Another holiday, another year of explaining yourself, and your vegan diet, to any family member you haven’t seen since last year.
Another year of being the solo vegan during the Holidays.
And when you’re not busy picking the bacon off the mashed potatoes or trying to hunt down a salad dressing that isn’t buttermilk ranch, it can feel like you’re sitting all by yourself at one end of a looooong table. Everyone at the other end is passing the butter and carving the turkey, and they think you’re down there just eating a head of lettuce like an apple–alone.
What they don’t realize though is that you’re actually eating a smorgasbord of fresh, delicious, colorful dishes that, honestly, if you didn’t tell them were vegan, they would never know. In reality, you’re enjoying the holidays just as much as anyone else (minus the “why don’t you eat meat!?” questions).
You’re celebrating seasonal produce, like Sweet Potato Quinoa & Kale that has a deeper flavor and is more nutritious than any Caesar or garden salad. Plus, it doesn’t even need dressing because the flavors are so rich just the way they are. Instead, you have vibrant, Fresh Cranberry Sauce that’s the perfect amount of sweetness to balance out all the savory.
And your main course is a Hazelnut Cranberry Roast En Croute from Field Roast, the perfect Vegan comfort food. Rich, hazelnut-infused grain “meat” is stuffed with Field Roast’s vegetarian sausage, crystallized ginger, cranberries, and apples before being wrapped in a savory puff pastry. Top that with a rich, Organic Mushroom Gravy, and make sure there are Savory Smashed Sweet Potatoes on the side, and you too have a complete, satisfying Holiday feast.
Just don’t be surprised when your little brother starts asking if you’re going to finish that.
To really make everyone jealous, reserve your Vegan Holiday Dinner for one at your nearest Earth Fare. For $14.99, it includes all the foods listed above (and with just enough leftovers for the next day).
