Our vegan Thanksgiving spread! This is my 17th meatless year, and 6th totally vegan. My husband is vegetarian, and the rest of our family is omni, to quote my uncle mid-meal last night, “You’ll make a vegan of me yet!”
Roasted Brussels sprouts, Roasted Cauliflower & Red Skinned Garlic Potato Mash (cauliflower roasted with extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt, and pepper, roasted garlic, and boiled red-skinned potatoes, mashed with earth balance, a little soy milk, lots of nooch, sea salt, and pepper), and my husband’s favorite - Tofurky! Marinated with olive oil, soy sauce, rosemary, and thyme, and surrounded by roasted sweet potatoes, carrots, and sweet onions.
For the past two years my husband and I lived in San Francisco and attended a “Thanxvegan” dinner that our friend held for 30 to 40 guests. This year, after a cross-country move to Maine, we made our own holiday vegan dinner … for just us two. We had Trader Joe’s Turkey-less Stuffed Roast (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/34832597089695343/), homemade cranberry sauce, and garlic mashed potatoes made with nutritional yeast and Tofutti Sour Cream (http://www.tofutti.com/dairy-free-cheeses/sour-cream). My favorite dish was the sausage, sage, and apple stuffing made with Tofurky Italian links (http://www.tofurky.com/tofurkyproducts/sausages.html). We enjoyed vegan pumpkin pie and coconut whipped cream for dessert. Happy Thanxvegan, Sadie & Jeremy Roberts
Potato bread rolls, carmelized sweet potatoes, cheesy potatoes, mashed potatoes with gravy, Gardein holiday roast (one with Gardein gravy & one with homemade chickpea gravy), stuffing in the middle. We also had 2 pumpkin pies and a peanut butter ice cream pie with chocolate on top.
I didn’t plan very well this year so I just made up a few recipes day of and it turned out surprisingly well! I had maple glazed sweet potatoes and apples, roasted brussel sprouts, garlic mashed potatoes, and some kale with leftovers from my work. (I work at Veggie Grill, oh and I used some of our mushroom gravy for my potatoes) Hella tasty
My first tofurkey!! Ive been a Proud Vegan for just about 5-6 years and Ive never made tofurkey. It came out delicious, my non-vegan family member and boyfriend absolutely loved it. Its a pleasure to see enjoy my plant-based creations.
From the bread moving clockwise: beer bread, potatoes au gratin, spaghetti and corn casserole, roasted mushrooms, green bean casserole, cauliflower tabouli salad, lima beans, more mushrooms, orange cranberry sauce, roasted baby carrots and some delicata squash in the middle. omnomnom.
Shane knew that I was feeling bummed because of the holidays, so he made me a Thanksgiving Pizza to cheer me up! It’s a lot like the one we had in 2011, with mashed potatoes, stuffing, Tofurky (slices AND Kielbasa; a strange choice, but I’m not complaining) and gravy - BUT it has a top crust too. The result is kind of like a giant pot pie. So, so good. I swear I ate my weight in gravy. One slice filled me up, but we also have leftover potatoes and stuffing. It’s gonna take us the good part of a week to finish it all. Yay no cooking for me all weekend!
