These Quorn Mince Vegetarian Sausage Rolls have been a hit with the family for years now. I even rock these up at Christmas as appetizers, along with other Quorn recipes, and get creative with the fillings. I do love Quorn mince recipes and often replace the meat ingredient in my one-pot spaghetti. Give these mini sausage rolls a try yourself, they are so easy to make!

Ingredients:

  • ½ small garlic clove, crushed
  • A handful of parsley, finely chopped
  • 50ml of cold water
  • 1 large or 2 small leeks, finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 packet (500g) of Quorn Mince, defrosted
  • 250g of ready-to-roll Puff Pastry, room temperature (you will have some left over)
  • 4 eggs, beaten (one for the egg wash and 3 for the sausage mix)
  • A little plain flour
  • 100g of cheese (goats or feta), grated
  • 30g of parmesan cheese, grated

  • Salt and pepper to season

Puff Pastry

  • Divide the puff pastry into half and half again, so you have 4 blocks.
  • Leave 3 aside and start with one quarter of the puff pastry on a clean floured surface.

  • Using your rolling pin, roll out the pastry to 1.5in/1.3cm thickness.
  • Cut the dough into long rectangles, leaving the width at least 4in/10cm.

  • Place the sausage mix in the middle of the long rectangular dough, leaving at least 1in/2.5cm gap around the sides to seal the dough.

  • Spread a little egg wash around the sides of the pastry and fold upwards to create long parcels.
  • Seal the parcels with the egg wash, by rolling over the seal gently. (okchef.org have some great videos on egg washing (and other culinary terms too – worth checking them out!))

  • Slice the parcels to create small 1.2in/3cm parcels.
  • Line your baking tray with greaseproof paper and place the small parcels on the tray, making sure there’s space between each parcel (I actually had to use cake release spray on this occasion because I didn’t have any greaseproof paper to hand, but I wouldn’t advise it.)

  • Eggwash each parcel generously (this will create the lovely golden brown look when cooked).

  • Pop into the oven for about 30 minutes or until the pastry is golden and the sausage mix is cooked well (cut one parcel open to check inside).
  • Allow to cool slightly and serve with a nice dip/sauce (yoghurt sauce is nice).
