What’s included in this Vegan Christmas Dinner Traybake?
STUFFING – this is my favourite Roasted Vegan Stuffing Balls. No breadcrumbs, just lots of roasted vegetables, my favourite sizzled herbs in olive oil and some flax and psyllium to bind.
CRUSHED SPROUTS – move over crushed potatoes, there’s a new kid on the block this Christmas and they’re about to get your tastebuds dancing! Dressed to impress in a simple lemon, olive oil and dijon dressing.
ROASTED VEGGIES – all the classics – carrots, parsnips and pumpkin… and some chestnuts, because it simply wouldn’t be Christmas without them am I ight guys?
VEGAN RED WINE GRAVY – be ready to drink this stuff! Made with only veggies, red wine, tomato puree and a little balsamic. It’s so tasty. No need to add thickeners or gums. Simply simmer this vegan gravy down for longer and it’ll thicken up a dream. Double win!
CRISPY BAKED TOFU – to add some vegan protein. It’s clean and my favourite way to add protein for a main meal. Baking in the oven means the tofu dries out and goes crispy without the need to add a cornstarch or flour like you would to fry. You can bake it without any oil if you like it like that (I do) or add some herbs and olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Feel free to use a smoked or marinated tofu too if you prefer.
I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I did. Got any leftovers? Smash it all up together and fry it up in a pan the next day for vegan bubble and squeak! I’m hungry just thinking about it!
