Vegetarian Christmas Dinner, Miso Gravy, Homemade Cranberry Orange Sauce


Vegetarian Christmas Dinner


When I was vegetarian, one of the things I missed the most was gravy. When I discovered miso gravy was a thing, I decided I must figure out how to make it. So it was close to christmas time, so I made this faux chicken and miso gravy feast. The stuffing is veggie as well. Actually, it all is veg!

ingredients:

faux chicken
zucchini
potatoes
milk
butter
salt
pepper

stuffing:

bread
egg
apple
onion
celery
salt
pepper
onion powder
garlic powder

directons: Toast the bread and cut it into cubes. Beat eggs and mix with bread so it's coated. Fry chopped onions and celery in a pan. And add those with the apple to the bread mixture. Season with salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. Put in a casserole dish and cook in an oven at 400. Maybe 20-30 minutes.

cranberry sauce:

1 bag of fresh cranberries
1/4 cup of orange juice
1/2 cup sugar

directions: Put cranberries, orange juice (and zest if you have it), and sugar into a small pot at medium heat. Cook for 10-15 minutes. The cranberries will burst on their own and the pectin in the cranberries will turn it into a sauce on its own.

miso gravy:

1 and 1/2 cups veggie stock (or water with veggie bouillon cube)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp dijon mustard
3 tbsp miso paste
corn starch or flour

directions: Add your veggie stock into a sauce pan, mix in your miso paste, add your oil (for fat), dijon mustard (for tang), and some garlic powder. Mix with a whisk. Thicken with a corn starch mixture, or flour, until it is a gravy consistency.
