Robyn in Berkeley made a super-gravy-ful plate of leftovers: technically an open-face hot seitan sandwich with mushroom gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce, but I bet about 35 percent of that plate is gravy alone. Still! Everything except the single slice of bread is homemade, and the seitan is Ellen’s chef Roberto’s recipe. Really, it looks delicious; hard to go wrong with homemade seitain and gravy! Happy post-Thanksgiving weekend, Robyn!
Happy Thanksgiving from Pennie Mills of Vegan Aesthetics and The Compassionate Blend! Her plate is covered with, clockwise from top right, vegan holiday roast with gravy, cran-pear sauce, baby brussels sprouts with caramelized onions and roasted garlic rice vinegar, sweet potato casserole, and herb dressing. Pennie tweaked Ellen’s chef Roberto’s recipe for the roast, and got the Sexy Vegan Stuffing and last-minute gravy help from VegWeb! Happy Thanksgiving, Pennie!
Today, Friday, Nov. 19, Chef Roberto makes a vegan Thanksgiving meal on The Ellen Show! Boyfriend whips up a seitan-based vegan turkey that sounds absolutely delicious and they eat it and it looks rad, and there are recipes for the rest of Ellen and Portia’s vegan Thanksgiving feast on the website. Now we can all be more like Ellen and Portia because really, that’s how we should all live our lives. Every morning, get out of bed and go, “How can I be more like Ellen and Portia today?” The world would totally be a better place if everyone did that. And a cuter place. And a smarter place. And a more hilarious place. OK, I’ll stop while I’m still slightly short of Single White Female.
