Vegan Chocolate Samosas… the magic is already in the name don’t you think? ;P
I simply love getting creative with sweet combinations in the kitchen, and a creative outburst is probably also the best way to explain the creation of these vegan chocolate samosas. They are a perfectly indulgent breakfast option – but they also work well as a snack, as a dessert or simply to wow your friends at the next dinner party!
This recipe is:
- gluten free option
- palm oil free
- easy & quick to create
- simple to adapt to your taste
- super delicious!
- the wow-factor comes included!
Originally, I’ve seen this folding technique over on Bianca Zapatka‘s Instagram stories and it inspired me to give it a go myself and experiment with different fillings (both sweet and savoury!). And the magic also appears in the way these are folded – the samosas are simply created from whole wheat tortilla wraps, something you can find in pretty much every UK supermarket nowadays. To hold these pockets together I’ve used a sticky mixture of flour and water (2 parts flour, one part water). It’s a truly amazing edible glue for occasions like these!
Let me show you the folding process for these vegan chocolate samosas in a little more detail:
- Firstly, cut your tortilla wraps into quarters. I like using a pizza cutter for this as it’s the simplest and easiest way, but you can also use a sharp knife instead. Start the folding process by laying a quarter in front of you, with the tip pointing away. In the meantime create a ‘glue’ type mixture by combining 2 parts flour with 1 part water in a small bowl.
- Now fold over the bottom right corner, so that the pointy end at the bottom is in line with the tip of the quarter. Spread gently with a little water/flour mixture. You really only need to use a little of this edible glue.
- Fold over the bottom left corner to stick it onto the glue surface.
- Voila – you’ve magically created a pocket! Start filling it with chocolate spread and your favourite fruits, but ensure not to overfill it, so you can still comfortably close the pocket afterwards.
- Spread a little more glue on the inside of the ‘lid’.
- Aaaand fold it down to close the pocket.
- Repeat until you’ve used up all your quarters (or until you’ve run out of filling) and place the pockets on a baking sheet, ready for the oven!
Did I promise too much when I said this recipe is super simple? I think not! It’s simply the perfect little hack to create something oh-so-sweet and I hope you enjoy this recipe just as much as I did.
