for christmas and thanksgiving dinner we usually do the roll-ups with vegan lunchmeat and stuffing. and just lots of veggies and potatoes, mushroom gravy etc.<br><br><br><br>
but i might be getting a little bored of the rollups, i think i want something a little more susbtantial this year. any ideas? we can't go too crazy on the veggies and stuff, the omnis eat them too and some are picky about what we make and how we make it. so steamed carrots and brocolli are pretty much it. mashed potatoes are a must-have. so i guess i just need a suggestion for my protein that'll fit in with christmas dinner.

I've loved just about every nutloaf recipe I've tried, and omnis seem to think of it as a yummy stuffing-like side dish. I also like to do various combos of mushrooms and puffpastry, though those aren't very protein rich. This year I'm thinking of doing the quinoa croquetts from VWAV.

There are many threads here about the "turkey alternatives" such as UnTurkey and Tofurkey. Are either of these an option?<br><br><br><br>
Some phyllo dough is vegan and you can make some sort of "loaf" style mixture with rice, nuts, tofu, mushrooms, whatever - and stuff little phyllo pockets and bake. Very yummy.<br><br><br><br>
And mushrooms do have protein! Stuffed mushrooms (use large ones or portabellos) can be very filling.<br><br><br><br>
Bryanna Clark Grogan has tons of seitan "roast" recipes that are super simple too. I've always had good luck with her combinations and the "turkey" one I made last month was eerily "turkey" like... (Just do a Google search, I'm too lazy to link right now - heh)

Last year I made Mushroom Wellingtons (seasoned portabellos wrapped in pastry). They were very tasty and substantial and the presentation was nice too.
