Yes occasionally I do bake and try foods off ration. I try not to do it too often but once in a while it satiates my need to experience new things and I do so love cooking!
I wanted to try a recipe I had seen online but convert it to a ‘Vegan Party Food’ and I also tried a very quick video style (one handed with my phone!) which I think I would like to adapt using 1940s music for some of my recipes going forward (although I think some of the iconic 40’s recipes deserve longer videos to tell the story!).
I’ll set a page up for occasional vegan recipes as I know there are a lot of people out there moving away from dairy etc because of lactose intolerance and ethical reasons and I really don’t want to have to create another blog or website when my main passion is historical cooking!!!
I’m catching up on life a bit here and really looking forward to creating some 1940s Christmas Recipes and also some wartime Christmas decorations too which I will of course photograph and video for the blog to share.
Lots of love
All ingredients from Sainsbury’s!
1 roll of Puff Pastry (Just Roll is suitable for Vegans)
Dairy free margarine
Dried mixed herbs
Dairy free cheese, I used half Vio-Life Mozerella and half Cheezly
3 or 4 spring onions chopped finely
Parchment paper for baking tray
Roll out the puff pastry sheet leaving the backing on
Spread a very thin layer of margarine
Spread a thin layer of tomato puree
Sprinkle on the grated dairy free cheese (I used half a block of each)
Sprinkle on lots of dried mixed herbs
Sprinkle on the chopped spring onions
Roll the pastry sheet up into a sausage shape
Create pin wheels by chopping into slices about 1/2 inch thick (mine made 12)
Place on baking tray
Cook in a pre-heated oven at 200 c for 20 mins until golden brown
Remove, leave to cool so not hot

Those look delicious, I’m looking forward to your wartime Christmas decorations and recipes, I love Christmas, I’ve just watched the wartime farm at Christmas, loved it! Xxx
Hmm these sound really tasty – thank you!
Oh Carolyn, don’t these look lovely! I’m getting (slowly) away from meat, though not dairy yet as I cook for my family of men, don’t want to go too quickly! If I can find a good tasting non- dairy cheese, I’ll try it!
Thank you Carolyn; I look forwards to your always excellent posts!
