Croissants

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!

Did you know that Vegan Recipe Club is run by a charity?

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference!
