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
Even though I was the only vegan in the room, I had plenty to fill my plate!
kale salad with lemon vinaigrette
ginger & garlic sautéed green beans
balsamic roasted brussel sprouts with toasted pecans
sautéed onions & bell peppers
I also made a vegan & gf pumpkin pie (pie crust from this recipe from Oh She Glows)

This was from a Gentle Thanksgiving I attended at Peace Ridge Sanctuary. First vegan thanksgiving, and it was wonderful!
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!

SO grateful for an accommodating aunt that made all the veggie dishes vegan friendly!
I had a lot of fun cooking this mess, and even more fun eating it. I’ll go clockwise starting from the left side of the plate.
