Sausage and bean pasties

Last Updated on

This simple but very effective and recipe was adapted from a parenting magazine, where the use of meat sausages and real cheese was intended.

Ingredients

  • 225g (8oz) plain wholemeal flour
  • 100g (4oz) vegan margarine
  • 50g (2oz) vegan “cheese”, grated (we use mozarella style Scheeze from Bute Island foods)
  • small amount of soya milk to bind
  • some baked beans
  • vegan sausages (e.g. Linda McCartney), chopped into small pieces
  • sesame seeds for sprinkling

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas mark 6.
  2. Put flour in a bowl and rub in margarine until mixture is like fine crumbs. Stir in most of the grated “cheese” reserving the rest for topping the pasties.
  3. Add just enough soya milk to form a soft dough.
  4. Roll out on a lightly floured surface and cut out circles. One of the few useful plastic items we bought from Betterware (or was it Kleeneze?) was a set of pasty makers. These simplify the cutting, filling and sealing stages.
  5. Spoon beans and one or two sausage pieces into the centre of each circle
  6. Dampen edges, then fold over and seal to form pasties.
  7. Put on a baking sheet (we have found that it is better not to grease the baking sheet) and chill for 30 minutes.
  8. Glaze pasties with soya milk and sprinkle with sesame seeds and grated “cheese”. Cook for 20 minutes.

  2. Any wholefood shop should have some vegan cheese, though the selection of makes and flavours will vary from shop to shop. Meanwell and Open Sesame in Ennis, The Grainey in Scariff to name but a few ones I shopped in.
