Christmas Turkey Taco Loaf

Christmas Turkey Taco Loaf
This is the perfect vegetarian dish for the holidays, when you don't feel like spending much time in the kitchen. During the holidays I love spending time with family and friends, which means I need to cut down my time in the kitchen. That's why I love this recipe, plus you can make it the day before and just heat it up minutes before your dinner. The idea for the recipe actually came from my mom, because she typically makes this for our holidays meals. So you too can make it a family tradition. 

This part is it the most simple, as long as your health food store has these in stock. I use the Worthington turkey log, but you can also make my other turkey recipe and slice it up for this recipe as well. 

Stuffing Recipe:
1 package bread crumbs
5 Tbsp vegan butter
1/2 onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 cups vegetable broth
1 1/2 Tbsp McKay's Chick'n Seasoning
1 tsp sage
1/2 tsp thyme

Gravy Recipe: 
1/3 cup vegan butter
1/3 cup flour
1 Tbsp McKay's beef seasoning
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 cup water
1 cup soy milk

Benefits of Garlic
It's a great natural antibiotic, helps to lower cholesterol, increases blood fluidity, it is anti-carcinogenic, helps to combat hypertension, and inhibits the formation of malignant tumors. 

Benefits of Onion
Loosens bronchial mucus, prevents arteriosclerosis, and also helps prevents cancer.

This is the Worthington veggie turkey loaf that can be used in the recipe. You can always use whatever veggie turkey you want to slice up for this recipe. 

Enjoy the holidays!
