Here’s how to have a vegan roast this Christmas!
We know that each year it’s getting easier and easier to go vegan, isn’t it?! But when it comes to Christmas there are still a number of traditional staples that we may find hard to replace with delicious cruelty-free alternatives. One of those is the classic Australian roast! The roast is for many families a non-negotiable Christmas item and this year we are pleased to say that there are a whole host of vegan alternatives to get your teeth stuck into! So below you will find the vegan roasts available here in Australia. We would love to know which ones you’ve tried and which are your favourites!
