7 Plant-Based Roasts for Your Holiday Table
If this is your first holiday season embarking on a plant-based diet -- it can be tough to know what to cook for hungry omnivores who show up expecting traditional dishes.
I mean, what on earth are you supposed to make when turkey, ham, and roast beef are off the menu?
The good news is, it's easier than ever to replace old school, meat-centric main dishes with plant-based alternatives.
There are TONS of recipes online if you're into DIY, but for those who prefer buying something they can pop into the oven, here are seven easy vegan roast options:
Gardein Holiday Roast Gardein is super easy to find -- almost every grocery chain carries the brand, and their holiday roast is big and hearty. It's stuffed with cranberry wild rice dressing and comes with savory gravy. Perfect for feeding a family!
Field Roast Hazelnut Cranberry Roast En Croute If you're aiming for something a little different, Field Roast offers a hazelnut-infused grain meat stuffed with Field Roast sausages, crystallized ginger, cranberries and apples, all wrapped up in a puff pastry. Fancy and guaranteed to impress even die-hard carnivores.
