Thanks  Chelsea, for another delicious recipe.  This was fast and easy and also very filling.  I added all the ingredients except the tuna and then scooped some mix out and mixed with a bit more cheese and also some cooked brocolli and carrot chunks for my vegetarian son, then added tuna to the rest.  Will make again often.

I also have vegetarian in the family and attempt for us to enjoy the same base recipe as often as possible,hadn't thought to do it with this though. We did enjoy this recipe so will do it again like you have. Thanks for sharing

WOW!  Yum!  Loved it!  Will make it again definitely!!!!!  In Germany, our pastry comes in rolls, 30cm x 50cm (approx, I had no ruler!!!)  So I used to packets and made a giant one.  Ed and I had seconds and there is plenty for lunch tomorrow.  Served with a simple summer salad it was delicious! Thank you so much for such a wonderful conversion!

One of the draw backs of being vegetarian on this forum is that, if you are like me, you see a recipe featuring meat or fish and you tend to pass it over as being 'unsuitable'.  I have always been aware that by doing this there is a chance that I may be missing out on lots of interesting recipes so, for some unknown reason, I just decided to browse this recipe this morning out of curiosity as it has been on the forum so much recently and there it was - a great recipe adaptation for a vegetarian version.

I have learned my lesson and am now going to start checking out every recipe - just in case!  Thanks everyone for your postings and suggestions.

Am glad you enjoyed them Lee. :)

Great work with making and sharing the vegetarian option Lellyj. Perhaps I should post them as vegetarian strudels (minus the tuna) in the vegetarian section for others to find? Would they also work with tofu replacing the tuna?

Hi Chelsea, I am sure this would work with tofu, but do you think that it would be necessary?  I think there's probably enough food combination in there to cover all the food groups, especially if you added a side salad to go with it, or you could even chop up some nuts and add them for a bit of crunchiness.

I put one of these in the freezer when I made them and tonight we had it for tea - it had been precooked and it reheated beautifully.  Great standby for a quick meal.

I agree with the tofu thing--I think with the cream cheese, pastry and veg, it is already a reasonable meal option and as a vegetarian who eats meat (this is what my husband and I call ourselves--we are happy to eat vegetarian most of the time, but still eat meat!) I find tofu pretty bland.  Next time I make this I'm going to add portabello mushrooms to the mix for the vegetarian option, and this would also taste good with tuna!

Chelsea I was thinking about doing a thread on how to convert the same meal to cater vegetarian AND meat lover as it's something I have to do regularly.  Number 3 child seems desperate to resist the vegetarian trend in our family and as he is grown about a foot in one year (truly!) I am keen to see he continues to eat meat from a nutritioun point of view--he's only 13.  For example I cook quirky Jo's "fried rice" or as we call it "unfried rice" and I add tofu to some and bacon and or chicken to some, there's lots of ways to adapt the same meal. Maybe this almost deserves a "child board", since both Bedlam and Cuidleh often consider how to adapt meat meals to vegetarian?? What do you think?

My family loved this thanks Chelsea.  I took a frozen one out of the freezer for dinner last night and it reheated beautifully - I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical. In fact my husband actually raved how good it was! Will definitely be on our menu again and one that I can make and keep in the freezer for those nights we need a quick yummy meal.
