I love a good sausage roll, but they can be very dodgy, and veg ones are no exception. These homemade vegetarian sausage rolls recipe, true to most recipes like this, looks and sounds like a drunk three-year-old randomly dumped the ingredients into a blender. However, it works. I don’t know how, but soldier on – the end results justify the means!
If you’re hoping to make these for kids’ lunchboxes and their school is nut-free, you can substitute the nuts for pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds, or a mixture of both. I like to whiz the nuts or seeds first before the other ingredients so they’re quite fine – while the rolls are super nice with chunky bits, I find the texture more appealing if they’re smaller.
Folks have also popped in some grated veggies like carrot and zucchini, and I also like to put in garlic when I remember.
This is my friend Tara‘s recipe – and if you make it, let me know how you go and I will pass it on! Thanks Tara <3
