Loaded full of hidden veggies, this homemade sausage roll recipe by Keira Rumble (of www.krumbled.com) is not only delicious but also gluten-free and packed with nutritious ingredients like hemp seeds, zucchini, lentils, and carrots! “I love to pre-make a big batch of these vegetarian sausage rolls and pop them in the freezer,” says Keria.
You can do this two ways, cook and freeze or freeze uncooked. I find freezing them uncooked is the better option. It keeps the sausage mixture moist and the pastry flakey when you cook them!
Knowing that you simply can’t have sausage rolls without tomato sauce, Keira has created her very own homemade ketchup recipe to go with it. “This easy homemade tomato sauce recipe is a great alternative to that sugar-loaded ketchup you get from the supermarkets. Did you know that your normal supermarket-bought tomato ketchup has over 25% sugar in it? So 1 tablespoon of sugar equates to 4g sugar.”

4. Once your puff pastry is thawed, it is time to start assembling the rolls.
5. Cut your pastry sheet in half (depending on how big the sheet is)
6. Line your pastry up, and spoon the mixture into a log across the pastry,
7. Roll the pastry over mixture and press downside so the mixture is snug

RECIPE: HOMEMADE TOMATO SAUCE
1 garlic clove crushed
2 tablespoon tomato paste
1 cup tomato passata
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 heaped tablespoon onion powder
Salt to taste
Pinch of Pepper
¼ cup olive oil
1. In a saucepan, sauté the garlic in the olive oil until just before brown.
2. Add in the remaining ingredients.
3. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Cook over low heat for 20-45 minutes.
5. The longer you cook, the more flavorsome it becomes so 20 minutes is the least amount of time I would put it on for!
