The classic pig in a blanket recipe usually consists of a hot dog or sausage wrapped in buttery puff pastry. With the right ingredients, you can easily turn this meat-based recipe into a vegan version that tastes even better.
We processed carrots and parsnips into small sticks and then used them as a filling for the pastries. Then we replaced the plain butter dough with one dairy-free, low-fat alternativeand done!
If, like us, you can snag rainbow carrots, you have a gorgeous and colorful combo. Red carrots in particular look the same when cooked as pork sausages. Your guests will hardly notice the difference!
We first roasted these root vegetable sticks with a delicious seasoning of garlic, thyme and parsley. Then we wrapped them in small rectangles of puff pastry and brushed them with sesame seeds before baking.
These are vegan pigs in a blanket so incredibly delicious You won’t believe they have this less than 70 calories per pastry. And the good news is they’re great both warm and cold, which is perfect if you want to make them ahead of time and take them to a party.
