Today’s prompt – Prep ahead Picnic
This dish I made for today’s prompt is so easy and one of the things I get complimented the most for – sausage rolls!
Nowadays you can buy frozen vegan sausage rolls in lots of places which you just pop in the oven but the joy of making your own is that you can add your own flavours and twists.
I use two products to help me along the way. Granose sausage mix and jus-rol puff pastry.
Make up the sausage mix as per the packet, for these ones I added a little garlic powder and oregano to the mix. Then wrap in the puff pastry sheet, add a few sesame seeds and bake in the oven for 20 mins at 180°C. They keep well in an airtight container. I always bring these to work when I am celebrating and they go down a treat!
What are you favourite snacks to make in advance? Let me know in the comments below.
I wasn’t sure how to word the title of this blog post so I’ve just gone with the above!
Monday marked 11 years (!) that I have been working for my company so I decided to bring in some tasty vegan treats for my colleagues.
I decided to make savoury snacks as it’s my birthday later in the month and I’ll bring in sweet stuff then.
First of all, I made sausage rolls. I know there are quite a few shop-bought vegan ones you can get now but I like to make my own as you play with the flavours a bit. I bought a pack of Granose Lincolnshire Sausage Mix from Sainsbury’s and a packet of Jus-Rol puff pastry and put the two together. I added some garlic granules and rosemary when I was making up the sausage mix too. These always go down well at work and they are so quick to make.
Next I made some almond feta. I think it was my friend Olive who introduced me to this recipe from Maple Spice and I’ve been making it for a few years now. It’s really simple although you do need to remember to do it the day before so you can let it drain overnight. These are also ingredients I generally have in my house so that makes it easy too. I served this up with some crackers.
Lastly we have Savoury Scones from the Vegan Recipe Club. I have taken in sweet scones to work a couple of times with coconut cream and jam but wanted to try my hand at these savoury ones. I added caramelised onions and made them mini so there were more to go round!
I’m pleased to say they all went down well with non-vegan colleagues.
