Here’s what my vegan Thanksgiving menu looks like so far:
Appetizer – my husband’s buddy will bring
Side dishes – Creamy Kale Salad with Marinated Onions, vegan stuffing and gravy (my sis will bring) Gourmet Cherry and Cranberry Rum Sauce and candied sweet potatoes (my blogger buddy Ivonne will bring)
Main dish – yet to be determined
Dessert – I’m making my blogger buddy, Poppy’s amazing Baked Nutty Pumpkin and Orange Cheesecake (I’m cheating on my no-sugar pledge, but just for the holiday)
So this weekend I just have to decide on the main dish. Here’s what I’m considering:
1. Versatile Vegan Quiche by Vegangela
Quiche may not be traditional Thanksgiving fare, but when it looks this good, who cares!
2. Simple Lasagna by ifit.com.
My husband loves pasta, so he’ll be celebrating if I serve this for Thanksgiving dinner. What I like about this Simple Lasagna recipe is that it’s easy and basic and can be changed up in any way you like. I, for example, would add spinach and olives to it.
3. Thanksgiving Meatless Loaf by Fat Free Vegan Kitchen
I can just see a thick slice of this luscious loaf next to the stuffing, candied yams and cranberry sauce. This dish is also simple and really healthy!
4. Mushroom & Wild Rice Brioche by An Unrefined Vegan
Just look at this show-stopping dish Annie dreamed up. I’ve never even heard of a brioche before, but I know it will wow my friends and family.
5. Seitan Stuffed with Walnuts, Dried Cranberries & Mushrooms by Fat Free Vegan Kitchen
This seitan dish would be another show-stopper on my Thanksgiving table.
6. Sweet Potato Gnocchi by Food Republic
My husband loves all pasta, but I’m selective. I don’t care for spaghetti and some other pastas, but I love gnocchi, especially Sweet Potato Gnocchi. I’ve never made it from scratch, but this recipe looks simple enough.
7. ‘Beef’ Mushroom Wellington by Live Blissful
This ‘Beef’ Mushroom Wellington looks amazing!!! No one’s going to miss turkey if this is on their plate.
If you’re vegan, what do you make for holiday gatherings?
