Vegan's Boxing Day Dinner
By McDonald, T. | Date 2nd of December 2021
It has long since been a tradition in England to have cold meat, mash and pickles for Boxing Day dinner. With the advent of vegan cold meats on the deli counter this must have dinner for the Christmas period is no longer something a vegan has to miss out on.
Severs 1. (Multiply by number of diners)
- 280g of White Potato.
- Vegan cold meats of your choice x as many slices as you like!
- Pickles of your choice x a few tbsp.
- Tomato x 1.
- 1/4 of Bell pepper
Since we are vegan, I suggest adding a heaped teaspoon of nutritional yeast with B12 to the mash and leaving the skins on to give it that extra flavour and nutrition. I use olive oil instead of vegan butter for the mash. All you have to think about is what mock meat and what pickles you want. For the mock meat, I chose Squeaky Bean Pastrami and their Deli Style Ham for last year's Boxing Day, which was a great idea since their mock deli meats really are good. As for the pickles, I like to have Branston pickle, pickled gherkins, pickled onions, piccalilli and pickled red cabbage with mine. If you are worried about nutrition, you could fry some of those leftover Brussels sprouts to have with it or add some olives and sun dried tomato.
