Let me start by saying that while I have categorised this as a recipe it is SO easy that does it even qualify as a recipe? I don’t know! Despite this, I’m going to share how you can make these dairy-free cheese and tomato pinwheels!

Dairy free cheese and tomato pinwheels - a look at the finished result!

Ingredients for cheese and tomato pinwheels:

Puff pastry (one sheet) – we use the Jusrol puff pastry as this is dairy free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans

100g tomato puree (or air fryer roasted tomatoes, dairy-free pesto or blended roasted red peppers)

200g dairy-free cheese (we use Violife grated)

Method for baby led weaning pinwheels:

Unroll your sheet of puff pastry.

If you’re using a block then you’ll want to roll it out as thin as possible basically, and make a rectangle shape.

Spread on your tomato puree, dairy-free pesto or blended roasted red peppers.

Spread the cheese over the top.

Add some herbs if you or your little one like them. I find basil and oregano work really well, and give these more of a pizza pinwheel flavour.

Roll up your puff pastry sheet.

Slice into 1/2 inch rounds.

Place on a baking sheet, lined with baking paper.

Bake at gas mark 6 (200C) for around 21 minutes. Check a few minutes before and remove once they are nicely browned.

Remove to a cooling rack or enjoy hot fresh from the oven!

I have a great, simple, cheap shortcrust pastry recipe that is great, however, I do feel that the flaky puff pastry works best!

Puff pastry rolls up best for pinwheels, and the flaky texture is absolutely delicious too!

My 4 year old daughter Daisy was a little unsure if she enjoyed these initially. I think the texture was a little bit strange for her. However, I have tried again and she enjoyed them and was more interested. Also, if I remove the dairy-free cheese and swap it out for more vegetables Daisy seems to love these even more.

These keep for at least 3 days in the fridge. These dairy-free cheese and tomato pinwheels are suitable for freezing once they are baked. They can then be re-heated, if you want to, in the oven for around 8-10 minutes. Don’t leave them too long or they WILL burn!
