Strudel (either savory or sweet like an Apple Strudel) is something we eat quite a lot here in Austria, so I thought it’s time to put a savory strudel on the blog as well. This strudel is filled with potatoes and spinach – one of my favorite combos of all time, but of course you can use other fillings as well!

The filling for the savory strudel: potatoes, spinach and red onion

I’ve used store-bought vegan puff pastry for this recipe. Puff pastry is one of the few things that I don’t want to make from scratch because I tried and I failed :D. Remember the Cilantro Lemon Sunflower Seed Dip I’ve posted? It’s the perfect sauce to serve with this vegan Potato & Spinach Strudel.

How the make a savory vegan strudel

As you can see, this Potato & Spinach Strudel is so easy to make! Prepare the filling, place it onto the puff pastry, fold it, close the edges and bake. Yumm! It’s perfect for quick lunches or dinners!

Ingredients
 
 

  • 2 1/2 cups chopped potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon whole cumin
  • 1 red onion , chopped
  • 1 vegan puff pastry dough*
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt + more to taste

Instructions
 

First prepare the filling:

  • Boil the potatoes in water until soft. Meanwhile heat a pan with olive oil and add the cumin and chopped onions, cook until the onion is translucent. Add the spinach to the pan, only until wilted (you don't need any heat for this). Once the potatoes are soft, drain them. And add them to the pan. Season everything with salt, mix together, and let the filling cool off. 
  • Pre-heat the oven to 400°F / 200°C.
  • Place the potato & spinach filling on the puff pastry, fold it and close the edges.
  • Bake it in the oven for about 25 minutes, until the puff pastry got a nice, golden color.
  • Serve with a homemade Cilantro Lemon Sunflower Seed Dip, for example, and enjoy.

Notes

*Dimensions: 16x9 inches or 42x24 cm. A lovely reader told me that Whole Foods has a vegan puff pastry dough (usually near the ice cream section). If you know any vegan puff pastry brands from your country, please let me know! :)

instead of puff pastry, use phyllo, it is vegan

How many sheets of puff pastry did you use?

Bianca

Wednesday 6th of July 2016

Hi Michelle, I used one sheet of puff pastry. The ones I get here are usually 40x24cm = about 15x9 inches large, so if you're using a smaller one, you might want to take two or more and pinch them together or just make a smaller portion of the strudel. You can see how large they are in this photo https://www.elephantasticvegan.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/process.jpg

Tried this yesterday and it came out delcious! I added a bit of Garam Masala and a bit more Curry Powder, but really thats just bc I love curry powder! In terms of vegan puff pastry dough, I am from Germany and I bought the Rewe housebrand one.

We (I'm from Austria) are really lucky to have vegan puff pastry in pretty much every store, right? :) People from the US have to do much more digging and searching. Garam Masala sounds like an excellent addition and I'm a huge curry powder fun myself so I completely understand you. Glad you liked it, Nik!

This looks delicious and so easy! I was just thinking about how I haven't worked with puff pastry in a while then I saw this in my feed. It's a sign :)

It's definitely a sign, Hannah. Savory strudel is one of my favorite dishes to make with puff pastry. But I also really like to make easy pinwheels like these Pumpkin Basil Pinwheels or Wild Garlic Pesto Snails. Just to give you a few more ideas :)

I don't know if you're from the US, but readers have told me they found vegan puff pastry in a Whole Foods (usually near the ice cream section). :)
