Homemade vegie sausage rolls

I’ve never enjoyed shop-bought sausage rolls, but I love these “healthier” versions of the popular snack. It’s the perfect food for cool Autumnal evenings…


  •   400g – 500g of TVP (textured vegetable protein) (if using 500g you will definitely need 3 sheets of puff pastry!) you can also use turkey mince
  • 2 -3 tbs tomato paste
  • Splash of Worcester sauce
  • 1 egg
  • I large carrot
  • 1 bunch of coriander
  • 2 x tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 sheets of puff pastry
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Turn on the oven to preheat at 200 C
  2. Take two sheets of puff pastry out of the freezer (if you are adding a lot of veggies you may need three sheets).
  3. Wash and then roughly chop a carrot and then either finely chop or put into a Thermomix or high speed blender at speed 7 for 10 seconds
  4. Wash then then finely chop a bunch of coriander
  5. Add the TVP to a large mixing bowl, then add carrot, coriander, tomato paste, chia seeds and egg until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Cut the pastry sheets in half and then spoon the sausage mix into the pastry
  7. Brush the finished sausage rolls with milk
  8. Cook for 20 minutes or until golden
  9. Allow to cool, then cut up and serve with a big dollop of tomato sauce!
  10. Keep any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
