In my family Christmas Eve is as big a holiday as Christmas. We even prepare special meals to note the day.
One of these dishes is the sweet pastry, always with pumpkin or butter nut squash. This year, I decided to go even further and prepare a vegan dessert for my family to enjoy.
1 packet filo pastry (I’ve used Jus-Rol suitable for vegans filo pastry)
1 small pumpkin/butter-nut squash, grated
1 cup sugar
1 cup walnuts, chopped
Preparation in 5-easy steps:
Mix the grated pumpkin, sugar, walnuts and sultanas
Spread 2 sheets filo pastry and spoon from the filling, well covering, but not too thick
Pour some (not too much) sunflower oil, you can add more sugar if you prefer it very sweet
Wrap the pastry on a roll and put in a well-oiled tray. Continue until all the filling and filo pastry used, put some oil on top
Bake in a heated oven, at 200°C, for 40-45 minutes
Hope you try it as well and please get back in touch with me to share your ideas or recipes your family loves to eat.
