Does the thought of Christmas food conjure up childhood memories of a roast with all the trimmings? There are lots of options for festive food that doesn’t contain animals’ flesh, milk, or eggs. Here are our favourites:
Aldi Earth Grown Vegan No Turkey Roast
Aldi has put the cruelty-free goods on shelves just in time for Christmas! This vegan centrepiece has a cranberry, apricot, and pumpkin seed stuffing wrapped in a soya and tofu coating with barbecue glaze. At $6.99 for 350 grams, you can’t go wrong!
Vegie Delights Vegie Roast
Popular Aussie brand Vegie Delights doesn’t disappoint with its Vegie Roast. Easy to prepare, inexpensive ($9.00 for 480 grams), and easy to find (it’s available at both Woolworths and Coles), this is one to grab not only at Christmastime. Enjoy a vegan Sunday roast every week! Find out more here.
Plantitude Gloriously Glazed Christmas Roast and Wreath
The roast from Woolworths’ Plantitude range has a hickory-smoked flavour and a sweet maple glaze and the Wreath is crisp, flaky pastry with oat and pecan-based filling. Both are $16 and 500 grams.
Coles Nature’s Kitchen Christmas Roast and Ham Style Roast
There are two offerings from the Coles range this year! The Ham Style Roast comes with a maple glaze, and the Christmas Roast includes a sweet chutney. Why not try both? The Christmas Roast is $14 for 650 grams, and the Ham Style Roast is $17 for 550 grams.
Field Roast Celebration Roast
Field Roast offers the best in vegan sophistication, and its roast is no exception. The centrepiece has a rich sausage-style stuffing, butternut squash, mushrooms, and apples and is seasoned with a blend of rosemary, thyme, and sage. If the full 908 grams ($37.99) is too much for your celebratory needs, half roasts are also available ($17.99). You can pre-order it from the Vegan Grocery Store.
Suzy Spoon’s Festive Roast
This is the most decadent and in-demand Christmas roast you can get your mitts on. You’ll have to get in early to order one of its festive roasts – the deliciousness knows no bounds. The brand also offers gluten- and nut-free options! This roast is 1 kilo and costs $65.
