Vegan Holiday Roasts Info!

Vegan faux turkeys are becoming numerous! Here's a description of each we carry to help you decide.

Tofurky Roast-The time-tested option

Tofurky has been around since 1995, for good reason! Prepared and sliced correctly; it looks and tastes like traditional Thanksgiving. A savory blend of wheat and tofu, the Roast is filled with a flavorful wild rice and bread crumb stuffing. This year, we have stocked the roast + gravy combo box for your convenience!

Tips for the best tasting Tofurky:
Thaw in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. This makes for a more tender Tofurky than only thawing 24 hours or baking from frozen.
Follow the directions on the box for basting with oil and soy sauce, but use poultry seasoning instead of just ground sage.
Finally, carve VERY THIN slices at an angle with a serrated knife and the look and texture is just like turkey! You might fool someone.
If you're feeling adventurous, you might look up recipes for marinating or try it in a slow cooker with broth and vegetables.
Tofurky Ham Roast
A few years ago, Tofurky gave us another delicious holiday option in the Ham Roast with Amber Ale Glaze.
This plant-based "ham" has a tender, smoky flavor, complimented by a sweet, tangy glaze. Roast, slice and serve with your favorite sides. Keep this one in mind for Christmas!

Gardein Holiday Roast
Fans of Gardein will be anxious to try this! It features a cranberry-wild rice stuffing and comes with the most delicious heat-and-serve gravy. Similar texture to any of the Gardein "poultry" products. Bakes from frozen so you don't have to remember to thaw it. Bake, slice, enjoy!

Field Roast Celebration Roast (1 pound size)

Field Roast Grain Meats are very well seasoned, a bit dense and very filling. A little goes a long way! This small roast may not be as impressive on a serving platter but sure to please your taste buds. It is already seasoned, just heat and eat! You can also eat it cold and slice for sandwiches. It's a great option if you're only feeding a couple veggie folks or taking it for just yourself to someone else's gathering. Grab yourself a packet of Golden Gravy and commandeer the microwave for a bit to set yourself up with a great meal. This is a wheat gluten based product rather than soy so if you have soy sensitivities, this or the other 2 Field Roast options below are your best bet.

Field Roast Celebration Roast (2 pound size) with Traditional Bread Stuffing & Mushroom Gravy
New addition to the holiday roast offerings from Field Roast! Another very easy yet delicious option. Porcini Mushroom Gravy comes with it, just heat and serve!

Field Roast Hazelnut Cranberry Roast En Croute
Another by Field Roast, this is truly awe-inspiring...even just to look at! It will make an magnificent centerpiece at your table The roast is surrounded in rich and flaky puff pastry. The next layer is very similar in taste to Field Roast Apple Sage Sausages. The middle is a faux sausage cranberry stuffing with diced crystallized ginger which adds to the complexity of flavors. But don't worry if you're not a ginger fan, it's easy to spot and pick out. The most decadent faux we've ever tasted. Thaw and bake until pastry is slightly brown and flaky.

Whichever one you choose, we hope you have a wonderful holiday surrounded by the people you love!
