Tis the season for holiday parties and friends, if there’s one thing I enjoy more than holiday desserts it is definitely holiday appetizers and finger foods. Our family has our big Christmas celebration on the 25th of December and so our Christmas Eve tradition every year has always been a very low-key, casual family get-together with appetizers as the main event. That’s right, we celebrate Christmas Eve by sitting around enjoying some of the best made-from-scratch appetizers and hors d’oeuvres I have ever tasted, which is probably the reason behind my love for finger foods…our Christmas Eve appetizer tradition is one of my earliest memories.

Vegetarian Red Lentil Sausage Rolls

 Prep Time 25 minutes
 Cook Time 20 minutes
 Total Time 45 minutes


2 cups cooked red split lentils
2 large red bell peppers roasted and skin removed
3 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
a pinch of cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground fennel seeds
sea salt and pepper
1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese I use a mild white cheddar
3/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
300 grams frozen puff pastry thawed
1 egg
1-2 tablespoons water


  • To the bowl of your food processor (or high powered blendeadd the cooked lentils, roasted red peppers (stems, seeds and skin removed), garlic, parsley, paprika, cayenne, ground fennel and sea salt and pepper.
  • Process or blend until smooth, making sure to scrape down the sides so all the ingredients are incorporated.
  • Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and add the shredded cheese and the breadcrumbs. Mix everything together well with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until the breadcrumbs and the cheese are evenly distributed.
  • Divide the mixture into 3 equal pieces and roll each piece into a long, thin sausage shape the same length as the width of your puff pastry sheet.
  • Wrap each piece tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (refrigerating overnight also works well!).
  • After your filling has sufficiently chilled, remove it from the fridge and preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Unroll your puff pastry and slice it into 3 pieces to wrap around the rolls of lentil filling you've made. Wrap each piece of filling in puff pastry, making sure the seams are on the underside of the large rolls you're creating.
