Awesome Sausage Rolls

1 can of Sanitarium Nutmeat
1 onion, diced
2 -3 tablespoons of tomato paste
1-2 tablespoons gravy powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons oil
1/4 cup fine breadcrumbs
1 pack of puff pastry (neway brand are vegan. I think homebrand is too actually)

Preheat oven to 200C and prepare a baking tray with baking paper.
Have the pastry thaw out on the bench while you prepare the following..
Heat the oil in a large pan and gently fry the onions until they become clear.
Add in the can of nutmeat and stir it around on low-medium until it starts to heat up.
When you notice it getting a tad dry, add in the tomato paste, gravy powder (teaspoon by teaspoon) sugar and salt. You can add in more or less of whatever, of course depending on your taste preferences
Slowly add in the breadcrumbs teaspoon by teaspoon, mixing it all together. You most likely won't need all of it, it's there to add more 'texture' and absorb excess moisture.

Cut pastry sheets in half.
Once it's to your taste preferences, spoon the mix from the pan to near the edge of the pastry sheet and roll the pastry together so it looks like a sausage roll.
Brush the sides with water or soy milk to make them stick together.
Brush the tops lightly with soy milk and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.
Place the sausage rolls on the oven trays in the middle rack for about 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
