Vegan Friday – Apple turnovers

vegan friday apple turnovers

Cookies, cake, donuts, they all contain eggs or butter, which makes it difficult to find vegan pastries. But it’s deffinitley not impossible! I found vegan puff pastry in a Dutch store called Jumbo, but there are more supermarkets that sell it. You can make delicious pastries with this, like chocolate croissants and one of my favorites apple turnovers!

Ingredients – 10 vegan apple turnovers 

  • 2 apples
  • Vegan puff pastry
  • Raisins
  • Walnuts
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar
  • Half a lemon
These apple turnovers are very easy to make and perfect to do as a family activity. It takes about 25 minutes to make the turnovers, then you bake them in the oven for 15-20 minutes on 220°C.

Personally I love to eat these pastries during Christmas or New Years eve, they look so festive!

  1. Take the puff pastry out of the freezer and let the slices thaw.
  2. Let the raisins soak in water for a bit while you remove the core from the apples and cut them in small pieces.
  3. Put the diced apples, raisins and the cut-up walnuts in a bowl.
  4. Season the mixture with cinnamon, a table spoon sugar and some lemon juice.

5. Take the plastic off the pastry slice and fold it into a triangle. Make sure that the sticky side is on the inside by the way, Kelvin and I learned from that mistake, haha. Press one side of the triangle down so you create a cup.

6. Take out the baking tray and make sure to preheat the oven on 220°C.

7. Fill the cup with the apple mixture and then press down the open side with our fingers. Use the tip of a fork to create a pattern on the outer edges of the turnover. It is not really necessary, but I love the look of it, haha. It is also very nostalgic to me, me and my mom used to make them like this.

8. I have learned to sweep egg-white on top of the turnovers, but because we want to make these turnovers vegan I used water, and let me tell you, they turn out just as brown and crispy!

9. The water also helps to let the sugar stick on top of the turnovers. I used about a tea spoon, but you can always use more or less.
