Seven amazing vegan turkey alternatives to enjoy this Christmas

Posted on the 17th November 2017

Gone are the days of picking at side dishes and dry nut roast! Try these amazing plant-based mains this Christmas.

1) Tofurky Vegetarian Roast

This American import has taken the UK vegan market by storm. It is a faux-turkey roast with a stuffing centre and comes with a delicious herb gravy. It is available in Holland and Barrett and independent health food shops.

5) Thyme & White Bean Pot Pies by Minimalist Baker

Minimalist Baker is my go-to website for recipes, not only are they amazingly delicious, but all recipes consist of 10 ingredients or less. These pies are absolutely amazing. The perfect comfort food for those cold winter days.
