You know me and my hearty holiday vegan roasts, I simply love them. Whether they're store-bought, made with seitan, our lentil and mushroom holiday roasts, nut roasts, mushroom roasts, etc, I love feeling that there's a traditional hearty main entrée in the center of the table. Since most of our friends and family who come over for Thanksgiving and Christmas aren't vegan, I always love to serve something that will seem familiar. It's why when non-vegans come over and they see this giant platter of perfectly sliced seitan roast with mushroom gravy slathered all over it they get VERY excited! Now we even have ready made roasts from brands like Tofurky, Gardein and Field Roast which even come with their own gravy and all you have to do is heat them up, cook up some sides and you have a perfect holiday meal.
What if however, this year you wanted to make something different. What if, you live in an area where these products aren't as readily available and you want to create something hearty, using simple staples you can find at the grocery store? What if you don't have the time this year to make big holiday roast from scratch? What if you simply want to mix things up and surprise your guests with something different this year? Today's episode and post is all about those hearty vegan main dishes you can make when you want to skip the classic vegan roast.Read More
