50 BEST Plant-Based Puff Pastry Recipes for Vegans

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

All golden brown with flaky layers, the perfect pie crust.

I learned how to make traditional 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. 

Although I do remember a dish hitting the floor once. I think it was an apple crumble. She was not happy!

Store-bought puff pastry sheets

These days, I buy ready-made puff pastry from the supermarket.

Mostly I buy a ready-rolled sheet of puff pastry.

It's a godsend for lazy busy mums and such good quality too. 

Just take it out of the fridge a few minutes before you need it and gently unroll it.

It even comes on greaseproof paper (parchment paper) you can work on and then transfer it onto a baking tray, so you don't have to flour or grease your baking sheet to prevent it from sticking. 

Such an excellent and good quality product.

There's no need to brandish your rolling pin and no need for unevenly rolled pastry.

Much neater than the homemade version, unless you are a whizz at rolling puff pastry.

Is puff pastry suitable for vegans?

Thankfully a lot of the packages of puff pastry and shortcrust pastry available in the shops and grocery stores these days is suitable for vegans. 

From the popular brands like Jus Rol to supermarket own brands, most of them are accidentally dairy-free pastry and still buttery pastry with a flaky texture, just as good as the non-vegan pastry.

Avoid those that say all butter and check on the back for the ingredients, just to make sure it's suitable.

I buy Tesco or Jus Rol which is suitable for vegans and available in a block or ready rolled sheets of pastry. 

What about shortcrust pastry, is it vegan?

Once again Jus Rol come to the rescue with vegan shortcrust pastry, which is great for making quick pasties, homemade pop tarts, fruit and savoury pies. 

Shortcrust pastry is very easy to make, but it is handy to have a packet of ready-made shortcrust pastry in the fridge for quick meals.

The eagle eyed among you will spot that I've included one recipe using shortcrust pastry. 

It's a good one, so I decided to include it. 

It could be made with puff, but wouldn't be easy to hold, so bookmark or pin it for next time you buy a block of vegan shortcrust pastry. 

See if you can spot it.

Is gluten-free pastry any good?

Gluten-free puff pastry has improved so much.

A lot of my readers use it for my recipes with good results, so go ahead and use it for these recipes if you are on a gluten-free diet.

What about rough puff pastry?

Rough puff pastry is an easier version of homemade puff pastry.

There are lots of vegan recipes for this flaky pastry.

Try this easy recipe for homemade ruff puff pastry from The Comfort of My Bowl if you want to make your own.

If you make anything rather special with puff pastry leave a comment and share the idea with us. 


  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!

  18. I love pies but as a vegan I've not had puff pastry fir years. I'm gonna go to check out this treX and see if there any to be had in Ireland

    1. Most puff pastry is ok for vegans. Look out for Jus Roll and supermarket own brands. EVERYONE needs puff pastry in their life.
