For National Vegetarian Week

divider
4

These pastries are bound to impress and can be topped with a variety of fruits. If using a different brand of pastry, always check the label to check that it is made to a vegan recipe.

Time to prepare: 10 minutes | Time to cook: 25 minutes | Makes 10 tartlets

1 x 500g/generous 1lb block vegan puff pastry (e.g. Jus-Rol)
220g/7¾oz fruits of the forest, frozen
30g/1oz caster sugar

Apricot glaze

2 tbsp apricot jam
1 lemon, juice only
100ml water

Garnish

A little icing sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/360°F/gas mark 4.
  2. Carefully roll out the pastry until it is 1cm thick. Using a scone cutter, approximately 10cm in diameter, cut out the pastry. Place your cut pastry onto a lined baking sheet.
  3. Place a small amount of frozen fruit in the centre of each pastry circle, and sprinkle with a little sugar. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the edges have risen and are golden.
  4. Carefully place on a cooling rack. While the pastries are baking, place all of the glaze ingredients into a saucepan. Heat gently until the apricot jam has melted.
  5. Finally, brush the cooked pastries with the glaze and dust with a little icing sugar.

Chef’s tip: I have made these with many other fruits. Both frozen and fresh have worked well.
