I was perusing the lovely ‘Where’s the Beef?’ on the weekend and came across these vegan sausage rolls. When I was a young lady, sausage rolls were one of my favourite foods, but I haven’t had one for a long time. I thought that I’d give Cindy’s recipe a shot.
I followed her recipe exactly, except I added some real mashed garlic in place of garlic powder (because that’s what I had) and some Vegemite (I thought that might be interesting and ‘meaty’). I also sprinkled some dukkah and za’atar over the top instead of plain sesame seeds (also, because that’s all I had). I’m not 100 percent sure whether Vegemite is vegan or not; there appeared to be some controversy on the internet. But, otherwise, all vegan!
Vegan and vegetarian meals that try to approximate ‘meat’ don’t usually appeal to me. I just feel that if you’re not going to eat meat, then don’t. However, these were really quite a bit of fun and made me feel a little nostalgic. I even served them with some Rosella tomato sauce – just for old time’s sake!
These rolls really are an incredibly close imitation of real meat. The meat-eaters in my household reported that they honestly couldn’t tell the difference. No kidding!
Thanks to Where’s the Beef for your groovy blog and congratulations on post number 1000!
