Thanksgiving: the time of year when get dressed up to eat in our living rooms and calories don’t count.
When we hear “Thanksgiving” we think of 20 pound turkeys roasting in the oven. To some that sounds amazing, but to vegans…not so much. Luckily, there are so many delicious plant-based Thanksgiving options available to buy in supermarkets, or easy recipes that can be found online.
This year for Thanksgiving I bought my all-time favorite Gardein product. It’s a stuffed Turk’y Holiday Roast. To be honest, I don’t really remember what real turkey actually tastes like, so I can’t properly compare the flavor of this roast to the real thing. However, I CAN say that this roast is gooooood. This roast even comes with packets of vegan gravy, which tastes identical to real gravy.
Also on my plate this year is vegan stuffing that I purchased from a local vegan bakery called Papa Ganache. If you remember my birthday cake post, it’s the same bakery. This stuffing was outrageously delicious. My favorite part was the chunks of everything-seasoned croissant pieces they included in the stuffing. If you don’t have a vegan bakery near you serving savory items like Papa Ganache, there are plenty of vegan stuffing recipes online, or accidentally vegan stuffing mixes in stores!
My Aunt made a homemade cranberry sauce that happened to be vegan! It was just cranberries, orange juice, and sugar. Very sweet and tangy, and the perfect little side to dip some roast and stuffing in.
And lastly, a good ol’ fashioned baked potato. I topped the potato with some salt and Country Crock brand butter. I also decided to pour some gravy on top of the potato. 10/10.
Happy Vegan Thanksgiving!!!
