Here are some nice turkey-friendly alternatives.
Don’t give leftovers to pets, as they contain toxic ingredients (mushrooms, garlic, onion etc). For meat, don’t feed cooked bones to pets, and don’t give fatty leftovers to birds, it can harm feathers (insulation and waterproofing).
- Ultimate Christmas Tofurky Roast (Full of Plants) is one for the chefs. A festive roast filled with spinach, sauteed mushrooms and lentils, wrapped a tender tofu crust.
- Rudy’s Vegan Butcher has just launched a Christmas Dinner DIY Kit that includes a ‘seitan Turkey’ packed with soysage stuffing and all the sides. Based in Islington, the kit costs £55 for 4, but sold out in an hour when it launched. Seasonal only.
- Ultimate Vegan Christmas Roast Wellington (Avant Garde Vegan) is by talented Welsh chef Gaz Oakley. This is an ambitious wheat gluten roast flavoured with onion, leeks and peppers and spices, plus dried sage, rosemary and chestnuts, cider, miso paste and veggie stock.
- His Christmas Stuffed Squash is made with rice and balsamic vinegar, then topped with peppers, onions, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes and spinach.
