Surviving Thanksgiving

So we’re a couple of weeks out from Thanksgiving here in the states and this will be my first as a vegan. It will be difficult. My mother’s dressing is amazing, but it also has turkey and turkey stock in it. The turkey itself is of course always the centerpiece of the Thanksgiving meal. Thanksgiving is probably the hardest holiday for a vegan–at least I think it will be for me.

All hope is not lost, however! There are vegan/vegetarian options for Thanksgiving, and I’ll be trying my hand at veganizing a few traditional Thanksgiving dishes. Last year I made an awesome vegan-friendly sweet potato casserole, and I shall be creating that again this year for my office’s Thanksgiving potluck at the end of this week. The fiancee is planning to make a curry bake–a less traditional Thanksgiving option for sure but still delicious.

Later this week I’ll post up the sweet potato casserole recipe and some pictures of it. In the meantime, what are some of your favorite vegan-friendly Thanksgiving dishes?

  1. I’m looking forward to the recipe and could you post the curry bake recipe too? The husband loves curry. 🙂 You haven’t convinced me to give up meat but you do inspire me to make healthier choices. 😀
