In a little more than a month, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving. It’s a holiday that can be a nightmare for many people, especially vegans and vegetarians. Personally, Thanksgiving in the past few years has been sometimes hit and mostly miss.
In the first year of my vegetarianism I had to take control of preparing the stuffing. My family loves to add sausage and turkey drippings and then deny they ever heard of sausage and turkey drippings. The second year I was surprised with a Stouffer’s Manicotti plate. While I appreciated the gesture, I knew I couldn’t let that happen again. The third year was spent with my boyfriend’s family. While the butternut squash stuffing and the vegetables were great, there was almost no main dish. I don’t know about you but I’m completely freaked out by Tofurky (and many other processed fake meat) so that is out of the question.
For the next month, I will be testing and posting various meat and dairy-free dishes that will wow your family. The goal of this is to share easy, delicious recipes. Some recipes you can expect are:
- Easy Butternut Squash Risotto
- Soysage Stuffing
- Mashed rootables
- Seitan Medallions with Mushroom Gravy
- Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake bars
Hopefully one of these will be up by tomorrow! If you have any suggestions, please feel free to share!
