This vegan thanksgiving comes to us from Matt! He made Jenny’s corn casserole!
Vegan Mushroom Duxelle and Vegan Spinach Artichoke dip submitted by Patti! A lovely start to a holiday meal. I’m so jeals, I love spinach artichoke dip but it’s never vegan!
The Germans don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, but funnily enough, they have a word for it: Erntedankfest (literally “Harvest gratitude festival”). For the past three years I have been sharing one of my favorite holidays with a few American friends also in Berlin, as well as bringing the Germans (and other foreigners) in on this tasty (vegan) secret.
This year’s menu consisted of:
Seitan Roast Stuffed with Shiitakes and Leeks
Caramelized Onion-Butternut Roast with Chestnuts
Mashed Spiced Sweet Potatoes
Apple, Sausage, and Sage Sourdough Stuffing
Baby Bok Choy with Crispy Shallots and Sesame Seeds
Pumpkin Coconut Soup
Crustless Pumpkin Pie
She’s My Cherry Pie
From Sarah and Eric!
Here’s our vegan Thanksgiving that we made today: Pearl onions, crescent rolls, collard greens, mashed potatoes, tofurkey, stuffing, tofurkey gravy, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin cheezecake. Not fancy, but very delicious!
THAT WHIPPED CREAM LOOKS AMAZING. Yes to all of this.
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.
Happy cruelty-free Thanksgiving everyone!!!
My little family’s big vegan spread! Featuring roasted brussels sprouts, carrots, parsnips, onions and sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, quinoa-stuffed acorn squash, veggie pot pie, and apple pie for dessert/breakfast the next day. And plenty of wine of course. Happy no-turkey day!
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
From the wonderful Elise:
Here’s the rundown from my 17th annual vegan Thanksgiving. We went to three Thanksgivings: swung by the Souley Vegan brunch in Oakland; visited family in the Easy Bay; and finished out with Thanksgiving with friends at an organic farm in Los Altos. The food was all amazing!!
1. Souley Vegan brunch buffet:
Tofu loaf and gravy, bean salad, green salad, waffles, southern fried tofu, cranberry sauce, collard greens, mashed potatoes, corn
2. Pumpkin pie brownie slice with pecan crumble, topped with coconut-based pumpkin pie spice ice cream (all homemade).
3. Green bean casserole, sweet potato latkes with cranberry applesauce, meatless loaf with gravy, roasted Brussels sprouts/red grapes/walnuts with thyme (all homemade).
I love it so much!!!
