Homemade Vegetarian Hot Pockets

What you need: 

1 can Pillsbury seamless dough sheet
1 cup Kale (washed and chopped roughly)
4 Artichoke Hearts (I bought canned artichoke, drained them of their water and chopped them)
1 tablespoon vegan butter (I like Earth Balance)
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 cup vegan creamer (I like coconut creamer)
1 cup shredded vegan cheddar cheese (I like Daiya)
Dash pepper
Dash garlic salt

What you do: 

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place a small saute pan on medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Add chopped artichokes and kale to the pan and saute for about 5-6 minutes, or until kale is wilted, sprinkle with a little garlic salt. Set aside.

2. In a small sauce pan on medium high heat, melt butter and add the flour, stir until completly combined. Pour in your creamer and whisk until thick, about 4 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of your shredded cheese, whisk until completely melted and combined. You should have a nice thick white sauce.

3. Roll out your dough sheet on too parchment paper - I had to re-roll mine due to the packaging ripping the dough. Evenly divide the dough into 4 equal rectangles. Add about 3 tablespoons of the white sauce to the middle of 2 rectangles (keep the filling in the middle away from the edges so it can seal well), add 2-3 tablespoons of your artichoke and kale mixture, top with some extra cheddar cheese.

4. Take your other rectangle half and do a water or vegan milk wash on the seams of the dough, cover your filling and sealing the sides by using a fork to crimp down the edges. Brush some water or vegan milk on top of the dough and sprinkle with garlic salt. Transfer the parchment paper with your pockets onto a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I disagree with the above comment on not including the white sauce i think that definitly adds more flavor and without it, it wouldnt make the dish how it really tastes. Carb? Thats what it is all about.

I would use white sauce or add extra cheese it makes the dish too heavy and overtakes the meal as a whole. If you add cheese i would go light since you dont want much of a carb overload for such a healthy dish.

I wouldnt add any white souce, it takes over the dish and very strong. Along with adding extra cheese it is way to heavy since there is so many ingrediants.

These were great.  Instead of using the store bought processed dough, I just made whole wheat pizza dough in the bread machine, which worked great.  I did freeze them after baking and cooling.  They turned out great.  My family seemed to like them too and they usually are not fans of the vegan cheese (which I am not either).  Thanks!

This is actually a really good appetizer and it can be also added to you regular diet plan. Pasta is really tasty and peoples favorite too. Add some delicious sauce and some herbs to it and it becomes luscious to the tongue. A good dish indeed thanks for the recipe
