Gluten-Free Vegan Sausage Rolls

Having finally mastered an easy, undetectably vegan and gluten-free pastry recipe, I was keen to use it to make more than just a load of pies. So, I got thinking about savoury recipes, and came up with sausage rolls! 

Gluten-Free Vegan Sausage Rolls

The pastry dough is made using buttery coconut oil, and a mixture of gluten-free flour (you can substitute this with rice flour, or if you’re not gluten-free, plain all-purpose flour also works), and ground almonds.

The almonds help to bind the dough together, and work to create a light, crisp and flaky texture. As a bonus, they also add some extra protein and fibre. 

Another reason I love this pastry dough is how low-maintenance it is: there’s no need to chill it beforehand, and I used a sheet of greaseproof baking paper in place of a floured surface, which makes clean-up infinitely easier.

I decided to make a chorizo-flavoured filling – it’s bean-based and seriously delicious. I used kidney beans as they have a great colour, but you can use similarly neutral-flavoured white beans such as cannellini beans, haricot beans or butter beans, or even black beans.

The chorizo flavour comes from a blend of garlic, smoky paprika, earthy cumin, fragrant oregano, tangy vinegar, umami-packed miso and soy sauce (or tamari), and cayenne for a little heat. Also crucial are the sundried tomatoes – you can use oil-preserved or dried ones, but remember to soak according to instructions on packet if using the latter.

I was seriously surprised to taste this mixture and discover it actually has a flavour remarkably similar to chorizo!

The final step involves glazing the pastry with agave syrup before baking, which adds a subtle sweetness that works wonders to balance out the deeply savoury chorizo flavours.

These Gluten-Free Vegan Sausage Rolls are equally delicious eaten hot straight from the oven as they are served cold, so they’re a fab make-ahead appetiser for parties and other gatherings. They’re also delicious in packed lunches!

Course: Main Course, Snack
Servings: 20 sausage rolls
Calories: 122 kcal
Ingredients
For the filling:
  • 400 g (14oz) tinned kidney beans, drained and rinsed (or sub white beans or black beans)
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 5 sundried tomatoes (soaked if using dried ones)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil (or olive oil)
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Pinch cayenne chilli pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (ensure gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1 heaped teaspoon miso (ensure gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce (or tamari if gluten-free)
  • Salt + pepper, to taste
For the pastry:
  • 30 g (1/8 cup) coconut oil
  • 75 g (3/4 cup) gluten-free flour, plus more for rolling (or sub rice flour, or plain all-purpose flour if not gluten-free)
  • 75 g (3/4 cup) ground almonds
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds or sesame seeds
Instructions
For the filling:
  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and whizz until completely smooth

  2. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary
For the pastry:
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (350 degrees)
  2. Combine the coconut oil, ground almonds, flour and salt in a bowl, along with about 7 tablespoons of water, until it forms a firm dough - add the water a few tablespoons at a time so that you don’t add too much!

  3. You can keep this pastry dough in the fridge for up to a day if you like, but there is no need to chill it before using
  4. Lay out a sheet of greaseproof baking paper on a counter. Sprinkle the surface of the paper and a rolling pin with a generous amount of flour
  5. Take 1/2 of the pastry dough and use the rolling pin to roll it into a rectangular shape, as thin as you can without it breaking
  6. Use a knife to cut this dough vertically in half and then cut it horizontally into 5 pieces, so that you have 10 mini rectangles in total
  7. Take a heaped teaspoon of the filling and place into the centre of each mini rectangle, then roll one side of the pastry on top of the filling and roll over onto the other side to create a ‘blanket’ of pastry

  8. Lay out the sausage rolls on a baking sheet lined with greaseproof baking paper
  9. Repeat until the rest of the pastry dough has been used up - any leftover filling makes a delicious pâté to spread on toast

  10. Mix together the agave syrup and almond milk, and use your finger tips or a pastry brush to spread it over the tops of all of the sausage rolls

  11. Sprinkle over poppy seeds or sesame seeds

  12. Bake in the oven for around 30 minutes, until the pastry crust is firm to the touch and golden brown

  13. Tastes best when fresh, but keeps covered in the fridge for up to a few days
