Simple Roast Dinner
It’s pretty easy to create a delicious vegan roast dinner from ready mades! Here’s the low-down…
Roast – they tend to come in three types
- dried packet, eg Artisan Grains (comes with its own baking tray) or Suma
- frozen roasts eg Morrison’s Vegetarian Squash & Nut Roasts
- meat alternative whole roast eg Tofurkey or VBites
Roast Potatoes – Aunt Bessie’s Roasts (avoid the duck/goose fat type!) and other supermarket own-brands are vegan, but not all, so ask
Side Veg – frozen are usually vegan, just check there’s no added dairy (butter, milk etc) – do the same with ready-prepped, chilled veg too
Gravy – Lots of dried varieties are vegan, eg Sainsbury’s Vegetarian Gravy Mix – green tub; Bisto red tub; Free & Easy free-from gravy mix in a tub. Free and Easy also make a ready-to heat liquid Caramelised Red Onion Gravy!
Optional extras / notes
Timings depend on the type of roast used – and most of this will be oven based so fairly hassle-free!

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.
Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding.
