Nutrition: Per slice


  • 6 vegetarian sausages
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 roasted peppers from a jar, chopped
  • 3 rosemary sprigs, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp harissa paste
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp mild curry powder
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • plain flour, for dusting
  • 1 sheet rolled puff pastry
  • 1 tbsp milk (plant-based, if you like)
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds


  • STEP 1

    Chop the sausages into small pieces. Put in a bowl with the onion, garlic, oil, peppers, rosemary, harissa and spices. Season and mix well. Fry over a medium heat for 8-10 mins until the onion is soft. Put in a dish and set aside to cool.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. On a lightly floured work surface, cut the pastry into six rectangles.

  • STEP 3

    Put a heaped spoonful of filling onto one side of the rectangles, leaving a 1-2cm border. Brush some milk over any exposed pastry. Fold into a square and press to seal. Crimp with a fork.

  • STEP 4

    Arrange on a lined baking tray. Brush with more milk and sprinkle over the seeds. Bake for 25-30 mins until golden.
