My Vegan Thanksgiving Menu and Recipes from some Awesome Bloggers…

This is what’s on the menu for Thanksgiving at my house and I am proud to announce it will be my first Vegan Thanksgiving. I am really excited about this and can’t wait to see what my family thinks. This is a pretty traditional Thanksgiving sans Turkey, butter, oil and low-sodium of course. There are some major carbs here, but I have requests to deal with and I’m thankful enough I get to make it vegan!! lol =)

Here’s my Vegan Thanksgiving Menu:

Vegetable Wellington with Mushroom Gravy

Baby Spinach Salad with Shaved Apples and Cranberries – Apple Cider Dressing

Sourdough Bread Stuffing with Smoke Apple Sage Sausage and Almonds – still vegan!

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Caramelized Shallots

Mashed Potatoes with Fresh Chives

Cranberry Orange Date Sauce

Pecan Pie

If I could make this twice and post it for you today I would, but that’s impossible isn’t it? Unless I was Wonder Woman, but alas I’m not =).

What I can do for you, is give you some AMAZING recipes from some fantastic blogger friends from around the web.

The Ultimate Thanksgiving recipe inspiration is just one more sentence away.

I hope you enjoy, I know I am salivating just looking at these photos!
