*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.
