From the cookbook "Vegan Lunch Box" by Jennifer McCann, these little treats are fabulous!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, spray with non-stick spray and set aside.
  2. Have a small bowl of water and a clean, floured pastry board ready.
  3. Chop walnut (food processor makes it easy) into very small bits. Scrape into large bowl.
  4. Chop brown rice and chickpeas in food processor until mixture forms a coarse mash. Add this to the mixing bowl along with oat bran, spices, soy sauce, mustard and peanut butter. Knead together until it holds its shape.
  5. Unfold the first sheet of puff pastry and roll into a 12x12 square. Cut into six rectangles about 6x4.
  6. Scoop up a handful of the nut loaf mixture and form it into a small rectangular loaf (about 3x1x3/4 inches). Place in the center of a puff pastry. Dip your fingers in the water and lightly wet the top of the loaf.
  7. Fold the short ends of the pastry over the loaf, then fold up the long edges using some water to seal it shut.
  8. Place the mini Wellington seam side down on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the other 5.
  9. Bake at 400F for 25 minutes. The crust should be puffed and golden and the inside heated through.
  10. The Wellingtons can be made ahead and refrigerated until it's time to bake.

These things are awesome! I was weary about this one, but OMG I will make these again! Try them! I didn't have oat bran, so I ground 1 cup old fashioned oats and it appears to have worked out just fine. Only other change was adding a bit of black pepper.I got 8 rolls (ran out of filling, not dough - so next time I might make 1 1/2 X the filling to get a full 12) I never had a wellington, or a sausage roll, but whatever these are they 5 stars in my book!

AMAZING! I have this cookbook, and have been DYING to try these for a while, and they turned out even better than I thought they would. Just a note: this full recipe actually makes 12 Wellingtons (at least for me it did, since my 1lb package of puff pasty had 2 sheets inside it) The flavor of the nut loaf is perfect! I used 3/4 tsp of poulty season in place of marjoram and thyme, and maybe added a couple tsp of Braggs Liquid Aminos to the mix as well.

Very good recipe! I loved the texture of the "meat mix" and the spices were spot on. I did 1/2 again the spices and soy sauce and added 1/4 teaspoon of liquid smoke. This gave it the burst of flavor I was looking for! Love, Love, Love these.
