*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 TBL Earth Balance (non-dairy butter)
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 TBL all-purpose flour
1.5 oz dry cooking sherry
1 Not-Beef bouillon cube by Edward & Sons (vegan), dissolved in 2 cups hot water
2 packages Tofurky roast beef style slices
McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning (opt for Low Sodium)
4 french rolls (sub style)

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt Earth Balance, then add shallots and saute for 2 minutes. Add flour, stirring to combine,  and cook for another minute. Whisk in sherry until reduced. Add in prepared not-beef broth slowly while whisking. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer while you prepare sandwiches.

Add broth to 4 ramekins for dipping, reserving some broth in the pan to dip meat slices. Place meat slices piled loosely on a cutting board. Lightly sprinkle with seasoning. Dip each slice in pan broth and layer on rolls. Serve with the ramekin of au jus dipping sauce.

Makes 4 sandwiches

Tip: I like to set up 4 ramekins of broth first before dipping seasoned meat slices in pan broth to avoid over-salty sandwiches.

1 lb dried penne pasta

8 oz package fresh mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
1 clove garlic, pressed through garlic press

1 cup Silk Soy Creamer

fresh ground pepper to taste
1/2 cup SoyaKaas grated parmesan (soy parmy) in can
1 cup Daiya mozzarella cheese (divide into two 1/2 cups)

In large pot, cook penne pasta until done to your liking. Reserve 1/2 cup of this pasta water once pasta is done cooking. While pasta is cooking, in a skillet heat olive oil on high heat and add mushrooms and garlic and saute for 4 minutes. Add in diced sausage and saute for another 4 minutes on high heat. The pasta should be done at this point. Drain pasta in colander, reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water.

Add 1/2 cup of pasta water, Silk creamer, salt and pepper to taste to the mushroom sausage mixture. Boil over high heat to thicken, stirring occasionally, about 4 minutes. Turn on broiler.

Place pasta in 3 quart baking dish and pour mushroom sausage mixture on top. Sprinkle SoyaKaas parmesan and 1/2 cup only of Daiya mozzarella evenly over the top. Turn pasta cheese mixture in baking dish to gently combine. Lightly salt top of mixture. Finish off by sprinkling remaining 1/2 cup of Daiya mozzarella on top. Broil until cheese is melted and slightly golden brown in some areas, about 5 minutes.

What vegan products should I use instead of egg, dairy, meat, and other animal products?

Use the conversion list on my substitutions page to learn what you can use in place of animal ingredients .

Remember a few tips:

*Read ingredients* to make sure you are buying vegan (meat and dairy free/egg free) products. Beware of animal bone char and animal derivatives. Also, some brands make both a vegan and non-vegan version, which could contain dairy, so read ingredients. Many products are gluten-free and may be labeled this way on the packaging, but read ingredients. Always avoid HFCS (high fructose corn syrup). FYI, the corn industry is trying to change this name, which would take some time if it gets approved. It’s their way to trick consumers.

 *Add Flaxseed* (finely ground) to salads, soups, pastas, even ice cream (soy or rice based, of course). My favorite dessert is Purely Decadent Vanilla Ice Cream with a teaspoon of Flaxseed and a teaspoon of salted sunflower seeds. Yum! Flaxseed is rich in Omega-3, 6 and 9 Fatty Acids and is a great source of Fiber. It also mixes great in shakes and smoothies. You can always use flax oil, but do not heat the oil as it gets a bitter taste. Instead, add to already prepared heated foods.

You can buy your vegan products at some chain grocery stores, or try Whole Foods for more specialty items, Trader Joes, or any other health food store. Always ask your store to carry a product. They will special order it for you. I do this every so often at Whole Foods.
