Votes In Favor of Field Roast!
The votes are in. All are in favor of the Dirty Vegan replicating the Field Roast that we ate at the Farm Sanctuary's Celebration for the Turkeys. Well...Field Roast's Celebration Roast is already prepared. So I will talk a little bit about it, and give you some ideas on how to cook your already prepared roast.
Field Roast products are grain "meat" products, similar to Tofurky products. Field Roast have a more moist and tender consistency, versus Tofurky which is more firm. Field Roast provides artisan and vegan products and they are very flavorful. In fact, very little seasoning, if any at all, are needed when you cook their products, especially the Celebration Roast, which was one of the items offered at the Farm Sanctuary dinner.
What you will want to do, is create a baste or sauce to cook this in. Prepare and cook according to the instructions on the package. You can also follow other "roast" recipes. I have made Tofurky with a can of cola, veggies, and a few seasonings in the crocpot, following recipes, so I'm sure with Field Roast you can do the same. The way this was prepared at the dinner, was very simple, yet flavorful due to this product already being pre-seasoned. It contains stuffing in the center, like Tofurky. I am partial to Tofurky's stuffing. Just my opinion.
To try to mimic the roast we ate at the dinner, I would say to place your celebration roast in an oven pan, surrounded by big chopped chunks of onion, carrots, and potato, and use some kind of baste. The baste can consist of olive oil, veggie broth, wine, and your favorite seasonings. Thyme is a very nice complimentary flavor to Field Roast.
Just have fun with it! This is the easiest thing to prepare and cook ever! To be honest, I wish you all voted on the Pumpkin Bisque, however I think you are curious about Field Roast, so I'm glad to give some information about it. The link is above, so feel free to browse their site and their yummy products! And for now, the Dirty Vegan is signing off.
