I don’t often buy pre-packaged food because I always assume it has some sort of hidden, non-vegan ingredient in it, most often eggs. But some days get super busy and it’s easier to have something on hand that can make a substantial meal without making everything from scratch. I love finding ‘accidentally’ vegan food that I’d previously steered clear from because I assumed it contained dairy. One of my favorite finds is the crescent rolls from Trader Joe’s. Pillsbury crescent rolls are also vegan but I prefer the ingredients of the TJ brand.
Crescent rolls are probably the most simple food in the world to make and they can be stuffed with almost anything. I love broccoli and cheese together, so I filled them with a combo of the two. Once you follow the recipe and make this once, you will learn that you can easily fill this with a variety of fruits, veggies, etc. to your liking. After baking, this ring easily pulls apart, making it the perfect food to bring to a party.
Vegan Broccoli & Cheese Crescent Roll Ring
- 1 canister vegan crescent rolls
- 2 cups broccoli
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- to taste salt & pepper
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 cup vegan cheese
- 1/4 cup red onion, sliced
- to top oregano
1. Pre-heat the oven to 350F.
2. In a mixing bowl, add broccoli, 1 tbsp olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Stir to coat. On a baking pan, bake for 10 minutes, flip, and bake for another 10 minutes.
3. While the broccoli is baking, arrange the crescent roll triangles into a circle on a cookie sheet, overlapping each piece. Brush each piece of dough with a little bit of olive oil.
4. Remove the broccoli from the oven and add it on top of the dough ring on the inside edge. Top with onion and cheese.
5. Wrap the triangle points up and over the broccoli and cheese stuffing and tuck them under the inside of the ring.
6. Sprinkle oregano on top of dough.
7. Bake for 10 minutes and remove from oven.
