Easy Peach-Blueberry Turnovers

Planning a special treat for Father's Day? Try these quick and easy turnovers created by blogger, Vegan Dad. He includes a recipe for puff pastry which he then fills with savory or sweet surprises (you can save time using Pepperidge Farm puff pastry or phyllo dough). Vegan Dad says, “I like wrapping veggies in the pastry for some kind of en croute creation, but I always save some dough to make some turnovers...Also, after making puff pastry I am in no mood to mess around with complicated filling.” Have a Happy Fathers Day celebration!


puff pastry (recipe here or buy puff pastry or phyllo dough)
peach jam
frozen blueberries
soy milk (for brushing


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. How much puff pastry you need depends on how many turnovers you want to make. 1/2 recipe of the puff pastry will make 8 turnovers. If you are making 8, roll the chilled dough into a 9x18 inch rectangle. If you are making 4, make a 9x9 inch square. Cut in half lengthwise, then crosswise to make 8 squares (or four).
  3. Spoon a generous tablespoon of peach jam slightly off center in each square; top with a few blueberries; fold over to make a triangle, then seal edges with a fork; place on the prepared sheet, cover, and refrigerate for 30 mins.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees; when the turnovers are chilled, brush them with soy milk and sprinkle sugar over top (regular or large grain); poke the tops with a fork a few times then bake for 20 mins; reduce heat to 350 degrees, rotate the pan, and bake for an additional 15 mins, or until golden and nicely puffed up.
  5. Let cool for 15 mins in the pan, then serve.

Plant-Based Benefits

A new study entitled "Is a vegetarian diet adequate?", published in the Medical Journal of Australia, puts to rest any doubts about a plant-based diet. Results reveal that vegetarians were getting adequate amounts of protein, iron, and zinc, and were less likely to suffer from some of the nation’s top killers such as heart disease, colon cancer, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. Vegetarians participating in the study showed no signs of omega-3 deficiency.

The study also found that vegetarian diets are perfectly healthful for pregnant women and children. There were no significant health differences between babies born to vegetarian and meat-eating mothers, and no noticeable differences in growth between vegetarian and meat-eating children.

The study’s lead author, Dr. Rosemary Stanton, noted: “...eating more plant-based meals is a good recipe for our own health and that of the planet.”

The Vegan Dad

Mike, AKA "The Vegan Dad" (not to be confused with Vegan Dad highlighted in the recipe spot above) is a father of two. He became a vegan, adopting a plant-based diet to fight heart disease, which he thought was genetic trait passed to him by his family. For years he suffered with high cholesterol and high blood pressure, thanks to the Standard American Diet (SAD). He invites one and all to join him on his Vegan "Revoluciòn" as he tries to understand the good/bad of food and diet.

Hey says, “I’m going to be 40 this year and have made a switch to a plant-based diet for health reasons. Can I stop this heart disease through my diet? We will find out.”
