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!

    I’m glad they worked out so well for you, Saskia! I love ’em all year round, though it’s particularly nice to crank up the oven and mash some potatoes on the side now in the colder weather. It’s definitely a nostalgia dish for me. πŸ™‚

      Thanks Cindy! My friend made some vegie sausage rolls once with red lentils. I’d like to try them too. I guess you could have heaps of fun coming up with all sorts of fillings…
