Due to the nature of puff pastry, please follow these guidelines: Store in the freezer. Thaw in the refrigerator for 8-12 hours before use.Before starting, preheat the oven to 425˚F.Wash and dry all produce. Unroll puff pastry, discarding the wax paper, then place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.Cut pastry in half to create 2 rectangles (use 2 parchment-lined baking sheets and create 4 rectangles for 4 ppl).Arrange puff pastry rectangles at least 2 inches apart.Place in fridge until ready to assemble hand pies.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.Meanwhile, peel, then finely chop shallot.When the pan is hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then shallots and Beyond Meat®. Break up patties into bite-sized pieces with a spatula. Cook, stirring often, until slightly crispy, 5-6 min.**Add BBQ sauce and soy sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, 1 min.Remove from heat.
Divide Beyond Meat® mixture over half of each pastry rectangle. Working with one pastry rectangle at a time, fold the side of pastry without Beyond Meat® over filling. Using your fingers, firmly pinch the border closed. (TIP: You can also use a fork and press around the edges of the pastry to seal shut.) Using a knife, make 2-3 small slits in the top of each pastry. Sprinkle sesame seeds over top.Bake hand pies in the middle of the oven, until puff pastry is golden-brown and cooked through, 25-28 min. (NOTE: Bake in the top and middle of the oven for 4 ppl, rotating halfway through.)
Meanwhile, core, then cut apple into 1/4-inch slices.Add vinegar, 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil and 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) sugar to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then whisk to combine.Add apples to dressing, then toss to combine. Set aside.
When hand pies are almost done, add spinach to the bowl with apples and dressing (from step 4). Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine.
When hand pies are done, let stand for 5 min. Carefully slice each one into 2 triangles.Divide hand pies and salad between plates.Sprinkle salad topping mix over salad.
