Tips for serving the best vegetarian / vegan roast dinner
Most store-bought vegan roasts are made using a vegetarian meat substitute called ‘seitan’ which is made from vital wheat gluten. Other common ingredients in homemade vegan meatloaf include lentils and nuts due to their high protein content and texture.
There are plenty of brands selling meat-free roast substitute options to feed vegans/vegetarians at Christmas dinner available at the supermarkets, otherwise you can have a go at making a simple loaf like this to pair with other vegetables and sides (like the ones mentioned below.)
A veggie Sunday roast loaf like this pairs perfectly with popular vegetarian roast dinner sides such as stuffed portobello mushrooms, roast or mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables (brussel sprouts, carrots, pumpkin, cauliflower, onion etc.), green beans, mashed cauliflower, homemade vegan gravy or dairy free cheese sauce!
Even the carnivores approve of this holiday vegan roast loaf!

Not only is this simple vegan recipe soy free, nut free, gluten free and oil free, there are also no mushrooms or lentils so you’ll be sure to keep even the picky eaters happy!
