Top tip: you could make this vegan pastry ahead and freeze it. Flatten into a disc rather than a ball before double wrapping in food wrap. It will keep in the freezer for up to three months.

Vegan pastry recipe


  • 225g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 125g dairy-free margarine
  • 2 tbsp dairy-free milk alternative (we used oat)


  • STEP 1

    Sift the flour into a large bowl and add a pinch of salt. Dot the margarine in the flour, in 1 tsp amounts, then use your hands to work into the flour until you have a crumb-like texture. Stir in the dairy-free milk, 1 tbsp at a time, using a butter knife, until it forms a dough.

  • STEP 2

    Tip out the dough onto a lightly floured worksurface and bring together into a smooth ball. Cover with food wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 30 mins or until ready to roll out and bake in sweet and savoury pies and tarts.
