Puff Pastry Pockets – Vegan Finger Food

Everyone loved these puff pastry pockets at my birthday party, just like the mini falafel burgers. They’re both hearty and tangy, and you can eat both, stuffed puff pastry & burgers, with your hands. That’s why they’re great for any party like New Year’s Eve which is just around the corner. Just as all the other vegan finger food ideas which I listed in this post, these are also convenient for picnics or a quick and easy dinner.

Ingredients
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 7 oz spinach, frozen (200 g)
  • 1/2 block firm tofu (150 g)
  • 1-2 tbsp tamari/ soy sauce
  • 5 tsp soy flour (alternatively: plant milk)
  • 1 puff pastry dough (vegan labeled) (275 g)
  • 10-12 tsp pesto (vegan labeled or homemade) (60 g)
  • 4 tbsp sun dried tomatoes, finely diced (50 g)
  • 1 tbsp pine nuts (20 g)
  • (black) sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. Lightly braise onion in a pan with some frying oil. Add spinach and stew for a few minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally. Put aside.

  2. Cut tofu in half and then into about 1 inch slices. Sauté in a pan, then deglaze with tamari/ soy sauce. Put aside.

  3. Mix together soy flour with a little water until you end up with a spreadable paste.

  4. Preheat oven to 200° C (400° F).

  5. Roll out puff pastry and cut into squares. Spread about 1 tsp pesto onto each square, leaving about half an inch from the edges. Spread some spinach onto the middle of each square, followed by a slice of tofu, dried tomatoes and pine nuts.

  6. Using a pastry brush, brush along around each square with the soy flour water mixture. Fold sqaures into triangles and press firmly down (using a fork) to seal pockets.

  7. Brush each pocket with the soy flour water mixture (or just plant milk) and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.

  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
