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.
