Units Scale

4 sheets frozen puff pastry (defrosted)
3 tbsp Plant-based Nuttelex
1 onion (finely chopped)
1 garlic clove (minced)
500 g lean turkey mince
3 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp vegan ricotta or silken tofu if dairy-intolerant or regular ricotta or cream, if you prefer
1 tsp fresh herbs – rosemary, oregano and thyme (chopped)
Cracked black pepper
Fresh tomato sauce, passata or cranberry sauce to serve


  1. Remove puff pastry from freezer.
  2. Preheat oven to 200 C
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons of Nuttelex in a small saucepan for greasing and pastry.
  4. Grease a round flan case with a little of the melted Nuttelex. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon Nuttelex in a frypan over a medium heat, sauté onion and garlic until translucent, about 10 minutes remove from pan, allow to cool.
  5. Place turkey mince in a mixing bowl, add cooked onion and garlic, tomato paste, ricotta and fresh herbs and season with salt and cracked black pepper.
  6. Lay a defrosted pastry sheet out on a clean board. Spoon some of the turkey mince mix across the top edge of the pastry, to form a sausage shape.
  7. Now roll pastry over to form a tube, seal with melted Nuttelex, and cut the pastry into bite size pieces, about 2-3cm wide. Repeat this process with remaining pastry until all the mixture is used.
  8. Place sausage rolls as you go into the lined round flan case in a pattern of your choice.
  9. Brush the pastry with melted Nuttelex and bake for around 20-25 minutes, cooking time may depend on how tightly packed the flan case is.
  10. Allow to cool slightly before carefully removing rolls, or let your guests help themselves pull-apart style.
  11. Serve with fresh tomato sauce, passata, chutney or cranberry sauce.
