|Original photo – they were a real hit at the festival!|
1 tin Sanitarium “Vegie Delights” “NutMeat” – see note at bottom.
1 tin lentils – rinsed and drained
1 onion – diced
2 large cloves of garlic – crushed
some tomato paste – about a tablespoon ???
2 sheets of vegetarian flaky pastry (store bought of course!)
Above is the base for the rolls.
Good squirt of Worcester Sauce – Pam’s brand is vegan (no anchovy), if you can’t get vegan version then use Tamari sauce.
You can add whatever spices and herbs you like.
Moroccan spice – a good shake
Italian herbs – a good shake.
Spoiler Alert: The nutmeat is really solid and looks like a dog roll!
Open up the tin and spoon it out into the pan. I then get the potato masher and kind of break it up with that – just so it will heat through.
When it’s heated through (you don’t need to cook or brown it), add the lentils and heat them through too.
Then put the whole lot into a blender and zap it on full bore until it all mushes together.
This is when I’ll add the Worcester Sauce and the squirt is usually enough to get the mixture to stick. You sort of want it moist, but not too moist.
Add the salt, herbs and spices and keep doing the taste test until you’ve got it to what you like.
I slice the pasty square in half – two sheets gives me four long rolls. Put the mixture along the middle of the pastry and roll up. I put a cut across the middle … you can see it in the photo below.
Brush with soy milk
Bake – 200ºC for about 12 mins then turn down to 180ºC for another 12 – 15 mins or until pastry golden and it looks good.
|I didn’t eat any at the festival, but made some for dinner – yum!|
Hope you all enjoy!!!!
