  1. I just tried it out yesterday! I wanted to veganize a puff pastry beef roulade that my husband likes and searched for different fillings, but none have caught my eye. Found your recipe absolutely by accident and thought ‘That’s the one I want to try!’ It turned out great! Had to make a few changes though. I substituted pine nuts for sunflower seeds because I’m allergic to them and also used red kidney beans instead of pinto beans as our supermarkets do not sell pinto beans. Anyway, thank you for the recipe! It’s delicious!
