Golden Plate by Olivera
I wish I could take credit for these brilliant bundles of joy, but I first saw these on tiktok. Luckily, veganizing this recipe was easy, thanks to Trader Joe’s.

How to Make Cramosas
Bake or air fry the frozen samosas, following the package instructions. I bought the mini samosas from Trader Joes, so I only needed to pop mine into the air fryer for 6 minutes at 390º.
Shake the air fryer basket halfway through cooking (if you’re using your oven, shake your baking tray halfway through or flip them with tongs).
Open the tube of vegan crescent rolls. To know which brands of crescent rolls are vegan, check out the FAQ section below.
Roll a cooked samosa up in one of the triangles of crescent dough.
Place each rolled cramosa into the basket of the air fryer or onto a baking stone or baking sheet. I have a smallish air fryer, so I had to make these stuffed crescent rolls in my little air fryer in 2 batches. Even if you think they’ll fit in one batch, you don’t want them touching when you place them in the air fryer or on the baking sheet because they expand when they cook.
Bake or air fry the cramosas. I air fried mine at 330º for 6 minutes. If you’re baking them, follow the instructions on the crescent roll tube.
Serve the cramosas hot. If you don’t eat them all, you can reheat these stuffed croissants in the oven, toaster oven, or air fryer later.
Are pillsbury crescent rolls vegan?
Yes! The original regular Pillsbury crescent rolls are vegan by default. I can’t vouch for any of their specialty varieties though.
Which crescent rolls are vegan?
There are 4 brands of crescent rolls that I know are vegan. The two that are organic are made by Immaculate and Annie’s. However, if you don’t care about buying organic, the ones sold at Trader Joe’s and Pillsbury are both vegan as well.
Can you make cramosas with normal sized samosas?
Yes! You will need to buy more crescent rolls though, because you’re essentially making bigger pieces of croissant dough by joining the smaller triangles into a bigger triangle. I would buy 2 tubes of crescent rolls and join 3 triangles to wrap each full-size samosa. Also, if you’re using samosas that you got from an Indian restaurant, you don’t have to precook them before rolling them, so that should save you some time.
Are samosas vegan?
- I bought the frozen mini samosas from Trader Joe’s, and they are vegan.

If you make this recipe, I would love it if you’d snap a pic, post to instagram, and tag me @vegandollhouse. It seriously makes my day/week/month!
* I use mostly organic ingredients when I cook. I realize that not everyone has the disposable income to buy only organic ingredients. So, I only specify organic on the ingredients that matter: when buying the organic (or non-GMO) version is the only way to ensure that an item is vegan.
