon filling down the long side of the pastry, paint egg along the other long side then roll as tightly as possible. With seam side down cut into 3 cm pieces. Repeat until all the filling is used up.
  4. Transfer to a baking sheet, brush with egg and use scissors or the tip of a knife to snip a small hole in the tops and then sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until golden.
