Gem's Vegan Sausage Roll

By simply applying some extra herbs, seasonings and onion to the sausage filling it tweaks the taste and turns a simple snack into something absolutely delicious. These rolls are packed full of flavour, 'meaty' but not in an off-putting way, and thanks to the pastry, flaky, light and utterly moreish.
