Vegan Thanksgiving

by Julie Fletcher

With all of the hullabaloo about Thanksgiving and turkey recipes floating around the ‘net, Vegan families, especially those who have just made the change to veganism might feel left out. There is absolutely no reason to not enjoy a happy holiday based on dietary preferences, though.

Are you running short of ideas? Perhaps the recipes you’ve found involve ingredients you’re not familiar with or that seem too expensive. Never fear, Family Resource is here with ideas to make your table the envy of your meat eating friends!

You see, as a vegan, you have an edge over us carnivores. Less time spent on cooking a large bird, plus room in the oven saved. Plus, you don’t have to obsess over a stuffed bird and the possibility of unpleasant side effects from undercooking that stuffing. But, you probably already know that!

If you’re wondering what will be your main dish, why not try the dressing recipe from the previous post? Just use the vegan substitutions. For a unique presentation, cook the dressing in a large metal mixing bowl. Bake it on a lower heat for a slightly longer period of time. Once the dressing begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl, remove from the over and invert the bowl into a large roasting pan. Carefully remove the bowl from the dressing, try to make sure the dressing stays together in one large mass. Place back in the oven at 400 degrees to slightly crisp the outside of the dressing. If you’d like, place the dressing in a pan that is safe for oven to table presentation.

Now you have a main dish to place in the middle of your table! For added effect, drizzle a tasty vegan gravy over the dressing.
