Upton’s Naturals is bringing heat-and-eat convenience to the holiday table with new Vegan Holiday Roast Slices in Gravy. Ready in as little as five minutes, the fully cooked, sliced seitan roast (plus gravy!) contains four servings and can be dressed up with classic sides for a complete, plant-based holiday plate. It’s also a delicious turkey alternative for making classic recipes like the Thanksgiving “leftovers” sandwich – simply pile the cooked slices on a toasted bun and top with mashed potatoes, kale, and cranberry sauce. 

“We've offered a vegan holiday meal featuring sliced seitan roast with gravy at our Chicago restaurant for many years. It's particularly popular with lone vegans joining the family holiday table or for those who want to easily enjoy a meat-free turkey meal without doing all the cooking. We're happy to now make this best-selling dish accessible to consumers all over the country,” said Dan Staackmann, founder of Upton’s Naturals.

Made with simple ingredients like vital wheat gluten, soy sauce, nutritional yeast, and whole wheat flour, plus sea salt, garlic and onion, the 100% vegan product features 16 grams of protein and just 2 grams of fat per serving. It’s also CRC Kosher Pareve, contains no GMOs, and is free of cholesterol.

Crafted in the USA, Upton’s Naturals’ Vegan Holiday Roast Slices in Gravy is now available for retailers nationwide to carry for an SRP of $9.99 and is currently sold at all Sprouts Farmers Markets locations.
