Gouda and Caramelised Onion Swirl Buns


For the Caramelised Onions:

  • 2 red onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper

For the Buns

Tomato Veganaise Relish



  1. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan and add the sliced red onion. Fry for 5 minutes until softening then add the balsamic vinegar, syrup, and some salt and pepper. Fry for 10 minutes, stirring often until sticky.
  2. Preheat the oven to 160Fan/180*C and grease an oven-proof dish.
  3. Add the flour to a mixing bowl and pour in the milk and 20g melted vegan butter/margarine with some salt. Stir together to a dough and transfer to a lightly floured work surface. Knead for 1 minute.
  4. Roll into an oblong shape (about 36x20cm and ½ cm thick). Brush over most of the other 20g vegan butter/margarine all over the dough. Layer on the Smoked Gouda slices so they do not overlap. Then top with the onions and mixed herbs.
  5. Using the long edge, carefully roll up the dough into a long tube. Slice into 7-8 pieces roughly 4cm wide. Transfer to the greased dish, so they touch and brush with the remaining melted butter/margarine. Bake for 20-25 minutes until fluffy and golden.
  6. Make the Tomato Veganaise Relish by stirring together all the ingredients in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Serve on top of the Gouda and Caramelised Onion Swirl Buns. Best eaten the same day.
