Holiday Vegan Alternatives

Nota Bene: This is a guest post from our friends at Effing Vegan. While neither Jason nor I subscribe to a vegan lifestyle, we believe there are many paths to a healthy life, and veganism is certainly one of them. Incorporating more vegetables and plant-based foods is an excellent choice for any person looking to be healthier – whether you consume animal products or not. 

The holiday season is here and with that comes the challenges for our vegetarians and vegan friends. The family is in town, the tables are packed full of tasty options, and you may find yourself challenged with options that fit into your vegan or vegetarian lifestyle. Fear not, fellow vegheads. Check out these awesome vegan Thanksgiving alternatives.

Field Roast – Celebration Roast

The sausage-style stuffing made from Field Roast grain meats, butternut squash, mushrooms, and granny smith apples is seasoned with a blend of rosemary, sage, and thyme and caged in a delicious grain meat that is seasoned with garlic, sage, and lemon juices.

 

What makes this awesome: Slice it up and pair it with steamed veggies and potatoes. Perfect for sandwiches if there is even any left!

Field Roast – Hazelnut Cranberry Roast En Croute

Another brilliant creation from Field Roast. The Hazelnut Cranberry Roast En Croute is the perfect staple for any holiday meal. The rich, hazelnut-infused grain meats are stuffed with Field Roast’s savory sausages, crystallized ginger, apples, and cranberries.

What makes this awesome: The combination is stuffed in a delicious puff pastry.

Tofurky – Feast

For all of the Tofurky fans out there, this bird-free feast will surely satisfy your cravings this holiday season. Each roast is made with organic non-GMO soybeans with wild rice and wheat bread crumb stuffing. Each feast is 100% vegan, easy to cook, and serves six. Paired with savory gravy and you have a delicious centerpiece for your holiday feast.

 

What makes this awesome: Tofurky Feast comes with Jurky Wishstix, Vegan Fudge Brownies, and a Tofurky Day car and coupons.

Gardein – Holiday Roast

Another perfect centerpiece for your holiday feast. The Gardein Holiday Roast is a delicious combination of cranberry wild rice stuffing with homestyle gravy. The package says it can feed up to eight people, but we recommend you buy in case your stomach is begging you for more.

 

What makes this awesome: This is a certified vegan product, contains no GMOs, and packs a near 1:1 ratio for protein and carbohydrates so you won’t feel guilty if you splurge.
