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.

*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.

3 slices day old sandwich bread (cut off crusts and break bread into pieces)
1/2 cup dairy-free parmesan cheese (Galaxy Foods Vegan brand)
2 TBL flat leaf parsley, chopped finely
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 egg replacer (Bob’s Red Mill 1 TBL egg replacer whisked with 3 TBL water)
1 package Gardein Chick’n Scallopini (remove from freezer as you gather ingredients)
2 TBL olive oil
2 TBL fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup water
1 TBL Dijon mustard
3 TBL dairy-free butter (Earth Balance)

In a food processor, add bread, parmesan, parsley, salt, and pepper and pulse until fine crumbs. Place on a small plate.

Prepare egg replacer and pour onto another small plate. Dip each Gardein chicken piece in the prepared egg replacer so it is lightly covered, then cover with bread crumb mixture, pressing so crumbs adhere.

In a large skillet, heat 1 TBL olive oil and 1 TBL dairy-free butter (Earth Balance). Place 2 pieces of breaded Gardein in pan and cook about 3 minutes each side, pressing down gently with a spatula to brown all crumbs. Repeat with final batch being sure to re-coat pan.

In a small pan, add lemon juice and 1/4 cup water and cook for 1 minute over low heat until steaming. Add in Dijon and whisk. Turn off heat and add in 1 TBL dairy-free butter (Earth Balance) and whisk until melted and combined. Divide sauce into 4 small ramekins for dipping.

Plate each Gardein piece over fresh baby greens and serve with a side of the lemon-mustard sauce.

Tip: If you love sauce, then I recommend doubling the sauce ingredients.
