Then again aren’t I always? Anyways, here’s my long overdue Thanksgiving post that is almost (but not quite) a week late.
Clockwise from the olives are mashed red potatoes, Tofurky, green bean casserole, sweet bread, sweet potato casserole, and some veggies that I cooked my Tofurky in.
First up, are my mashed potatoes. These are really the only thing that I didn’t use a recipe for.
Boil your potatoes until soft, drain them, and immediately put them back in the warm pot. Add all of the ingredients with a splash of milk and begin to mash the potatoes. Add more milk as needed until you get the consistency you want.
My Tofurky was the stuffing filled Tofurky brand roast that comes with its own gravy. I put it in my slow cooker with 2 cups of vegetable broth, a packet of onion soup mix, a splash of evoo, Ms. Dash table blend seasoning, one carrot chopped, a handful of chopped onions, and black pepper. I cooked it on high for two hours.
Green Bean Casserole:
I wanted to try something different for my green bean casserole and when I saw Sunny Vegan’s recipe that called for actual onion rings rather than those weird crispy things you get in a can, I knew I had to go for it.
Sweet potato casserole:
I was rather particular on the recipe I was going to use for my sweet potato casserole. It’s my favorite part of Thanksgiving. I could eat a well made sweet potato casserole for
days weeks months. Anyhow, I’m a big fan of using candied pecans in place of marshmallows. Don’t get me wrong, I love a couple dandies in my hot cocoa every now and then, that’s about the only time I eat them though. They just taste like pure sugar to me. Fat Free Vegan’s recipe totally hit the spot. This is a recipe i’ll make in later winter months even after Thanksgiving is long gone.
Caramel Apple Pie:
My pie recipe comes from the lunchboxbunch’s blog. I’ve made this pie before and it’s always a hit. Actually, anything I make from her recipe index is always a hit. That woman knows what she’s doing in the kitchen!
And of course who can forget about leftovers!
I had quite a few leftover meals but this is the only one I photographed. It’s just ezekiel bread with (from bottom up) Veganaise, leftover Tofurky, fresh spinach, my favorite dill and herb cashew cheese, and another slice of bread. So good.
