The Ordinary Vegan - Jus-Rol Croissants

Every Monday on Vegan Vox Blog is the feature - The Ordinary Vegan, which features everyday supermarket items which happen to be vegan! This week it is the turn of Jus-Rol Croissants. Now, I don't know about you, but when I think of croissants, I think of butter, so finding a ready to roll croissant pack that was all vegan I was a bit skeptical.

These are found in the chiller aisle of the supermarket with other pre-made pastry. They are in a cardboard roll and are kept in the fridge. They have a fairly short shelf-life as it is fresh dough inside, so only last a few days in the tube before you have to bake them. 

They are really quick and easy to make. You just tear the perforated strips of pastry off roll into a croissant shape and bake in the oven for 10 minutes or so. You can add crushed up dairy-free chocolate buttons into the dough before you roll it for chocolate croissants which I did.

Then, once baked and cooled on a wire rack, you can sprinkle with a little icing sugar, or serve with jam and dairy-free spread.

Overall, they are a little synthetic tasting, and have a slightly bitter aftertaste. However, if you have people popping over for breakfast or would like something quick and easy as a breakfast treat, they are good value, quick and easy and most importantly vegan! I would rate them 3/5.

If you prefer homemade cooking from scratch then check out the blog every Tuesday for my Vegan Recipe of the Week. Tomorrow is Raw Almond Cookie Bites and Part 2 of the UK Vegan Food Swap post.

Big Vegan Love,
