Kids Lunchbox Club - Mighty Pillows
My inner health freak was cringing at the thought of sending this to school for my daughter. But then the mother side of me who wants her to grow up enjoying vegan food said that it was ok for a special treat! I don't want her to grow up feeling like vegan food is boring & plain or that she's not allowed a treat.
With that thought in mind I proceeded to make her day by allowing this to sneak into her lunchbox!
This is easy enough to make in the mornings (well not those rushed mornings!!).
Lay a sheet of puff pastry out. Cut it into 4 strips lengthways.
Spread each strip with vegemite or other yeast spread of choice.
Cut a slice of tofutti cheese into 4 long pieces.
Layer 2 pieces of the cheese on each strip of pastry.
Fold the pastry over and over until it reaches the edge. Press the sides down well til they are mashed together.
The pastry treat will look like a little 'pillow'.
Place on a lined baking tray and bake at 200C for 15-20mins until golden brown.
Allow to cool slightly before putting into your kiddies (or your own) lunchbox! ;-)
Don't like vegemite?
You can make these pillows with corn relish instead! Equally delicious I promise!
