Easy Vegan Pesto Puffs | GF

Are you looking for a quick and easy meal using just a few easy to find ingredients? Well then my pesto puffs might just be the thing for you!

I originally came up with these pesto puffs as a way to use the leftovers from my weekly vegetable box. Now that it’s difficult to get hold of some everyday ingredients like pasta and spaghetti, I’ve found myself using this recipe more and more.

The beauty is that as long as you can get hold of some ready made puff pastry and pesto*, the rest is customisable.

I use Gluten Free Jus Rol Puff Pastry which I find has just the right amount of ‘puff’ to it after baking. I then add Sacla Vegan Pesto and a bit of Violife greek style vegan cheese as my base. In my area at least, people aren’t panic buying these items. I’m extremely happy about this as it’s a dreamy combination!

If you can’t get hold of pesto, you can make it from (at this point) easy to get hold of ingredients. See this recipe for inspiration!

I’ve used all sorts of veggie combinations on my pesto puffs over the last few months. These include leeks, spinach, courgettes, peppers, tomatoes, onions and mushrooms. You don’t need very much of each ingredient either, a little goes a surprisingly long way.

Without further ado, let’s get to the recipe shall we?

If you try this recipe, please let me know how you get on and what magical combinations you come up with! You can tweet me your pictures at www.twitter.com/lovedbylaurac .
