All of us Confetti's love vegan food and two of us are committed to a fully vegan lifestyle. So this blogmas we thought it would be perfect to share with you a 'Vegan Christmas Dinner'. Vegan diets are often underestimated but where here to let you can still have all the glory of a Christmas dinner just without the meat or dairy! The crispy roast potatoes and gravy are all within range! Just read our recipe below to find out how to get the perfect 'Vegan Christmas Dinner'.
The star of the show will be will be the Tofurky Vegan Roast and gravy. This mighty box holds the Tofurky roast joint which will be your meat replacement and as if it could be any better, it also happens to be stuffed with stuffing! Then to top it all off we have a third vegan alternative with the 'herb gravy'. The roast joint takes under an hour and thirty minutes which can also be put in with all your veggies to get a real authentic roast dinner!
The next vegan alternative is making crispy roast potatoes. Potatoes, of course, are vegan, however at Christmas, a lot of people tend to use beef dripping of fat to cook their potatoes in, but all you will need is potatoes, flour, a pinch of salt and sunflower oil (or any vegan oil such as coconut). You simply boil the potatoes until soft, drain them, pour them into a roasting tin and shake them around to rough them up a bit, and then add the other ingredients and cook them for around an hour until they are the perfect combination of soft and crispy.
The final step, your roast veg. Luckily all veg is vegan so just pick your favorite ones, (such as broccoli, carrots, parsnips, asparagus etc) peel, chop and pour into a roasting tin base them with a drizzle of oil and roast for 30-40 minutes. All the veg can be cooked separately or with the potatoes depending on how you like it.
There you have the basics to a Vegan Christmas dinner. It will be just as fulfilling as any normal roast and will be a great way to show your friends and family how good vegan dinners can be!
(All food requires different measurements depending on how many your cooking for but generally all the food can be cooked on 180 to 200 degrees for a fan assisted oven)
