I hope everyone had a very wonderful cruelty-free vegan Thanksgiving! Dennis and I usually have a bunch of friends over for a big vegan potluck every Thanksgiving, but this year we decided to skip it and have a cozy dinner for two. I’ve had so much going on lately, that I treated myself to a much needed break from event planning and socializing. It turned out to be a wonderfully relaxing and delicious day!
As usual, we got our “turkey” from our local Veggie Heaven restaurant, and I cooked a few side dishes to go along with it. All of the dishes I cooked this year are from Nava Atlas’s fantastic new book Vegan Holiday Kitchen, and they were all quick and easy to make and absolutely delicious.
I also made Sweet Potato Biscuits to round out our meal.
And here’s my plate! Starting at the top – Veggie Heaven’s tofu “turkey”, sweet potatoes, stuffing, Brussels sprouts, a Veggie Heaven “drumstick” and a sweet potato biscuit. I took this picture before I doused everything with a huge ladle-full of Tofurky gravy.
And for dessert we had Pumpkin Cheesecake with a Hint of Chocolate, which was absolutely heavenly!
