Vegan "No-sausage" Rolls ( Potato, chickpea, spinach)

Hunter loves vegan sausage rolls! I fill them with varying ingredients, such as mushrooms, various nuts, pumkin, potato etc! You can make so many varieties of these sausage rolls!

These will be a perfect vegan snack for the kids at Christmas and for school holidays!

Hope you enjoy! xo


  • Organic Coconut Oil
  • ยฝ red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger
  • 200g Golden sweet potato
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ยฝ tsp tumeric
  • ยผ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp Filtered Water
  • 100g Organic spinach leaves
  • 400g can Organic Chickpeas
  • Pinch Celtic Salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley
  • Puff pastry
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds


  1. Finely dice the onion. Melt the Coconut Oil in a large frypan over a medium heat and cook the onion for 4-5 minutes until very soft and translucent.
  2. Finely grate or crush the garlic and finely grate the ginger. Add these to the onion and cook for a further minute.
  3. Grate the sweet potato and add to the frypan. Cook for 8-10 minutes until softened.
  4. Sprinkle over the cumin, tumeric, nutmeg and water and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  5. Roughly chop the spinach leaves and stir these through. Continue to cook the mixture, stirring regularly, until the vegetables are cooked well.
  6. Drain the can of chickpeas, reserving the liquid. Add the chickpeas plus 2 tbsp of the liquid from the can to a food processor and pulse to a rough puree.
  7. Stir the chickpeas through the vegetable mixture until well combined and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Set the mixture aside to cool for 15-20 minutes.
  9. While the mixture is cooling, defrost 2 sheets of frozen flaky puff pastry.
  10. Once the vegetable mixture has cooled, finely chop the coriander and parsley. Stir these through the vegetable mixture.
  11. Place half the vegetable mixture onto each pastry sheet about โ…“ of the way up the sheet. Using your hands form it into a sausage shape the length of the pastry sheet. Roll the pastry around the filling, as firmly as possible without stretching the pastry, until you have a roll shape with approximately 1 inch overlap of pastry. Trim the excess pastry if necessary.
  12. Transfer the rolls to the freezer for 30 minutes to set a little which will make them easier to cut.
  13. Preheat the oven to 180C Fan Bake. Line a baking sheet with parchment or greaseproof paper.
  14. After 30 minutes, remove the rolls from the freezer. Brush with Coconut Oil over the top of each roll and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  15. Using a very sharp knife, cut them to your desired length. Place the cut rolls onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes until the pastry is golden.


This recipe makes two large rolls, which can then be cut into 6-8 pieces. If you prefer for finger food or little hands you can make 4 smaller rolls by cutting each pastry sheet in half lengthways and dividing the mixture into quarters.

If the rolls collapse a bit during baking and the filling spills out, once the pastry is golden and they are out of the oven, use two dessert spoons - one of either side of the sausage roll - to gently push the filling back into the pastry into a roll shape.
