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 LeeksCaramelized Onion-Butternut Roast with ChestnutsMashed PotatoesMashed Spiced Sweet PotatoesApple, Sausage, and Sage Sourdough StuffingBaby Bok Choy with Crispy Shallots and Sesame SeedsBrussel SproutsPumpkin Coconut SoupCrustless Pumpkin PieShe’s My Cherry Pie

Moar Vegan Thanksgiving  »

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!!!

Happy Thanxvegan from Midcoast Maine!  »

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

Vegan Thanksgiving for Two in San Francisco  »

Gardein Holiday Roast with sides and Panil Barriquée sour ale

Everything on a plate. The cranberry sauce and rolls are homemade and the potatoes are loaded with Earth Balance, TJ’s soy creamer, and Just Mayo vegan mayonnaise.

After dinner we made some hot wassail with Madeira, baked apples with brown sugar, California brown ale and winter spices. This glass features some bonus vegan marshmallows.

[AMAZING - Ed.]

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
