Vegan MoFo Post 3: I'm a runzatic! (NOT)

My life was so grey. I was suffering from headache all the time. I was so tired and lazy. But then someone handed me some information about living without meat and murder and now my life has changed. My name is Justus and I am not a runzatic.

Mein Leben war so trostlos. Ich hatte dauernd Kopfschmerzen und war wirklich müde und faul. Aber dann hat mir jemand ein Paar Imformationen darüber gegeben wie man ohne Fleisch und Tod leben kann und nun hat sich mein Leben geändert. Mein Name ist Justus und ich bin kein Runzatic.

A few months ago I red this post about vegan runzas and tried to make my own version. I changed quiet a lot and made I new recipe on my own but the inspiration came from the ppk blog.

Vegan Runzas

Ingredients (makes 6):


250 g of flour

1/3 cup of sugar

1/3 cup of canola oil

1 cube of fresh yeast

1 tbs of salt

125 ml of soy milk, plus some extra soymilk for brushing

2 tbs of organ no-egg egg replacer


1 cup of TVP-flakes, reconstituted with boiling water ( I also added some smoked tofu and leftover weißwurst)

1 tbs of vegemite

2 onions, rouhgly chopped

1/2 smal head of nappa cabbage, roughly chopped

3-4 tbs of tomato ketchup

2 tsp of liquid smoke

canola oil for frying

salt and pepper for seasoning

1. Mix the flour with the crumbled yeast and rub it in. Add the remaining dry ingreidnets and stir well. Now add the wet irgedients and mix and knead until you have a nix elastic dough. Set aside for 30-45 minutes.

2. Heat a non-stick pan and fry the TVP with some oil intil it gets some niced goldenbrown marks. Add the onions and the cabbage and fry until the vegetables are done. Mix the vegemite wit 1/3 cup of boilg water and add it. Fry until most of the water has evaporated.

3. Add the liquid somke and the ketchup and season with salt and pepper.

4. Divide the dough into six parts and roll them out to a rectangular shape (about 0,5 to 1,0 cm thick). Place a good portion of filling on top. Wrap the long sides of the rectrangle together and then press the short sides togther.

5. Place on a baking sheed lined with baking paper and brush with soymilk.

6. Bake at 180°C for about half an hour until they have the colour you see at the picture. Brush with soymilk 2-3 times during baking and one time after baking.
