Did you know most commercial puff pastries are actually vegan? Not all of them, mind you, but there are a lot out there. Which means there’s no reason to miss out on rich, filling pies… like this one.
Watch the pot | No really, there are a few points where you might find stuff burning to the bottom. So, keep your eye on it.
Take out the miso | Feel free to drop the miso if you don’t have any. I think it adds a lot, but don’t worry if you don’t have any.
Make a few substitutions | Go ahead and use vegetable oil instead of olive oil, use almond milk (or any other plant-based milk) if you prefer or substitute dried thyme for fresh sprigs. It’s not the end of the world – and definitely not the end of this recipe if you do.
How to make this vegan recipe even cheaper
- If you swap olive oil for vegetable oil, the cost comes down to R 78.19 – or just R 13.03 per serving.
- Do that and take out the miso (though I think it adds something special) for a portion cost of R 12.23, or a total of R 73.40.
- And, of course, you can make it even cheap if you want to make your own pastry. If you’ve got the tie, by all means, but I rarely have the inclination.
