I love vegan sausage rolls. They are a serious craving of mine. I’ve been obsessed with them ever since buying them at the canteen in highschool. I think in reality I just love puff pastry, but the puff pastry is the reason I didn’t want to upload this post. As delicious as it is, it’s not very healthy.
Most store-bought options are actually vegan but are made with highly processed margarine which is a source of trans fats, refined flour, and preservatives. For that reason, I don’t have pastry very often at all. I hardly ever cook with it at home.
I wanted to attempt to make my own puff pastry, but I was too scared in the end. It’s a lot of work for a dish that should be relatively easy. And I didn’t want to risk the recipe not working. (I’m not good with dough and pastry making.) I had a friend that said if you just load the veggie sausage rolls up with as much healthy filling as you can, then a little bit of puff pastry from time to time is probably ok. I completely agree with that. So I decided to go with it and just upload my favorite sausage roll recipe.
In the past, I have been more particular about making sure all the recipes I upload were consistent with my idea of “healthy” (yes I know we all have different definitions of healthy), but the truth is that even though healthy eating is incredibly important, it’s also important to not stress over food. I don’t like the idea of dieting and restriction, and I definitely eat unhealthy things on the regular. Besides the filling is pretty healthy and delicious! That’s all I am going to say for this post. Enjoy!
