Oy Vegan Top 5 Thanksgiving Recipes!

Won­der­ing what to cook for thanks­giv­ing din­ner this week­end? Here are 5 mouth­wa­ter­ing recipes that will impress every­one veg and non-veg alike.

 

1. Por­to­bello Mush­room Gravy

This gravy is seri­ously addic­tive! Peo­ple “ooo” and “aaah” over it every year. Trust me, it’ll be a hit!

2. Pump­kin Pecan Pie

Party Vegan by Robin Robert­son also has an awe­some recipe for pump­kin pecan pie which I love to make. I like how this recipe from Whole­foods incor­po­rates pecans into the crust. I pre­fer to top my pie with pecans mixed with maple syrup and melted earth bal­ance for a tasty topping.

3. Baked tofu or Tofurkey

As a tofu lover, I find a nice mar­i­nated and baked tofu is great on Thanks­giv­ing, but for the tra­di­tion­al­ist, Tofurkey offers great animal-friendly options.

4. Roasted Veg­gies

This recipe from gluten-free god­dess is sweet and satisfying.

5. Vegan Scal­loped Potatoes

This recipe from Post Punk Kitchen will rock your socks.

There you have it! A vegan thanks­giv­ing feast!

I know I wrote about how incred­i­bly kind and social turkeys are last year, but I can’t say it enough… turkeys rock! This thanks­giv­ing, let’s raise a toast to them and how won­der­ful they are!

Let us also hold a moment of silence for all the turkeys who are slaugh­tered at this time of year. I’ll never for­get the late turkeys of Cedar Row Farm Sanc­tu­ary, whose joy­ous spir­its and ener­gies touched me on my visit a few octo­bers ago. Sadly, they died from chest issues as their breasts had become painfully, over­whelm­ing large, some­thing that turkeys bread for meat com­monly expe­ri­ence. They were so won­der­ful and friendly and I will never for­get my encounter that fall day.

So let’s raise a glass to our fine feath­ered friends and encour­age oth­ers to dine with us on incred­i­bly deli­cious, nutri­tious, earth-friendly, and animal-friendly thanks­giv­ing meals.
