In Malaysia, Singapore, and Hong Kong, it is common to find curry-stuffed turnovers in bakeries. They’re an easy make-ahead appetizer because they can be frozen once assembled and prepared straight from the freezer—just bake them 5 to 10 minutes more than specified below.
  • 1 Tbs. canola oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped (1¼ cups)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)
  • 1 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. curry powder
  • 8 oz. meatless ground, such as Yves (2 cups)
  • 3 Tbs. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. maple syrup
  • ½ cup frozen peas
  • 1 Tbs. finely chopped fresh mint
  • 1 17.3-oz pkg. puff pastry (2 sheets)
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 4 tsp. black sesame seeds, optional

1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Sauté onion 9 to 10 minutes, or until golden. Stir in garlic and curry powder; cook 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add meatless ground, soy sauce, and maple syrup; sauté 5 to 7 minutes. Add peas and mint, and cook 2 minutes more. Cool to room temperature.

2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper, or coat with cooking spray.

3. Cut each puff pastry sheet in half; roll out each half to 91/2- x 51/2-inch rectangle. Spoon 3/4 cup filling along long edge 1/2 inch from edge. Brush egg over edges, and fold puff pastry over filling like a book. Press edges together to seal, and crimp with fork. Transfer log to prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining 3 puff pastry rectangles.

4. Brush tops of logs with egg, and sprinkle with sesame seeds (if using). Bake 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Cut into 11/2-inch-wide slices. Serve hot or at room temperature.

since the puff pastry is frozen and thawed to assemble the logs, is it okay to freeze the assembled logs?

These are fantastic! I make them every year for Christmas Eve and even my carnivorous family loves them! A real treat!

Hate the fake meat, but I think I'll try these with crumbled tempeh!

I made these for a coworkers baby shower at the office. They were a big hit-- even in room full of meat dishes. They were so savory and tasty, no one could believe they were meatless.
