VeganMoFo: Puff Pastry Pockets


Puff Pastry Pockets

I don’t want to call these Hot Pockets. Puff Pastry Pockets seems more appropriate. There is a brand of store bought puff pastry that is accidentally vegan. Good for you? All healthy ingredients? No, but once in awhile isn’t going to hurt you. Dinner needs to be fun sometimes and this a fun meal.

Lentil Chili with Garlicky Greens Puff Pastry Pocket

Whenever we have a leftover stew or chili I like to use them as a filling for these pockets. The last batch I made with a Lentil Chili that my Maa made for a surprise birthday party for me. I sauteed some spinach with a lot of garlic to add a green element to the pocket. 

I spoon some filling onto half of the puff pastry and then fold over the other half and press down on all four sides with a fork to seal the filling inside. Then it’s baked according to package directions. 

Mixed Salad

This particular meal was served with a salad, for even more greens and some roasted potatoes. 

I really want to fill these pockets with a mixed vegetable and bean curry next time. I’m also working on a Broccoli and Cashew Cheese version as well since that was my favorite Hot Pocket growing up!

    These look brilliant, I’m a huge pastry fan and I love the idea of a broccoli and cheese version. Two of my fave’s!

    Oh, fantastic idea. These look great, I would have never added the extra greens, thanks for the reminder it can be easy ;)

    We love these! And we throw left over fruit into the pockets for dessert and then put some custard over it for a bit of a treat!
