*featured above is stuffed tofu roast, stuffing, mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy, roasted carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes and onions, and cranberry-apple potato dumpling

Roast:
1 Tofurky Roast (3lb box comes with sides of mushroom gravy & dumplings)
1 brown onion, peeled and quartered
1 shallot, peeled and quartered
2 cloves garlic, peeled and cut in half
fresh sage and rosemary (3 full sprigs of each)
carrots, sweet potato and a few small russet potatoes, rinsed and cut
1/4 cup olive oil

6 medium to large Russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
6 TBL Earth Balance, softened
2 cloves garlic, pressed through garlic press
1/4 cup Silk Creamer Original

Place roast in roasting pan. Place onion, shallot, garlic, sage, rosemary and vegetables around roast and drizzle olive oil over roast. Toss vegetables to coat with olive oil.  Half way through, baste and toss vegetable and turn roast to the other side. 

Bake 350 degrees F for 1 hour and 15 minutes covered, then baste final time and roast 10 minutes more, uncovered.

While roast is in the oven, you have time to make the side dishes. Make mashed potatoes and heat mushroom gravy (included with roast) and make the cranberry-apple potato dumplings (included with roast) according to instructions. Boil potatoes until soft. Drain potatoes and mash (use mixer) with earth balance, garlic and soy milk. Set aside.

If you plan on making your own stuffing, saute celery and onion, add in no chicken broth (vegan) and bring to boil, then toss in bread cubed stuffing and toss. This roast already has a bread and rice stuffing in the center.

*Tip: if you plan on making this faux turkey in the off-season, check with your local Whole Foods to see if the Tofurky Roast is in stock. It comes in several sizes. I made this in July and my local store had it available but said not all stores may stock this roast throughout the year.

2 medium acorn squashes, halved and seeded
2 tsp olive oil, plus 1 TBL
12 oz package of frozen soy crumbles
ground cinnamon
ground nutmeg
2 tsp coarse salt
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
4 cloves of garlic, pressed through a garlic press
3/4 cup bulgur wheat (I like Bob’s Red Mill)
2 cups water
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup fresh italian (flat-leaf) parsley, chopped
2 TBL toasted pine nuts

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place squashes, cut side down, in a casserole dish or on a cookie sheet. Bake until soft, about 40 minutes.

Heat 2 tsp of olive oil in a large pan over high heat. Add in frozen soy crumbles, a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg, and 1 tsp of salt. Stir and cook for a few minutes until heated. Transfer to a dish and set aside.

Add 1 TBL of olive oil to the same pan over medium to high heat, and add in onion. Cook until slightly translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and stir. Add remaining teaspoon of salt and the bulgur and stir to combine. Add in water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low-medium, cover, and let cook for 15 minutes. Once done, remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork, then add in soy crumble mixture, raisins, parsley, and pine nuts and stir to combine.

Scrape out baked squashes, leaving 1/4-inch-thick bowls, and fold scooped squash into the bulgur soy crumble mixture and mix well. Place squash bowls on pan and fill each with an even amount of the mixture. Bake 14 minutes until warmed and tops are slightly browned.

2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 lb yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 stick (4 oz) non-diary butter (Earth Balance), plus 2 TBL (1 oz) melted
2 1/2 TBL fresh sage, chopped
1 1/2 cups Silk Original Creamer
coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1 cup breadcrumbs (about 3 slices of white bread, crusts removed)

Place sweet potatoes and potatoes in a large pan, cover with water, and season with salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and place in a bowl. Use a ricer to mash or a hand mixer works well, too!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Melt 1 stick of butter replacement (Earth Balance) in a small saucepan over medium heat, swirling, until slightly golden, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add 2 TBL of sage. Stir butter mixture and silk soy into potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a medium casserole dish. (this portion can be made 2 days ahead of time and refrigerated).

Combine breadcrumbs with 2 TBL of melted butter replacement (Earth Balance), and remaining 1/2 TBL sage. Season with salt and pepper and toss to combine.

Top potato mixture with breadcrumbs. Bake, uncovered, until bubbling around the edges and the breadcrumbs are golden brown, 35-40 minutes.

Serves 8

Tip: if browning too quickly, tent with foil.

Tip: this dish can be made up to 2 days ahead of time. Save the breadcrumb mixture and put on just before baking. If making ahead and keeping refrigerated, you will need to bake an additional 10-15 minutes longer.

1 TBL vegetable oil (I like olive oil)
1 cup packed fresh spinach leaves
1 red bell pepper diced
1/2 brown onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, pressed through garlic press
1 lb firm tofu, rinsed, pressed between paper towels, and crumbled
1 tsp turmeric or curry powder (I like Spice Islands with turmeric blend)
1/2 tsp garlic salt
2 green onions (scallions) or chives, minced

Heat oil in skillet. Add the bell pepper, onion, and garlic and saute a few minutes until softened and browned. Add in crumbled tofu, spinach, turmeric, and garlic salt and saute for 5 minutes. Add green onions and cook for 1 minute longer. Serves 2-4 depending on how large a breakfast you eat. I like to garnish mine with a small side of freshly prepared guacamole, a sprinkle of soy mozzarella by Daiya, and one slice of toast.

Sub out any ingredient you do not like and sub in things you do. Try:
Diced mushrooms or Lightlife breakfast veggie sausage links (dice a few and add to pan with the bell pepper).
