Leftovers Week

No joke amongst the veg, every year around this time, there's a Quorn Roast shortage in supermarkets that carry it. If you get past your fakemeatphobia and the odd looks of the thing, Quorn is an insanely good mycoprotein (vegetarian, not vegan) that tastes like veggie turkey slices. It's considerably more moist than regular turkey and keeps for days after you roast it without drying out, giving you a future of faux turkey sandwiches. Top it off with these stats per serving: 90 calories, 1.5 g fat, 5 g fiber, and 14 g protein.

If you take your leftovers a little more seriously, Memphis Taproom's Leftover Sandwich has it all--puy lentil and pumpkin seed loaf, chestnut stuffing, dijonnaise, and cranberry compote. It combines the texture of a meatless loaf with a moist stuffing on a pillowy roll. Cranberry adds a gripping sweetness to the sandwich's layered flavors. This is a steady team effort. There's also some Chicken Fried Seitan in their seasonal additions, but I'm ready for more leftovers.
