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
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!
