Because we’re all tight for time on Christmas day, to speed up the recipe I use the Jus-Rol gluten free & vegan puff pastry sheets!

(This is NOT a sponsored recipe)

Almost all good supermarkets stock these now which just take the pressure of making your own pastry around Christmas which is already busy enough.


For that reason, this lentil stuffing is packed full of flavour with minimal effort to prepare.

Therefore, I wanted to make a delicious vegan wellington stuffing but that was super quick/easy to make with no blending required.


Here is a step by step process of how to put this homemade gluten free & vegan Wellington together.

  • 2 sheets gluten free puff pastry (I use Jus-Rol pictured above)
  • 200 g chestnut mushrooms finely chopped
  • 150 g pre-cooked chestnuts finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 2x 400 g cans of pre-cooked lentils (drained and rinsed)
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 2 tbsp gluten free & vegan gravy granules/powder
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • large sprig rosemary finely chopped
  • large sprig thyme finely chopped
  • olive oil


  • Firstly pre-heat your oven to 200C
  • Now to a large pan, add a drizzle of olive oil, 200g chopped mushroom, 150g chopped chestnuts and 2 tbsp Tamari and cook together for a few minutes until the mushrooms soften and brown off
  • Now add the drained lentils (make sure no excess liquid), 2 crushed garlic, 2 tbsp gravy powder, 1 tbsp tomato puree, 2 tsp dijon mustard, large sprig of rosemary and thyme finely chopped and mix
  • Cook together for a couple minutes, then take off the heat and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes
  • Meanwhile place your first pastry sheet onto a baking tray then spoon on the lentil mix making sure to not go right to the edges, give it some height I aim for 2 inches and keep it compact
  • Once the shape is formed (see the step by step photo in the photos above) place the next pastry sheet on top and press tightly round the edges
  • Cut off any excess pastry (save for shapes) then press round the edges with a fork before slicing a few lines into the top to release steam, now lightly glaze the top with olive oil
  • Place in the oven at 200C for 20 minutes until lightly golden, allow to sit for 5 minutes before slicing (make sure to cut carefully with a shape knife)


TIP: if you're really tight for time you could prep this the day before, place in the fridge sealed overnight, then glaze with olive oil and bake on the day (may need extra 5-10 minutes from chilled)
