Lisa Faulkner’s Winter warmer Lunches
Between shorter days, homeschooling, and lockdown 3.0, we need to take the opportunity to take a break. So, if you’re planning on a cobweb-clearing winter walk this weekend, don’t just grab your wellies and woolies. Lisa Faulkner’s soup and sausage roll recipes are perfect for a quick, mid-ramble snack.
VEGGIE SAUSAGE ROLL
Easy to make, easy to adapt, and easy to wolf down on a winter walk – these sausages rolls are a real winner. And with only a couple of switches, you can also make these flaky pastries vegan.
- 6 Vegan or veggie sausages
- 1 Pack of ready-rolled puff pastry (320g)
- Plant-based milk, to glaze
Serves 6 Total Time 35mins
- Onion marmalade (optional spread)
- Ketchup (optional spread)
- Mustard (optional spread)
- Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lay the pastry on a lightly floured surface.
- Place a sausage vertically at the top of the pastry and continue to add them until you’ve reached the other end.
- Roll over the pastry, trim any of the leftovers, and brush with plant-based milk to seal.
- To jazz up your sausage rolls, spread the pastry with onion marmalade (veggie) or with ketchup and mustard (vegan). Roll as above.
- Cut into 6 sausage rolls, glaze with milk, prick the tops with the point of a knife and cook for 20–25 mins.
TOMATO, LEEK AND CANNELLINI BEAN SOUP
To make this soup, just pop all the ingredients in a roasting tin in the oven. It’s as simple as that.
- 6 Tomatoes, cut into cubes
- 4 Leeks, sliced
- 400g Cannellini beans
- 1–2 Garlic cloves
- 1 tsp Smoked paprika
Serves 4 Total Time 1hr
- 1L Vegetable stock
- 1 tsp Marmite
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Preheat the oven to 180°C.
- Chop the tomatoes into small cubes, and put in a roasting tin with a nice glug of olive oil, a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Cook for 20–30 mins.
- Meanwhile slice the leeks, smash the garlic and drain the cannellini beans.
- Add the leeks, garlic and cannellini beans into the tomatoes and sprinkle with the teaspoon of paprika and marmite.
- Then add the stock and stir to combine the ingredients. Cook for a further 30 mins. If your roasting tin doesn’t have a lid, pop some foil over the top.
