Ingredients

  • 1 sheet (half a 17-1/4-oz package) frozen vegan puff pastry sheet
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup diced sweet onions
  • 4 oz. coarse-chopped mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 ounces vegan cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage (or 1/4 teaspoon ground sage)
  • 2 cups roughly torn chunks of cooked Gardein or Beyond Meat vegan chicken, chilled
  • 1/4 cup melted vegan butter, for brushing

Preparation

  • 1 Let puff pastry thaw while you make the filling.
  • 2 Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • 3 Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat.
  • 4 Add sweet onions, mushrooms, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • 5 Saute until sweet onions are translucent and the mushroom liquid has evaporated.
  • 6 Stir in parsley and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • 7 Mix cream cheese, Dijon mustard, thyme, and sage until combined. Set aside.
  • 8 Roll out thawed puff pastry on a lightly floured surface into a 14-inch square. (Rolling between two sheets of plastic wrap makes easy work of this task).
  • 9 Cut the square into 4 equal 7-inch squares.
  • 10 To assemble, divide cream cheese mixture equally among the squares, then top with mushroom mixture, and chilled chicken chunks or strips.
  • 11 Brush edges of the puff pastry squares with melted butter.
  • 12 Bring corners of the pastry square to the center, sealing all edges to contain the filling, created little purses.
  • 13 Place seam-side down on an ungreased baking sheet and brush with melted butter.
  • 14 Bake bundles for 25 minutes until golden brown.
  • 15 Enjoy!
