These vegetarian sausage rolls are flavored with mushrooms, paneer and fresh basil leaves. Perfect appetizer for any gathering!
Do you need a special reason to indulge in some delicious vegetarian baked goodies? Well, I guess the answer is no, especially when they taste as good as their non-vegetarian counterpart. These vegetarian sausage rolls, as the name says, is a customized veggie version of your all time favorite party appetizer – sausage rolls.
These appetizers are easy-to-make and will certainly impress your guests at your next gathering. You can even whip up a batch for yourself and enjoy with your afternoon tea.
The simplest way to make these is with ready-to-use frozen puff pastry sheets readily available from your local grocery store. But you can also use homemade pastry if you have plenty of time. As I want to keep this recipe simple and easy, I’m going to use the pastry sheets I bought on my last shopping trip.
To make the filling vegetarian, I replaced the ground meat in original sausage rolls with mushrooms and paneer. Chop the mushrooms finely so it’ll resemble cooked minced meat. And paneer or Indian cottage cheese adds a lovely texture to the rolls. Again, I used homemade paneer in this recipe. You can find my fool proof recipe to make perfect paneer right here – ‘how to make paneer‘.
Make the filling, fill the pastry, roll and cut – the perfect recipe for some fun time in the kitchen. If you need some extra help with filling and rolling the pastry sheets, I’ve explained all that in the video.
The one special ingredient that I love in this recipe is fresh basil leaves. It really adds an extra flavor to these vegetarian sausage rolls. If fresh ones are not available, add a sprinkle of dried leaves.
I love these meatless sausage rolls as much as the non-vegetarian version. In fact, these are my new favorite appetizers.
Now it’s officially your turn to make these sausage rolls. And I’m pretty sure you’ll love them, too!
