Croissants

Finding delicious pastries that are suitable for vegans has been rather challenging until recently. So we were over the moon to discover that Jus Rol pastry sells a vegan-friendly refrigerated croissant dough! The packs, which make six croissants, are available in most large supermarkets, alongside other refrigerated pastry. There are also other vegan croissants finding their way slowly into the UK, eg GoVegan Spelt, so keep hunting! 

Preheat the oven according to the packet instructions and roll them up. If stuffing them, do this first then roll - then cook a few minutes for a real treat!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 packet Jus Rol Croissant Dough or similar vegan product
  • Plus any of the options below. Bake each option inside the croissants unless indicated otherwise

Sweet ideas:

  • Dark chocolate spread 
  • Dark chocolate (broken into pieces) with small banana chunks 
  • Jam, topped with vegan whipping cream (add after cooking)
  • Maple and pecan 
  • Marmalade & tahini 

Savoury ideas:

  • Mushroom and vegan cheese
  • Vegan cream cheese and cranberry
  • Sundried tomato and vegan cheese
  • Vegan cheese and vegan bacon
  • Vegan pesto and cream cheese

Method: 

1. Pre-heat the oven according to the packet instructions.

2. Gather together filling ingredients and one packet of croissant dough.

3. Peel open croissant packet and gently remove the roll of pastry.

4. Separate it on a chopping board and cut along the score lines into six separate triangles.

5. Prepare your filling(s) as suggested above. 

6. Place a teaspoon of filling about an inch from the widest edge of each triangle.

7. Roll this edge up over the filling and then continue rolling up to form the croissant shape.

8. Turn the ends in to create a curved traditional croissant shape.

9. Lightly grease a baking tray or line one with baking parchment. Arrange the croissants equally on it. 

10. Glaze the croissants with soya or other plant milk and bake for 10-12 mins or until golden brown, according to packet instructions. Serve warm with coffee or other beverage of your choice!
