4. Before baking, remove the plastic wrap. Using a knife, cut little slits on the top of the pastry-wrapped loaf. Brush the loaf with the vegan egg wash.
5. Bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden and crispy.
* Puff pastry is traditionally made with butter and eggs. However, many store-bought puff pastries are made without dairy or eggs because it makes them more shelf-stable, and vegan! To be on the safe side, please make sure to check the ingredients list before choosing your brand of puff pastry.
