Christmas vegan feast!

Vegan turkey roulade with wild rice stuffing

I am a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas dinner. It just wouldn’t seem right without turkey, stuffing and gravy, along with generous portions of veg like potatoes, parsnips, leeks and Brussels sprouts.

But Christmas should be about spreading goodwill to ALL creatures, not just those of the homo sapiens variety, so of course in the Thrifty household, the turkey is faux, the gravy contains not a drop of animal fat, and no butter adorns the veg.

This year I decided to make a vegan turkey roulade with wild rice stuffing. It turned out absolutely delicious, and I wouldn’t hesitate to make it again, or to serve it to company.

Side dishes were potato and parsnip rosti (I have absolutely no luck making rosti into cakes, but it was yummy nonetheless), roasted sprouts and braised leeks. And, of course, gravy.

Recipes will follow soon, but I hope you enjoy the photos in the meantime.

Peace and joy to all creatures.
