Holiday Feast…with Vegan Gravy!

I hope everyone had an amazing winter holiday!

This was the second Christmas and New Years since I went vegan, and just like last year, I didn’t even think twice about the traditional turkey dinners I had as a kid. For Christmas, I cooked up my own meatless version of a holiday dinner with veggies, stuffing, potatoes, rye bread, vegan ham, and some gravy made with a vegetable base.

The veggie gravy is especially becoming a huge favorite of mine! I just use the water reserved after steaming vegetables, then mix in a scoop of veggie soup stock with black pepper and a bit of starch, then heat it until it thickens.

For a great snack, I also served up these soy-based cocktail weiners made by Ten-In, and some pickled artichokes.

All in all, the meals this holiday season all went down really well, plus there was none of the greasy dishes to wash up. (…and I also discovered that brussels sprouts are actually really really good!)
