Vegan sweet potato puff pastry

In the Netherlands we have a classic snack food were we roll a sausage in puff pastry. I love savory snacks and appetizers so I always wanted to recreate it. However, I toughed it was to easy to just put a vegan sausage in the puff pastry and call it a day. So, I experimented with some vegetables and beans (makes it a little bit more healthy as well).

Ingredients for around 8-10 bites

  • Sheets of puff pastry (I used a plant-based store bought one and used half the package (150 gr)).
  • 150 gr sweet potato (one medium sweet potato)
  • 50 gr chickpeas
  • 50 ml plant based milk
    • a little bit more for coating
  • 1 tbsp of curry powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbs of poppy seeds (or use sesame seeds)
  • Salt & pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C (356 °F).
  2. Clean and peel the sweet potato. Add them to a pot with salted water and bring to a boil. Cover the pot and let it cook for 20 minutes.
  3. In the mean time, drain and rinse the chickpeas (if you are using a canned). But them in a bowl and mash them with a fork or potato masher until it becomes some sort of a paste.
  4. Check with a knife to see if the sweet potato is soft enough. Drain them, and add them to the bowl and mash it all together.
  5. Add the plant based milk, curry powder, garlic powder, salt & pepper (to taste) and mix them well.
  6. Unroll the puff pastry and cut them in 8 cm x 12 cm (3,15 inch x 4,72 inch).
  7. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of filling and place them on them on the edge of the square. Make sure you leave some space at the edge.
  8. Cover the filling with the remaining puff pastry. Make sure to secure the edges (you can use a fork for this).
  9. Brush some plant-based milk on top and sprinkle some poppy seeds on top.
  10. Place on a baking sheet on parchment paper (or use a silicon mat).
  11. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes and the puff pastry becomes golden.
  12. Let them cool, but serve them warm. Enjoy!

Notes

  • You can substitute the poppy seeds with sesame seeds as well.
  • The sides of the rolls are open. But if you want to make sure the top doesn’t crack open, you can slice an opening with a knife.
