Veggies in Blankets – A Very Vegan Christmas

Serves: 6

Time: 1 hour

Price: €4.29 – €0.72 per portion

Pigs in blankets were always one of my favourite parts of Christmas dinner, so since I keep the little piggies off my plate now I wanted to prove to myself that it was possible to veganize this traditional side! And I DID IT!

I’m delighted to share this recipe with you as it shows that you don’t need animals on your plate to enjoy “all the trimmings”.

You will need:

  • 6 vegan sausages
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 2tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 carrot – sliced thinly, I used a peeler

I chose these vegan sausages because they are slightly thinner and more like a chipolata. The “no porkies” ones from Iceland would work great for this, too – or the Linda McCartney rosemary and red onion sausages as their flavour is quite festive!

How to make it:

Add the tamari, maple syrup, liquid smoke and garlic powder into a dish then lay the carrot strips in for their cold bath. Marinate this for at least 30mins – you can leave it overnight if you want but 30 mins is the minimum.

Wrap your cruelty-free piggies in the carrot strips and bake or grill until the sausages are cooked through – this will vary depending on your sausage choice. You can add a little bit of oil at this stage if you want them to look nice and glazed but that’s not essential!

That’s it – serve with your Christmas roast and watch as all your guests are amazed at you pulling off vegan pigs-in-blankets.

The final Christmas dessert will be up tomorrow so make sure to follow the blog so that you don’t miss out!
