Vegan Caramelised Apple & Pork Sausage Rolls

Vegan Friendly Apple, Red Onion & Pork Sausage Rolls

These vegan friendly caramelised apple and ‘pork’ sausage rolls are possibly my favourite yet. They’re so easy to make so don’t be fooled into thinking this is a tough recipe. Puff pastry, vegan sausages, a red onion and an apple is pretty much all you need!

Lets get into the recipe…

Puff Pastry- There’s no need to spend hours folding layers and layers to make puff pastry. I buy shop bought as pretty much most of the pre-made puff pastry is accidentally vegan friendly.

Bramley Apple- Again, you can use any apples you have in the house, I just find Bramley’s work well as they’re slightly larger and more crispy in flavour.

Vegan Sausages –I love using the Linda McCartney ones as they have the best texture for sausage rolls. There are a few options in the vegan range, so simply buy whichever you fancy giving a go.

Tamari- This is my secret ingredient in so many recipes. This time tamari works perfectly as a glaze for the pastry to give a beautiful and almost cheesy flavour on top. Tamari is just a gluten free soy sauce.

Sugar- This helps caramelise the apple and red onion perfectly. You can use 1 or 2 tbsp to make this a little sweeter if you have a particularly sharp bramley apple.

Cooking Tips:

Caramelising- Cooking the red onion and bramley apple, along with the sugar is better on a lower heat. If you set aside around 10 minutes to slowly fry the two, it’ll help with the caramelisation of them. Be generous with the olive oil to fry too. You can make this in advance and pop in an airtight container in the fridge to come back to the next day.

Brush the pastry- Brushing the pre-cooked sausage rolls with tamari will help give a beautiful coating. You can swap tamari for soy sauce but definitely recommend investing in tamari as I use it in nearly all of my recipes.

Don’t add the hot filling to the pastry- If you’re not rushed for time, allow the filling to slightly cool before adding to the pastry as this will heat it up and make it a little more difficult to work with.

Vegan Sausage Rolls

Only four main ingredients needed for this ‘recipe’ if you can even call it that. This is for all of you sausage roll lovers who need a quick fix without whipping it up from scratch. All I know is Mary Berry said she buys ready made puff pastry and that changed my outlook.


Ingredients Breakdown

Vegan Sausages- It’s good to have a vegan sausage thats packed with flavour such as Shroom Dogs or the Linda McCartney red onion sausages – they’re perfect!

Cranberry Sauce or Chutney-Depending what you prefer you can opt for a delicious cranberry sauce or something more savoury such as a caramelised onion chutney, or follow my friend Kaylea and go for a mango chutney filling.

Tamari- This is my secret ingredient for so many recipes. It gives a beautiful wash on top of the pastry before baking. It gives umami, colour, depth, everything you possibly need to take these to the next level.

Ready Made Puff Pastry – As I said before, if it’s okay for Mary Berry it’s okay for me.

Optional Vegan ‘Egg Wash’

Tamari / soy sauce- As used in my recipe, I find that using tamari (which is a gluten free soy sauce) is brilliant!

Oat milk & smoked paprika- Using a plant based milk with a splash of smoked paprika will give a gorgeous flavour.

Marmite & water – Add 1 tbsp just boiled water to a bowl and mix in 2 tbsp marmite, then use that as a brush, it’ll give a delicious flavour and lovely golden brown colour.
