  • 3/4 cup vital wheat gluten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • A dash of oil
  • 1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard
  • 1/2 a red apple (peeled and chopped into small pieces)
  • 1 pack puff pastry
  • 4 tablespoons aquafaba (liquid from a can of chickpeas)


  1. In a bowl, mix together the vital wheat gluten, garlic powder, smoked paprika, salt, pepper, and nutritional yeast.
  2. Stir in the oil, mustard, and vegetable stock. Mix it up to form a dough.
  3. Knead the dough for a couple of minutes.
  4. Cut the puff pastry in half lengthways, so you have two long rectangles.
  5. Split the dough into two and roll out two long sausages. Place one in the center of each piece of puff pastry (lengthways).
  6. Top each sausage with apple.
  7. Brush the aquafaba down one length of each piece of puff pastry.
  8. Roll the dough over the sausage and press down to seal the pastry roll.
  9. Cut each roll into eight, score the tops and brush them with the remaining aquafaba.
  10. Place the rolls onto a lined baking tray and bake at 355°F, for 20-30 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.


*Aquafaba is the liquid from a can of chickpeas.
