There was an abundance of vegan foods made by my whole non-veg family. Sure beats those non-family country-club Boca Raton Thanksgivings with friends I had during college. And I mean that.
Ok the goods! My aunts and uncles made VEGAN pumpkins rolls, roasted Brussels sprouts, beets/squash combo, cranberry sauce, and my cousin Sam even got Tofutti ice cream! Whoo hoo!
I brought to the table:
Bourbon/maple/Earth-Balanced sweet potatoes (which I think you could probably get drunk off since I didn't cook down the alcohol, oops HELLO Cabin Fever Liquor) Maple butternut squash, roasted green beans, chocolate chip pumpkin muffins (yes, I will post that recipe asap) AND my new recipe Wild Rice stuffing with soy chorizo, brown rice bread and veggies. Recipe coming soon since I totally made it up the day before while drinking a bottle of wine. Once I recall everything I did, I'll post. BUT many people said it was their favorite dish! HELLO success! I didn't even notice the non-vegan foods.
There was also an abundance of fresh fruits, hummus, olives, nuts, crackers etc etc for nibbling. The whole family had a great time, and I think enough food and wine for days to come.
A part of the vegan goods at the table, which was separated toward the end by a block of butter so you know when you got to foods that were not veg-friendly, how cool is that!?
I would live off these pumpkin rolls if I could...
Now this is MY DADS PLATE! ALL VEGAN! He was so proud.
My bro and I
And really there is no Thanksgiving complete without a crazy Wednesday night before with friends
I hope all you lovely bloggies had an amazing, delicious, and love-filled holiday! (I promise those two recipes in my next post! Be ready because I think you'll all be swooning over my wild rice stuffing in Dec :)
