Strudel is a traditional German pastry that has layered dough. While the traditional version isn’t vegan, vegan strudel only requires a few changes. Often people fill their strudel with apples and place it over a custard cream, but there are so many different ways to make one. Chocolate, apple, tofu, or veggie––whether you prefer savory or sweet, there’s a vegan strudel for you. The options are endless! No matter the occasion or time of day, it’s always a good idea to have a vegan strudel. You have to try one of these––they are all so delicious!
