These delicious vegetarian sausage rolls are far healthier than their meat-containing counterparts
Ingredients
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup raw pecans
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 cup low fat cottage cheese
  • 1¼ cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1½ cups rolled oats
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 sheets puff pastry
  • 1 egg for the glaze
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 400 F (200 C).
  2. If using frozen puff pastry, follow package instructions to defrost.
  3. In a food processor, process the eggs, pecans, onion, soy sauce, and cottage cheese until fine.
  4. Transfer the mixture into a bowl and add the breadcrumbs, oats, basil, oregano, and salt. Stir to combine.
  5. Place mixture in the fridge for 5 minutes.
  6. Cut each pastry sheet in half. Spoon one fifth of the mixture into each ½ pastry sheet.*
  7. Spread the mixture into a sausage shape along the pastry.
  8. Wet one edge of each piece of filled pastry slightly with water. Fold both sides of the pastry over the filling and close up using the wet edge to stick to the dry edge.
  9. Place the sausage rolls on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  10. Beat the egg for the glaze. Brush it over the top of the 'sausage' rolls.
  11. Using a knife, cut small slits in the pastry (about five per roll).
  12. Put in the oven for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
  13. *You will have ½ piece of puff pastry left over. To use it up you could put your favorite fruit on top, sprinkle with a little brown sugar, and pop it in the oven for 20-25 mins.
