What I’m bringing to Thanksgiving this year!

Giv­ing a lot of thanks this year for many things. A new house and a new love on the way! That’s right, we’re expect­ing. I’m 19 weeks preg­nant. I have lots to share about my expe­ri­ence so far.. includ­ing what I’ve been eating/ what sup­ple­ments I’ve been tak­ing. Stay tuned for upcom­ing posts. I would love to hear from other preg­nant vegan mamas out there!

In the mean­time, I wanted to share with you what I’m plan­ning to make for Cana­dian Thanks­giv­ing this year.

I’m super excited for this recipe. I couldn’t sleep the other night, was brows­ing Pin­ter­est and came across this gem.

Puff Pas­try Wrapped Lentil Loaf!

I’m cur­rently on the hunt for vegan pas­try that I can quickly braid over the lentil loaf. This recipe looks so scrumptious.

I’ll be mak­ing my Por­to­bello Mush­room Gravy to pour on top. I’m mak­ing a dou­ble batch this year as I’ll be attend­ing two din­ners and I def­i­nitely don’t want to run out. mmmmm mush­room gravy.…

Instead of mak­ing pump­kin pie this year, I’m tak­ing the easy way out and buy­ing a vegan pump­kin pie. Actu­ally I’ve already bought a few of them. One for each din­ner and an extra for daily con­sump­tion (obvi­ously). Right now many Toronto bak­eries are stock­ing them includ­ing Apieca­lypse Now, Through Being Cool Vegan Bak­ing Co., Bunner’s Bake Shop, Tori’s Bakeshop and even Whole Foods (Yorkville)!

I will also be bring­ing a Tofurky Roast for fun.

I’m count­ing on oth­ers to pro­vide the roasted veg­gie side dishes. But if you are look­ing for ideas, here are some tasty ones.

So happy thanks­giv­ing to one and all. Let us take time this thanks­giv­ing to think of the beau­ti­ful, intel­li­gent, and socia­ble turkeys who are killed in the name of a hol­i­day which is sup­posed to be about grat­i­tude and the harvest.

Let us instead enjoy the mul­ti­tude of plant-based dishes avail­able to us and cher­ish being with loved ones big and small. Happy thanksgiving.

Oy Vegan!
