The only vegan puff pastry I keep hearing about is the Pepperidge Farms, but I have no idea if you can get it in Canada. Do any Canadians know where it is sold? Or if there any other vegan brands? As much as I'd like to, I don't have enough time to make my own.

I just bought some frozen vegan puff pastry on the weekend in the frozen foods sections (where the pie crusts and stuff are) at the Metro (formerly Dominion) supermarket at the Shops at Don Mills. (I don't think you're near Toronto, but if you have Metros where you are, maybe you'll find it). Anyway, it was not Pepperidge Farm brand, it was...a brand I don't remember but no fancy packaging at all...in like a plastic wrap with a white label, not a big name company, whatever it was. Unfortunately, I've thrown away the packaging so I don't know who made it. It was a good pastry, I thought, really nice and flaky. I was really pleased with how the appetizers I made with it came out and I'd definitely buy it again. Good luck finding something!

I've found some in Safeway that was vegan, had to read the ingredinets to be sure, and I can't remember the name at this second. It may even have been store brand but I can't confirm.

I think the Tenderflakes stuff is vegan but it only come in these tiny squares; I need something to make the seitan en croute. Any thoughts?

Could you stick the squares together with a little water and then once rolled up hide the join with some small shapes cut out from more puff pastry and stuck on with water??? If you even wanted to hide the join. Bit of a pain in the arse but it would work.

Yeah, I was actually at the grocery store and made a point of stopping at the puff pastry to have a looksee. Well, I went to a different grocery store this time, so I didn't see the original puff pastry I bought last week, but I did buy some Tenderflake, which according to the ingredient list, looks vegan to me. I did manage to get the non-squared kind, it's a flat sheet (or at least seems to be, according to the box). But just to confirm at least that it's vegan.

QueenV's prep of the pre-scored puff pastry sounds good. I don't know what you're going to do with it, but I rolled mine out as a whole block of dough and the process of just rolling it out would probably obliterate any pre-scored square marks in the pastry anyway.

If you have a Great Canadian Superstore near you, that's where I found the Tenderflake on sale today!

I should add that I saw you're making seitan en croute, but just not sure what that involves in terms of preparation process.

I think I just need to roll it out into two sheets and cut one of the sheets into strips.
I'll check a different store, the last place I checked (safeway) only had the squares but I'll give Superstore a shot. Thanks guys.

Bumping this super old thread as the Tenderflake puff pastry that I've been buying all this time doesn't seem to be vegan anymore. I just picked up a package and now there's D3 listed in the ingredients. Anyone know if there are any other vegan or accidentally vegan brands out there that you can get in Canada?

I was pissed, and have no solution. Everything in phyllo from now on, I guess.

Vitamin d3. It is derived from wool. D2, on the other hand, is plant based.
