25 Awesome Puff Pastry Recipes for Vegans

I don't know about you, but I love puff pastry.

I learned how to make puff pastry from scratch at school with my very strict and old fashioned cookery teacher. It seemed to take hours to make. All the careful folding and then more folding. She watched our every move like a hawk. We didn't dare make a mistake.

These days I buy ready made puff pastry and if I can get away with it, ready rolled puff pastry. It's a godsend for lazy busy mums and such good quality. Lucky for me it's usually vegan too.

I'm always playing about with new recipes using puff, but I love looking for inspiration among my blogger friends too. Here are 25 of the best vegan puff pastry recipes for you to try.

For the eagle eyed among you (I'm all about the birds of prey today), you'll spot one recipe that's for shortcrust pastry. It's a good one, so I decided to leave it. It could be made with puff, but wouldn't be easy to hold, so bookmark it for next time you buy shortcrust pastry.

  1. These look so good! I've never cooked with puff pastry before but I always want to especially around the holidays! I'm pinning for later!

  2. Some really lovely ideas there Jac, need to bookmark lots of these. The first time I did 'Veganuary' I didn't realise shop-bought puff pastry was vegan until the last few days of the month, and it was such a revelation! Thanks for including my Bombay Potato Bites.

    1. It's such a good ingredient. I didn't realise until Graham became vegan either.

  3. These look delish! As a new vegan, I'm always looking for inspiration so thanks. x

  4. I'm intrigued as to how puff pastry can be vegan? Isn't there butter in it? Admittedly I've never perused the ingredients on ready mad stuff. Great selection of ideas whether you're vegan on not.

    1. Same as flapjacks Claire. Have a look next time you pick up a packet of jus-rol. Only homemade tends to have butter in it and yes fab recipes.

  5. This is a great post and a big reminder to myself to get some puff pastry next time i'm at the shops. I haven't used it over the summer much at all, but it's such a staple for quick term-time after-school suppers and desserts. Thanks!

    1. It's a great standby. So many options and no one ever says no.

  6. O what a lovely round-up! I'm still in need of a gluten-free/vegan puff pastry here in the states!

    1. Well hopefully you will find one, it's a right faff to make yourself.

  7. Great roundup - I had no idea most commercial puff pastry was vegan! I always assumed it was similar to homemade.

  8. What a great selection of recipes! I have a love/hate relationship with these kinds of posts...I love that the recipes are all collected in one place and that they're all so delicious looking and sounding....I hate that I know I'll never get around to trying them all and so I can't decide where to start! 😉

    1. I know what you mean, it's quite a collection and hard to know what to try first.


  9. I love all these lovely recipe ideas. I cheat too and use the ready rolled type.

  10. ALL of these look so delicious! Hard to choose what to make. ;-)

  11. I dont know about you but i now really appreciate those strict teachers I had growing up! These look so fun! Cant wait to try a couple of these recipes!! Love your post!

  12. Puff pastry is one of my favorites for dessert, unfortunately it's hard to find prepared vegan puff pastry in my area. Everything has butter. All of these recipes are making me drool!

  13. I looove puff pastry - a veggie puff tart is such an easy dinner. I'm intrigued by the puff pastry waffles - what a good idea!!

  14. Love love LOVE puff pastry and haven't had it for ages. The portobello one looks rather good!

  15. So many ideas! Not sure where to start! I have lots of puff pastry to use, so I'm excited to see this post.

  16. I'm on an absolute beginner level when it comes to pastries (not that I'm on any field advanced or even pro, haha). This is great to get started and see what's possible!! Thanks a bunch :-)

  17. Loving all the options! I've never attempted making my own puff pastry but store-bought, that I can do!
