A vegetarian twist on the classic sausage roll.



  • 1 onion chopped
  • 100gm mushrooms chopped
  • 1 cup oats
  • 300gm hard tofu chopped
  • 80gm spinach (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 tbspn Djon mustard
  • 1 tbspn chia seeds
  • 1 cup almonds (150gm) soaked for 30 mins then chopped
  • 1 tspn salt, decent shake of pepper
  • 1 tbspn of Za’atar spice mix (see note)
  • 1 egg

For Assembly:

  • Sesame seeds for sprinkling
  • 1 tbsp Za’atar for sprinking
  • 1 egg beaten for wash
  • 3 sheets of frozen puff pastry


  1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees celsius
  2. Pull the puff pastry out of the freezer and begin to thaw on the bench
  3. In a food processor blitz all ingredients until there are no obvious large chunks
  4. Sit mixture for a few minutes while you line your oven trays with paper, this allows the chia seeds to expand and the mixture to thicken
  5. Slice each puff pastry sheet in half and fill lengthways with a few tablespoons of mixture down the centre
  6. Fold each sheet over pressing carefully so the join is on the bottom and they now resemble 3 long logs
  7. Slice each log into desired size (4-6 pieces)
  8. Place on lined trays and brush with egg wash
  9. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and additional Za’atar spice
  10. Bake for 20-30 minutes until golden brown and puffed


  • Za’atar is a middle eastern spice mix found in most supermarkets or speciality stores
