Easy, Elegant Easter Dinner

 Celebrate Easter   with our updated take on a traditional dish: soy-based faux ham with a zesty apricot glaze. Our glazed “ham” is not only delicious, it’s rich in heart-healthy soy protein and dietary fiber, plus it’s 100 percent cholesterol-free.

Accompanied by slow-cooked collard greens and savory mashed potatoes as side dishes and a moist, eggless apple cake as dessert, this is one Easter dinner that everyone (including the pigs!) will love.

Mustard and Apricot Glazed ‘Ham’

1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup apricot jam
1 Tbsp. minced fresh chives
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. horseradish
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 Veg S.W. Ham (available from
www.vegieworld.com), sliced into 1-inch-thick rounds

• Combine all of the ingredients except the vegetarian ham in a bowl and mix well.
• Brush the mixture over both sides of each slice of “ham” and arrange, overlapping each piece, on a baking sheet. Cover with foil and bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for 20 minutes.
• Uncover the ham and cook for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
