Vegan Turkey Roast Review

We bought and roasted the top three selling vegan holiday roasts and are giving our honest opinion. It was a hard job, but someone had to do it. LOL!

THE THREE TOP SELLING VEGAN HOLIDAY ROASTS
We get it, there are people who are not that into cooking, especially during the holidays. The idea of putting together a lentil loaf or a Wellington, can be too much, especially when there are several side dishes and desserts to make.

Well, we’re here to the rescue, because there are so many great vegan options for your holiday table, and we’ve broken down what we like best about the three best selling plant-based turkey holiday roasts, so you can choose the one that’s right for you, and take the stress of making the main course off of your plate. See what I just did. 😉

We made the oldie but goodie, Tofurky Plant-Based Roast & Wild Rice Stuffing, Field Roast’s Celebration Roast with Traditional Bread Stuffing, and Gardein’s Holiday Roast with Cranberry and Wild Rice Stuffing.

WHAT WE LIKED ABOUT THE CELEBRATION ROAST WITH TRADITIONAL BREAD STUFFING
We loved the look of this roast. It has the look of a cob of corn on the exterior that looked festive and inviting.

The color was a beautiful golden brown.

It came with gravy, but we didn’t make it because we didn’t want the gravy to compete with the roast.

The flavor was good. There was a slight taste of seitan, which we didn’t mind, but would have preferred it not be there, but they spiced it well.

WHAT WE WOULD IMPROVE IN THE CELEBRATION ROAST WITH TRADITIONAL BREAD STUFFING
The stuffing blended into the roast so well that it was hard to distinguish the two.

It has to be defrosted in the refrigerator overnight.

TOFURKY PLANT-BASED ROAST & WILD RICE STUFFING REVIEW

WHAT WE WOULD IMPROVE IN THE TOFURKY VEGGIE ROAST
It has to be defrosted overnight.

The texture was slightly rubbery.

We like spice and flavor, so if we made this again we’d add a bolder rub to the surface before roasting.

WHAT WE LIKED ABOUT THE GARDEIN HOLIDAY ROAST WITH KALE, CRANBERRY AND WILD RICE STUFFING
EVERYTHING!!!!

You can bake it frozen, no need to thaw. That’s so great for me because I always forget to thaw things out. The other two roasts needed to be thawed in the refrigerator overnight.

Let’s start with the crispy breaded crust. It browned and crisped up perfectly and gave a wonderful texture to the tender and meaty roast.

If we hadn’t known that the meaty part of the roast wasn’t turkey, we would have thought that someone was trying us to slip us the real thing. The texture and the taste was so much like what we remember.

The stuffing was lovely and flavorful.
