Sambusa is common street food and a very popular snack in Ethiopia where it would be served fresh off the fryer. While they can have many different fillings, this vegetarian version with lentils is my favorite. It’s savory and flavorful and wonderfully satisfying!

Yes, we take the shortcut here, and trust me, you will not regret it! The filling has so much flavor and makes for an amazing snack or side!

Is Puff Pastry Vegan?

Puff Pastry — flaky, buttery goodness and obviously not always vegan. In fact, puff pastry is traditionally made with butter and usually brushed with egg before baking.

However, many store-bought puff pastries are made without dairy or egg because it makes them more shelf-stable so check your grocery stores for those accidentally vegan puff pastry.

To make Sambusas, use spring roll wrappers dough. Shape into cones, fill, Fold and seal using a mix of flour and water and bake at 400 deg F until golden.
