Recipe of the week: Miguel Barcley’s £1 vegan sausage roll
Miguel Barclay, Instagram sensation and author of the One Pound Meals cookbooks, has now turned his attention to eating vegan on a shoestring.
He said: “I wanted to take my time and create the best vegan sausage roll recipe ever – this is it!”
Ingredients (Makes 3)
½ red onion, diced
Handful of mushrooms, sliced
2 garlic cloves, sliced
1tsp dried oregano
200g black beans (from a 400g tin), drained
1tsp plain flour
½ sheet of ready-rolled puff pastry
Pinch of poppy seeds
Salt and pepper
1: Pan-fry the onion in a splash of olive oil over a medium heat for three minutes. Add the mushrooms, garlic, oregano and black beans, season with salt and pepper and continue to fry for about five minutes until everything is cooked and softened.
2: Remove from the heat, transfer the mixture to a blender and pulse until you get a coarse paste. Tip into a bowl, stir in one teaspoon of flour to help the mixture thicken, then allow to cool.
3: Preheat your oven to 190°C/gas mark 5.
4: Cut the puff pastry into three strips approximately 4cm x 10cm, spoon in a dollop of filling halfway along the strip and wrap to create your sausage rolls, finishing by squashing the end with the back of a fork.
5: On a lined baking sheet, sprinkle each roll with poppy seeds and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
