Vegan Mofo: Sos-Stuffing Roly Poly

After my previous success with the Faux Chick’n Spread from Old English Cookery, I decided to revisit it. Whilst flicking through the book I came across a recipe for a Bacon Roly Poly. Ah, pastry, my worst enemy…or is it? My game pie came out pretty good, perhaps it was time for me to crack out the veggie suet and try a different kind of pastry. I had been considering doing a dessert Roly Poly, as it I used to love them as a kid and it would be nice to veganise a classic. It was hard to choose but I decided to go with a modified Bacon Roly Poly because let’s me honest, it’s weirder than a jam sponge.

Sos-Stuffing Roly Poly
  • 340g self raising flour 
  • 140g veggie suet
  • pinch salt
  • 1 packet sosmix
  • 1 packet stuffing
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 5 mushrooms, sliced
  • soya milk to brush

  1. Heat the oven to 200C.
  2. Prepare the sosmix and stuffing in separate bowls.
  3. To make the pastry mix the flour, suet and salt. Add a little water and knead until a dough is formed. I don’t know how much water to use. Apparently in the old days people magically learnt how to make suet pastry as soon as they left the womb, because there were no instructions on how much water to use and I didn’t think to measure any. Sorry!
  4. Roll the pastry out and layer the ingredients on top. I started with sosmix, then onions and mushrooms and crumbled the stuffing on top.
  5. Carefully roll the pastry up nice and tight, shaping the pastry into a nice neat log. Pop it onto a baking tray. Brush soya milk on the outside of the roll and bake for 30 minutes.
Serves 8

I’m really surprised the pastry came out so well, that I rolled it without it falling apart and that it baked perfectly and came out a beautiful golden colour. I love how easy this was. The original recipe suggested boiling the roll for 2.5 hours but I cannot afford to have my gas hob running that long and dammit, I was hungry, so I recommend baking.
This tasted so fricking great. The outside was a nice crispy, flaky pastry but the inside of the roll was soft like a dumpling. Amazing! I picked an apple onion and sage stuffing which worked great with the sosmix and I loved the little bites of sweet apple coming through. It was rad.
I love stodgy food and this was just perfect, served with mushy peas, mash and onion gravy it was a perfect dinner. Definitely something I’ll consider making for my next epic roast or for Christmas. Delicious! The only change I’d make is that next time I’d roll it tighter so I get a nicer swirl on the inside of it.

  1. wow! this looks and sounds amazing. Good for you, figuring out the pastry even without any specific measurements. Just tonight I had a recipe that called for “2 cups cooked couscous,” but never told me how to cook my couscous. I had to look it up in another book like a noob. It's so weird that you have already posted for the 23rd, because here it is only just 12:30am and yet you have already had dinner. I'm off to bed!


  2. haha I've probably made it super confusing for you as I generally cook the dish for each Mofo the night before the post, so i just have to write it up the next morning. I work long shifts so would end up blogging too late if I did it on the day 🙂


  3. This definitely looks like a success!
    My mum just brought a cookbook full of vintage Country Women's Association recipes and flicking through it reminds me so much of your theme – some truly horrifying recipes inside!
