Baked Bean Pasties

Perfect Picnic Food

Ingredients

  • 1 Pack of Jus Roll short crust pastry (ready rolled for ease!)
  • 1 tin of baked beans
  • A little vegan spread

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 7/200c
  • Unroll the pastry and using a cutter cut out disks a little bigger than the size of the hole in your muffin tin.
  • Rub a little oil around each muffin tin and then line with the discs.
  • Pop a good spoon of beans into each case and on the top of the beans place about 1/4 teaspoon of the vegan spread. this gives the finished filling a creamy texture!
  • Re- roll the scraps of pastry and cut out the lids.
  • Pop into the oven for about 10 minutes until the pastry is golden!
  • Eat hot or wrap in foil and pop in a thermal lunch bag for a hot picnic treat.

Tips and Cheats

We often make bigger pasties by cutting out large squares, popping a good amount of beans in the middle and folding over. You can even add in some chunks of vegan sausage and vegan cheese for your very own breakfast pasty!

Grilled Mushrooms on Toast

The Best Breakfast!

Ingredients

  • 300g mushrooms sliced
  • tsp vegan spread (Vitalite is our favourite)
  • 2 tsp oil (olive is nice but I love hemp at the moment)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tomatoes halved
  • 2 slices of sourdough (Sainsburys have a vegan one)

Method

  • Heat 1 tsp of oil in a pan and add the mushrooms. Chuck in the spread and season.
  • In a frying pan heat the rest of the oil and add in the tomatoes flat side down.
  • Toast the sourdough.
  • Cook the mushrooms stirring occasionally until the are soft and browning slightly.
  • Flip the tomatoes once brown.
  • This should serve two (I say should) so once it is cooked plate up and enjoy!

Tips and cheats

You can cook a couple of hash browns rather than the toast, the Co-op and Sainsburys ones are really nice. You could add garlic to the mushrooms or even sprinkle generously with parsley. Or serve as a full English with tofu eggs, and a couple of shroomdogs!
