By popular request – Melissa, one of the chefs at Circa’s Wharfside Restaurant has provided the recipe for the fabulous vego rolls enjoyed by many at The Shifting Thinking Conference!

Vegetarian roll recipe

1 small onion
1 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup walnuts
1 Tbsp dried sage
2 cloves garlic
salt and pepper
3 eggs
2 Tbsp dark soy sauce
1/2 cup bread crumbs
3/4 cup rolled oats
Puff pasty sheets – cut into rectangles
egg or milk to brush over pasty

Place onion, cottage cheese, walnuts, sage, garlic and seasoning in a food processor and process for about 30 seconds. Add the remaining ingredients and process until at desired consistency (some people like it a little more chunky, I tend to process it well).
Brush the edge of the pastry with beaten egg or milk and place a line of filling down the center. Roll into a log and cut into desired shape and brush the top with egg mix or milk.
Cooking time will vary with the size of the rolls, 200 degrees for between 20-40 minutes – until golden brown. Delicious with a good chutney and side salad.

The mix is versatile – I also use it to make vegetarian meat balls and hamburger patties (so the balls/patties will hold their shape make the mix a bit thicker by adding an extra 1/4 cup each of oats and bread crumbs). It is also delicious baked in a loaf tin to make a vegetarian meat loaf. Try adding some sautéed grated carrot and an extra handful of mixed nuts and seeds (roughly chopped).

Cheers Melissa!

    Those vegetarian sausage rolls were seriously good and I didn’t feel guilty eating them.

    HA!! I *love* that shiftingthinking is a place where you can find not only serious, difficult, open-ended educational questions and dilemmas – but also vegetarian sausage roll recipes!

    If only the recipe for 21st century schools were so straightforward…
