These Vegan Puff Pastry Pinwheels loaded with savoury mushrooms and gooey vegan cheese are the perfect finger-food party appetizers. They're great for any holiday season, gatherings or parties when your friends are coming over.


Units Scale
  • 1 sheet vegan puff pastry, thawed
  • 250 g mixed mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp dairy-free butter
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 150 g dairy-free cheese
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped (optional)
  • Non-dairy milk for brushing


  1. Preparation: Begin by preheating your oven to 392°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Cook the Mushroom Filling: In a skillet over medium heat, warm up a bit of butter. Add in the onions and sauté them until they are tender. Then add garlic and cook for another few minutes. When the aromatics are soft, add chopped mushrooms and season with thyme. Sauté them until tender and any excess moisture evaporates—season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside to cool.
  3. Prepare the Puff Pastry: Roll out your thawed vegan puff pastry.
  4. Assemble the Pinwheels: Spread the vegan cheese and then the sautéed mushroom mixture evenly over the puff pastry. Sprinkle some nutritional yeast on top of the mushroom mixture.
  5. Roll & Slice: Roll the puff pastry tightly from one edge to form a log. Gently seal the seam. Then, slice the log into 1/2-inch thick pinwheels. Lightly brush the tops with non-dairy milk for that beautiful golden hue. 
  6. Bake to Perfection: Place the pinwheels on the prepared baking sheet, giving them space between each piece. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes until they puff up and turn golden brown.

Sprinkle with fresh parsley and ENJOY!


When cooking the mushrooms, leave the salt off until the last minute; otherwise, your mushrooms will be rubbery. Adding salt would draw out all the moisture from the mushrooms, and you'd be steaming them.

Allow the mushrooms to cool down slightly before adding them to the top of the pastry.
