The holidays are a little hectic for us, because we usually have to bring an entire meal for ourselves, plus some stuff to share. Which is fine, I just have to plan! We're going to three meals this year so I've got a lot of prep to do! Here are a few things I'm going to try this year!
But check it out here. It is SO GOOD! Pretty much the same as the celebration roast, with cranberry in the middle and wrapped in a puff pastry! Fellow vegans or friends serving vegetarians, this is a GOOD roast to get! It is a little expensive, but it is big and very delicious.
Lightened Up Corn Casserole: I wasn't really looking for a "healthy" vegan corn casserole, but this one sounds really good, so I'm going to give it a try!
Voluptuous Pumpkin Pie: The Post Punk Kitchen is my go to vegan blog for recipes. Every single thing I've tried has turned out AMAZING. So when her pumpkin pie came up in my search it was a no brainer. I'm going to make the crust from "The Joy of Vegan Baking" because I've made it before and it's really delicious. We'll see if this pie makes it uncut to Thanksgiving. It might have to be taken to the celebration we're going to on Wednesday night.
The Best Sugar Cookies: I have made these a BUNCH of times and they are SO GOOD! I was a sugar cookie fiend before going vegan, and I actually like these BETTER than my old standby Martha Stewart recipe. I think it is the coconut oil in them, and how light they are. I'm going to make them pumpkin shaped I guess, with some orange icing! Yum! I'll be making them a BUNCH of times before Christmas!
Stuffed Thanksgiving Burgers: If we were staying home for the holiday I would probably be making these. We tried them last week and they are AMAZING. They are even good just as a patty with some sides. Another recipe I'll probably make a few more times before Christmas!
I hope everyone has a good day tomorrow if you celebrate! I know it can be a stressful day! We usually stay in town, but my cousin had a baby just a few weeks ago so we're trekking to Alabama to bring Thanksgiving to them!
