Vegan Thanksgiving Feast

Sunday, November 11th, 2007

Vegan holiday food is actually some of the easiest and tastiest food you can make (or buy). Below are recipes for mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, glazed brussel sprouts and pumpkin pie. Cranberry sauce, green beans, salads, sweet potatoes…all the other favorites are already vegan, or so close you won’t need a recipe (Annie’s Goddess dressing instead of the tired old ranch dressing, green beans cooked in veg stock instead of chicken stock, etc).

The main dish is the big question. Tofurky? A big stuffed squash? Thanksgiving Loaf? That’s up to you and your personal tastes. If you’re celebrating with a crowd, try to arrange one of each centerpiece foods (Tofurky, stuffed squash). Have a taste test and then you’ll know what you like in the future.

Mashed Potatoes

Cashew Gravy
Cornbread and Pecan Stuffing
Glazed Brussel Sprouts
Pumpkin Patch “Cheesecake”

Also included is a list for even more holiday resources.

Here’s the scoop on the Bay Area Veg Thanksgiving plans to date. You’ll find full details for each event on the calendar.

11/22 Coastside Thanksgiving Celebration – Pacifica
Hosted by Ann & Reeba at their home.

11/22 Animals are Friends, not Food Thanksgiving Celebration – Emeryville
Hosted by George. In recent years, it’s been at New World but this year moving to Manzanita Restaurant (organic, macrobiotic foods — and a buffet!!).

11/22 Vegan Thanksgiving Celebration – SF – Castro
Hosted by Kim and Jamie. They’ve been hosting since we started doing community events. 🙂

If you’re interested in hosting a Bay Area Veg Thanksgiving event in your community, but haven’t contacted me yet, there is still time! This can be Vegan Food Party style, or a dinner at your favorite restaurant. As you can see, celebrations on the weekend before Thanksgiving or the day itself are both fine.

Here is the general information on event hosting:

If you love Thanksgiving foods as I do, please talk about them. In the “What Do Vegans Eat?” forum, we have a special category for Thanksgiving.
