Helen’s Vegan Cream Cheese & Cranberry Parcels

A real delight as a starter for your table. Make them with bought vegan cream cheeze or make your own with our easy and quick recipe.

Top tip – try experimenting with different fillings in these little parcels – like spinach and mashed tofu with paprika; vegan pesto, cherry tomatoes or garlic mushrooms with the cream cheeze, for example.  


  • ¼ tub vegan cream cheeze like Sheese, Tesco or Tofutti or make your own vegan cream cheese.
  • 225g/8oz packet fresh or frozen filo pastry
  • 25g/1oz vegan margarine, melted
  • 30ml/6tsp cranberry sauce


1. Pre-heat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5.

2. Take 3 sheets of filo pastry at a time. Cut in half so you have 10 12.5cm/4-5 inch squares. Take one square and brush with a little melted butter or margarine. Place another square on top at an angle, and brush again. Do the same with a third sheet

3. Place a teaspoon of cream cheese in the middle of the filo pastry and top with a teaspoon of cranberry sauce. Bring the edges of the pastry up together and pinch them to form a little parcel (money-bag shape). Make up the rest of the parcels in the same way.

4. Brush with melted vegan margarine and place on a greased baking tray.

5. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes until the pastry is crisp and golden. Serve hot with extra cranberry sauce.
