Soy-rolls with pesto

At the bakery where I work we always sell sausage rolls, and they are really tempting to taste when they’ve just gotten out of the oven.

I have to keep reminding myself that apart from being a vegetarian, I’m actually not a big fan of the texture you get in most sausages, just the thought of chewing down on a lump of fat actually makes me cringe, yet the warmness of the roll itself really appeals to me.

So finally, I’ve made my own! Using soy-based sausages of course, and luckily I really do prefer the texture of these good fellas instead 😀

For filling you can choose from a wide variety of sauces, I prefer mine with either ketchup or pesto though 😀


  • Soy-based sausages
  • 25 g margarine (plantbased)
  • 250 ml soymilk
  • 25 g of fresh yeast
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 400 g all-purpose flour

+ your filling

How to do:

  1. Heat up your milk and margarine in the microwave.
  2. Dissolve your yeast into the mixture
  3. Add the rest of your ingredients (apart from the sausages)
  4. Place the dough in a bowl and set it aside for 1 hour.
  5. Once 1 hour has gone you knead the dough and divide it into six pieces.
  6. Turn on your oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  7. Roll out each piece like a square and brush some of your favorite filling on the inside, place a sausage and wrap it up.
  8. Place the rolls on a sheet of baking paper, cover it up with a towel and let it rest for another 15 minutes.
  9. Brush your soyrolls with some soymilk or water and bake them for approximately 20 minutes.
  10. Enjoy!
