Vegan Thanksgiving Potluck

14 Nov

Thanksgiving… rich and decadent foods, full tummies, great laughs, and good company.  For most vegans, however, we may not get to indulge in all the foods when with our families.  Thus, our local vegetarian/vegan group had a 100% vegan meal with traditional foods.  We were a total of 10 people and all brought different foods, which we planned earlier this week.

My contribution:  a Tofurky roast with potatoes, carrots, onions, and fennel with a basting of soy sauce, agave nectar, maple syrup, walnut and sesame oil, as well as rosemary, sage, cumin, salt and pepper.

“Three sisters” salad:  corn, lima beans, and zucchini with tomatoes, dill, cilantro, salt, pepper, olive oil, apple cider and red wine vinegars.

Roasted red pepper hummus and chips.

Butternut Squash soup.

Pasta salad with broccoli, olives, beans, corn, and tomatoes.

Creamy mashed sweet potatoes

Cranberry relish with crystallized ginger and orange zest.

Stuffing with three different mushrooms.

Homemade vegan gravy

Vegan cheesecake with apples and pecans.

My plated butternut squash soup.

The beautiful and satisfying entree!

Desserts!  Cheesecake, chocolate cake, and sweet potato pie.
