Happy Thanksgiving from reader Dan, who writes that “13 vegan, vegetarian, and vegan-friendly people enjoyed this all-vegan feast! We invented a new holiday. It’s called “Thanks again” and it happens May 24, six months from now—because it’s too good to only do this once a year!
Here we have a delicious plate of Tofurky, maple-chipotle-pomegranate glazed Field Roast, butternut squash chestnut soup with balsamic pears on top, pumpkin cranberry risotto, wild rice stuffing, fig-pomegranate cranberry sauce, yams with Dandies marshmallows, green bean casserole, classic stuffing, mashed potatoes, mashed ginger-coconut sweet potatoes, garlicky Brussels sprouts, two kinds of gravy, artichoke dip with tortilla chips.”
This group knows how to eat! Your tables must have been groaning. You have definitely earned your Vegansaurus gluttony badge this year.
It’s your daily Thanksgiving preview! You guys are going to send me a million photos of your Thanksgiving dinners once you’ve had them next week, RIGHT? I made a special email folder for them last year that I’ve kept for this year because I’m so excited to see and share your beautiful food! Man that came out way creepier than intended, whoops.
This photo is from Andi’s vegan Thanksgiving potluck and you should really read her description of all the different dishes piled on those plates because holy moly, did Andi and her friends eat like kings! How many of you are having potluck Thanksgiving this year? How many of you are having TWO Thanksgivings, one of which is a potluck? Your Vegansaurus recommends eating as many Thanksgiving meals as possible, because eating is awesome and Thanksgiving food is really the best. All that sage and rosemary and root vegetables? And the gourds! Sweet and savory!
I need a minute.
Happy Thanksgiving from reader Andi, who writes that her vegan potluck was “bomb dot com. Two types of stuffing, Tofurky, maple chipotle glazed Field Roast, brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes with Dandies marshmallows, stuffed acorn squash, sweet potato knishes, pear and endive salad with candied pecans, butternut squash and mushroom tart, green bean casserole, and mashed potatoes with gravy. For dessert? A layered chocolate and vanilla crème brûlée custard, pumpkin pie, and baked apples with Soy Whip!”
And that would explain the place settings at what is clearly a desk, and why those two plates are piled obscenely high with food. Andi and friends, your potluck gets the Vegansaurus stamp of gluttonous approval. We are so, so proud of you. Happy Thanksgiving!
