Vegan Puff Pastry Recipe

Tully Zander
For many vegan friends that I have, this dish is one of the few dishes which go into the menu twice a week. This dish does not involve a lot of ingredients and is super quick and easy to make. Following is the list of puff pastry ingredients you will require along with the recipe to make the vegan puff pastry.

  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 & 1/2 cup Bread Flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 120 g Vegan Butter
  • 1 l Ice Cold Water
  • 2 tsp Lemon Juice (Optional)
  • 1/4 cup Vegan Shortening (Can use Crisco, check its vegan status in this post)


  • Take a medium-sized mixing bowl (or any other vessel of your choice) and add the all-purpose flour and salt in the vessel and continue whisking and make sure there are no lumps created.
  • After appropriate whisking, add ice cold water and about 1 teaspoon of lemon juice (lemon juice will give a juicy flavor to the dough).

  • Mix all the ingredients well and make a perfect vegan puff pastry dough.
  • Give the dough shape of a ball and with the help of a butter knife, cut an X shape on the top of the dough. Cover the dough up with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 3-4 hours.
  • Take another medium-sized mixing bowl and add vegan butter (you can also use Jif peanut butter), vegan shortening and all-purpose flour. Mix them well until formed in a mixture.
  • Keep the obtained mixture in a plastic wrap and give it the shape of a square. Refrigerate the butter square for 1-2 hours minimum.
  • Take your previously prepared dough and place it on a floured surface. Prepare your dough into a square-shape (bigger than the vegan butter) and roll it 3-4 times from all sides.

  • Now take your vegan butter and place it diagonally on the prepared dough
  • Using your hands, fold the dough from all 4 sides as if you are wrapping a gift. The obtained product will be another square covered with dough all around. Make sure to pinch the dough from all sides to seal properly
