Puff Pastry- Samosas and Jam puffs.



I have used puff pastry a few times this week. And it's vegan!

So first of all. I made samosas for dinner tonight and they turned out great. Usually they would be made with filo pastry but the puff pastry is a lot easier to use. They turned out extremely good. I had never made them before. To make the filling, what you need is ( I don't give any mesaurements really as you can have as little or as much as you want:
But aproxameltly:
-A good handful of diced butter nut squash
-A good handful of diced carrots
-'' '' '' red onion
I baked these together in olive oil until soft.
Meanwhile:
-Blanche a handful of chopped cauliflour, Peas and pea string things.. (?) hah
- Chop some chilli and a few mushrooms and spinach.
-In a sauce pan add oil, 2 teaspoons of curry powder, 1 teaspoon of coriander and cumin seeds.

When the carrots, onion and squash are finished cooking, add everything into the saucepan and stir for a while until everything is coated.
I had falafels and some left over veg curry so I broke up some falafel into it and added a couple teaspoons of the curry to moisten it up.



I cut out about 4 large diamond shape in the rolled out pastry placed some of the mixture to one half and then folded over. Then wet the pastry a little and popped into the oven for about 20 mins.




And for the left over pastry!! Squish it all together and roll it back out flat. Cut little triangle and circle shapes out and fill with jam or chocolate or jam and peanut butter. These tasted so good!

I never would have thought of making samosas with jus-rol, it's a great idea! You should try the jus-rol croissant dough, they're great with chocolate spread :D

I'm definitely going to try making samosas with jus-rol, they look yummy. And some puff pastry with homemade peanut butter and banana :) (unfortunately Panda and most other shop bought peanut butter contains palm oil)
