"Sausage-less" Rolls

Life has been very busy for me lately - this is reflected in my lack of posts! 
I hope to be more motivated soon and share all the drafts that I have lined up waiting to be published. 

These "sausage" rolls were inspiration enough to get me started back at it again. They are super easy to make and they are very delicious. 


To make 4 rolls you'll need:
2 tins lentils
1 Tablespoon each: nutritional yeast, onion flakes, soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon each: ground garlic, sage powder, liquid smoke and molasses
8 sheets filo pastry

Drain the lentils and combine them in a bowl with all the other ingredients except for the pastry.
Mash until the lentils have crumbled and the mixture resembles mince. 
Place a quarter of the mixture onto the side-middle of 2 sheets of filo pastry. 
Fold the side of the filo pastry in, then fold the edges up and roll until you reach the end of the pastry.
Repeat for the other 3 rolls.
Place on a lined baking tray and brush the tops with soymilk.
Bake in a 180C oven for 20 minutes until golden brown.

Best served while still hot from the oven.


  1. always love sausage rolls and these sound good if they have you running to the blog to share them

    1. Nice to have some old favourite re-invented! :-)

  2. My son is a big fan of these and for a growing boy (of 23) they are also very filling. I like to add mushrooms to mine.

    1. hehe they are always 'growing' aren't they ;-)
      Very easy to add any kind of veggies to these if you don't want it served on the side. Great for hiding shredded veggies for kids too!

  3. How many ounces are in a tin of lentils?

    1. Sorry not sure about ounces, but a standard tin size here is 400g
