Vegan Christmas

Advice, recipes and gift ideas for a merry vegan Christmas


Vegan gravy is easy: you can buy vegan gravy granules (such as Bisto Favourite Gravy Granules - both the regular and reduced salt varieties) or make it from Bisto gravy powder. What you should NOT do is use the juice from the pan in which you are roasting a turkey! Just use boiling water (or water that has been used to boil vegetables) to keep your vegan happy.

Alternatively, you can make your own using the recipe below.

  3. Add the vegetable stock, red wine and soy sauce and stir thoroughly.
