Spicy 3 Bean Sausage Rolls

3 Bean Sausage Rolls 

Don't you just love puff pastry?

I do.

I learned how to make it from scratch at school and it's pretty satisfying, but life's too short and ready-made is pretty good quality. So if you have the time,  make your own, otherwise make these Spicy 3 Bean Sausage Rolls with shop bought pastry.

Did I mention they are vegan too? So everyone is happy and we love them, but hey it's puff pastry. What's not to love?

I gave the beans and spices a few pulses (pulses haha!) in my Optimum 9400 blender, but you could just mash them in a bowl. Do leave some whole beans, it's good for the texture.

Now the spices, I didn't make them overly spicy as Cooper was eating them, but feel free to increase the amount of spice you use.

I do hope you give these a try.

Veggie Bean Puff Rolls


As you can see I served them nursery style with chips and peas.

The chips were healthier than usual as I cooked them in another new toy, my Philips Air Fryer from Tesco Direct. I still can't get over the fact it only takes ½ tbsp of oil to cook enough chips for 4 people. Isn't technology great?

And of course we all had a dollop of ketchup on the side. Shhhhhhh! don't tell anyone!

    1. Thanks Becca, I love them too. I can't resist puff pastry so I try to limit how often I have it.

  2. These sound delicious and something I'd definitely give a go if I had all the ingredients on a whim. I'd put them with a salad if I was trying to be abit healthy but I'd keep the big dollop of ketchup because I'm in love with the stuff! (P.s. I'd still prefer chips over the salad, that's just to make myself feel better!)

  3. I'm not usually one for anything in my rolls apart from real sausage, but these could convert me. They look delicious!

  4. Fabulous looking "sausage rolls" Jacs, I'd love to eat those! As I'm not a vegetarian, someone said they would use nutritional yeast in my Cheddar & Apple Chutney Soda Bread the other day so does that mean I could use grated cheese instead? Are they similar in taste?
    Well jel of the air fryer too as I spent an afternoon researching them and would love to have one:-)

    1. Yes nutirtional yeast does have a cheesey flavour and you could add cheddar to these and they'd be absolutely delicious. I have to say I am enjoying the air fryer. I'm going to try pastry in it next actually.

    1. You should Chloe. I have another recipe over at Great British Chefs using the more traditional soya mince. They are really good to and have a different flavour. Just click on my GBC link on the side bar and have a look under my author profile.

  7. These look lovely - I love puff pastry but never think of making sausage rolls because I don't eat meat. I will think again! Is the air fryer good? I've been looking at them but so far haven't bought one because I can't figure out how they work!

    1. You would love these Helen. I am really liking the Philips is has quite a sleek look and really easy to use. You just soak the chipped potatoes in water for a while then pat them dry and pop the in a bowl with half a tbsp of oil and toss, then pull out the drawer and pop them in. Then turn the timer to the time you need and just give them a turn half way through. Really easy and it's a doddle to clean. If you have Tesco vouchers you could put them towards it and you'll get points which is always a bonus.

  8. These are great! Definitely going to give them a go.

  9. My veggie teen will love these - and it'll give me an excuse to use some nutritional yeast which I bought at great expense and seem not to have used very much.

  17. These are going on the list for next week, they'd be really popular in our house. My husband longs for a deep fat fryer and I refuse to even think about it so I'm really interested in the air fryer.

    1. Ahh well the air frier ma be the thing for you then. He gets hi treats but you know they are fairly healthy. Oh and enjoy the sausage rolls :)

  18. I agree that life is too short to not just use ready made puff pastry. I would love to try these. Oh and seriously only 1/2 tbsp. of oil for all those chips?

    1. I know, I was amazed too. I mean that is nothing and I used rapeseed oil with is also super healthy. Less cleaning up also. I am going to try pastry in the frier too.

    1. I used the ultimate shortcut and used tinned beans, which are pretty darn good, but you can cook your own.

  21. Ketchup is essential stuff, tomatoes are great for you so you can fool yourself happily its a healthfood!

    Love the look of your 'sausage' rolls, are one of my favourites but will definitely try a sausage free one!

  23. I made puff pastry at school once but can't remember how it turned out - just remember it being a lot of rolling out - much prefer to buy it and love sausage rolls - haven't made any for ages - highly recommend the liz o'brien's recipe I have on my blog which tastes like the sausage rolls we always had as kids and has lots of protein in it - you can even veganise it with tofu. Love all the beans in these and agree that anything in puff pastry is brilliant

    1. It may be best not to make your own as you would just b horrified at the amount of butter in it. At last when you buy the pastry you can pretend lol! I'll have a look at that recipe Johanna. Thanks :)

  24. This recipe looks delicious! I do love a good sausage roll and this is a perfect alternative to the norm. I will be trying it out in a few days. I've also added it to my top 5 posts of the week :D

  27. these were delish, except i used 2tsp instead of 4Tbs of cumin, because i used 2Tbs the first time and it was sooo spicy? i also used 1/2tsp of chili powder because mum is a chili wuss.
