Summer Crockpot Roast Recipe

Tofurky is not just for fall and winter, Kids! Here is a nice summery recipe to prepare a Tofurky (or even Field Roast if you wish)...and get this one, it is crockpot easy!

This Season's Hottest 'Summer Crockpot Tofurky' Recipe

1.5 cups cauliflower florets
2 cups water
1 "beef" bouillon cube (I used Edward & Son's "Not Beef" flavor)
2 heaping tbsp vegan butter (I used Smart Balance Light)
1/2 onion, chopped
2 tbsp garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
Sea salt & black pepper to taste
1 Tofurky Roast

Place all ingredients in crockpot on High for 7 hours, switching to Low for the last couple hours if necessary. This depends on if you thawed your Tofurky or not. I chose to run mine under warm water, just enough to safely remove the outer casing (please be careful either way - I safely snipped off one end with kitchen shears then peeled casing off) and cook the entire 7 hours on High. This can be served with sides like a summery salad and/ or bread and the accompanying Tofurky Gliblet Gravy. Enjoy!

The cauliflower adds body that's hearty but light without the heaviness like autumn/ winter potatoes!
