I’m making vegetarian porchetta! (Vegan, really, but who’s counting?) Welcome to the weekly Meatless (Vegan) Monday Link-up and my vegan recipe for the week. I’ve never heard of Porchetta (I’m not really a connoisseur of meat, so this isn’t a big surprise). But this seemed pretty yummy.
When LightLife sent me some samples of their Grilled Chicken cutlets, I thought I would porchetta-ize them. After all, the cutlets emulate chicken, but most veggie “meats” take on the taste of the spices and sauces you put them in. So here it goes, porchetta-style chicken cutlets.
Adapted from Porchetta.
1 package LightLife Grilled Chicken Cutlets (or 2 cups cooked chickpeas)
1/4 cup olive oil
8 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons rosemary, chopped
2 tablespoons sage, chopped
zest of 1 lemon
1 1/2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons cracked black pepper
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoons fennel seeds
1 tablespoons dill seeds
1 teaspoon bacon salt (or liquid smoke)
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Layered dinner option: 3 large sweet potatoes
Marinate the “pork” in all the other ingredients. Place in crockpot and cover with foil. I added four sweet potatoes to roast on top, you can do this or leave them out (or do regular potatoes). Cook on low 4-6 hours or until potatoes are baked
Wow. Spicy. I like it. And double duty for the slow cooker with the baked sweet potatoes is always a bonus. I love it. Another great layered sweet potato dinner, if you like this one is this yummy pesto “chicken” dinner, check it out!
I was not compensated for this post, nor was I asked to write this post in exchange for the product; however, LightLife did provide me with samples of their products to test.

Today’s Meatless/Vegan Monday meal is Gnocchi Bathed in Brown Butter from Heather at Girlichef.
OMG, did she say bathed? Oh yes, she did. Drool. I may have dreamed about this meal. In my dream I ate the whole thing and then the bowl magically refilled itself.
