Vegan Taco Pinwheels


Fun, flavorful and dunkable. Those are the qualities I look for in the perfect appetizer. Now add fluffy, spicy and a gooey center, and I’m hooked. These taco pinwheels hit the spot, but there are more reasons to love this spin off of my original pizza pinwheel recipe.

Includes simple, wholesome ingredients. While they are perfect for entertaining, they also pack in some more whole grain nutrients because we are using spelt flour. One Degree Organic’s Spelt Flour is an excellent source of fiber, plus other vitamins and minerals, and is also sprouted making it easier to digest and way more satisfying than average party treats. For more benefits on sprouted grains, you can find it in my cardamom coconut pancakes post.Easy to make. The dough comes together quickly. Just let it rise and sprinkle with your fillings and roll it up.

Fun to customize. The best part of these pinwheels is that they are easy to grab and dunk.You can pair with one sauce or multiple sauces for guests to dunk to their heart’s content


1 cup warm water
1 packet of yeast
2 tbsp organic sugar, divided
2 cups One Degree Organics Spelt Flour
1 cup all-purpose flour + extra flour for rolling out
1 tbsp cornstarch
½ tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup Vegan Taco Meat
½ cup Salsa
1 cup vegan cheese


In a microwave safe mug add water and 1 tablespoon of sugar then place in the
microwave for 15 seconds to warm up. Make sure to test the water with your finger to
make sure the water is not too hot.

Add your yeast to the water, mix and let stand for 5 minutes to activate. You should see
the yeast foam up.

To a bowl, add in your remaining dry dough ingredients and mix well, then add in your
yeast mixture and oil then give a good mix to form a dough. If the dough is too sticky,
sprinkle a little flour on top and knead it until a smooth dough forms. Grease your mixing
bowl and place the dough back in, cover with a clean cloth and place in a warm spot to
rise for 45 minutes.

Sprinkle a clean flat working surface with flour and lay your dough down. With a rolling
pin, flatten your dough to a rectangular shape about ¼ inch in thickness.

To the surface spread on your salsa, sprinkle with the vegan taco meat and then layer
on with cheese.

Starting from one end, start to tuck and roll your dough into a log shape similar to
making a cinnamon roll.

Using a sharp knife, cut the log into 16 even pieces. Place these pieces into 2, 9inch x
9inch greased baking dishes, making sure you give space in between for the dough to

Cover the baking dishes with a towel and allow to rise for 30 minutes while preheating
your oven to 375F.

Place the buns into the oven for 15-17 minutes until the tops are golden. Allow to slightly
cool before serving.
