What’s a picnic without a few sausage rolls? Incomplete? Arriving just in time for picnic season [we hope!] we bring you these vegan sausage rolls with sweet caramelised onions and delicious flakey pastry. Pack any leftovers for lunch, too!
Sausage rollsPrint This
- 1 large or 2 small red onion, halved and sliced
- 1 tsp of extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp of light brown sugar
- 2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
- 6 veggie/vegan sausages of choice
- 1 sheet of puff pastry
- 1/2 tbsp of milk [dairy or dairy-free]
- 1 tbsp of soy sauce
- 1/2 tbsp of maple syrup
- 1 tbsp of sesame seeds
 Begin by taking the puff pastry out of the fridge to allow it to warm up slightly before unrolling. Next heat a pan on a medium heat and add the oil and sliced red onion(s). Cook for a few minutes before adding the light brown sugar and balsamic vinegar.
 Combine and let caramelise stirring frequently for roughly 15 minutes.
 Next preheat the oven to 180c and unroll the puff pastry. If the sausages have skins on remove them. Mash the sausages with a fork and then using a knife cut the sheet of pastry into 6 even squares.
 Split the onion mix between the 6 and place it on the right-hand side of each square ensuring space is left around the edge.
 Next add the sausage filling on top of the onion and then carefully fold the left side of the pastry over the right and seal the long side tightly shut.
 In a bowl combine the milk, soy sauce and maple syrup. Alternatively, an egg wash can be used.
 Gently score some lines in each roll and the brush over the liquid mix. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and place them onto a tray and into the oven for 20-25 minutes until lovely and brown in colour. Enjoy!
