HAZELNUT CRANBERRY ROAST En Croute

HAZELNUT CRANBERRY ROAST En Croute

by FIELD ROAST Grain Meats

Served with Mustard Grape Sage Sauce as a main dish roast or on an English muffin sandwich! Yes to it all!

En Croute means ‘in a pastry crust’. Today we’re serving an Artisan Vegan 100% Plant Based ROAST made from grains and veggies. Manufactured with the rosemary, candied ginger & sausage stuffing situated in the center of the roast, all formed in a neat roll wrapped in pastry.


Essentially the people over at FIELD ROAST developed a plant version of Beef Wellington, using the textures and flavors of sausage rather than beef. How’d they do? Well, I never had a beef Wellington in my animal-eating days, but I know what one is and what pastry and beef tastes like separately, so I can comfortably say that I’m glad I waited to experience the plant version first. Although I don’t make pastry, I’m a fan of pastry wrapped foods.


My contribution to this dish, besides following baking instructions to the letter, is a Mustard Sage Red Grape Sauce with Kalamata olive.

The crust, even when at room temperature, was flaky throughout. The roast, although giving the impression that it would be a little mushy, was firm and chewy, like you’d expect a sausage roast to be. Mashed potatoes and a green veggie side dish would have completed a holiday version of this meal, but it didn’t need side dishes for our purposes.

Serve this roast to any guests for any meal. When you aim to impress, this plant version of beef Wellington will come through for you!

So Delicious Coconut Culinary Cream

Finally a creamer we can use for savory dishes in addition to desserts.

The ORIGINAL style textures like thick whipped cream when chilled.

The LITE version textures like thick cream when chilled.

I enjoyed working with this product, especially since FARM RICH non-dairy creamer once used for soups and sauces was taken off the market.

The containers however are quite small, probably enough for one recipe. Quart size would be more economical and the home chef wouldn’t have to run to a specialty market every time they wanted to use this culinary cream.

Here are a few recipes I developed using this product:

Field Roast Celebration Roast

Stuffed with butternut squash, apples and mushrooms. I like to pan-fry mine – although next time I’ll try baking it just to see the difference between both cooking methods.

It’s a superior product. I served it with mashed potatoes, gravy and veggies. Then on another day, made a sub on broiled country style French bread, with lettuce, tomato and specialty mustard, then pan-fried slices of Celebration Roast topped with Tomato Cayenne Chao Cheese slices – also made by Field Roast.

I put the lid to the inside of the pan and the cheese melted nicely.

All great!

Field Roast Breakfast Sausage

Not as chewy as Field Roasts’s other grain meats. That’s good that not all their meats have the same texture. These are lighter. And yes, I could taste the maple flavor.

They cook up great. Of course I like to put a little char on mine.

Serve for breakfast or as a supper main dish grain meat!

You can bake it, eat it cold or fry it up in extra virgin olive as I did. Put it on a sandwich or serve as the main dish.

I served mine with KALAMATA RED GRAVY. Delicious! The texture when pan-fried was superb! Flavor too – superb!

PRODUCT REVIEW OF FIELD ROAST CHAO CHEESE

FIELD ROAST CHAO CHEESE

CREAMY ORIGINAL – PRODUCT OF GREECE

There really aren’t that many companies that make vegan cheese singles. I’ve tried most of them – some I can work with, others I can’t. Not yet anyway – some companies still need to evolve their recipes/formulas. After all, people are fairly new to the concept of dairy-free cheeses, but if they stay in long enough they’ll figure it out.
