Happy Wednesday Foxy People!
The holiday season is approaching so fast! I know you usually see my Foodie Friday posts, but this week I wanted to ensure that I equipped everyone with some of my top items and go to recipes for a great, veggie friendly Thanksgiving. This will hopefully give you time to plan your menu!
Top 3 Thanksgiving Turkey Substitutes
Great news! All of these below options are Vegan.
Gardein Turk’y Meatless Cutlets
This product I enjoy thoroughly throughout the fall. I hope they start having this year round because it is so good! It is a pre-breaded cutlet that you can bake and pair with your favorite gravy. This is a soy based product and is made with organic ancient grain flour (KAMUT® khorasan wheat, amaranth, millet, quinoa) and potato starch.Check out this link for ingredient details.
Quorn Chik’n Cutlets
I was drawn to this product simply because of the name lol. I ended up liking this item because of it’s texture. If you don’t want a soy based product, you may want to give this one a try. It is made from Mycoprotein, Potato protein, and Pea fiber. I like to cook this product in Vegetable broth. It absorbs those flavors very well.Check out this link for ingredient details.
Gardein Holiday Roast
I haven’t had a chance to try this option, but I’ve been wanting to for years! It’s finally available in the Dallas area, so I’m going to give it a try. This is a soy based product as well and is made with organic ancient grain flour (KAMUT® khorasan wheat, amaranth, millet, quinoa) and potato starch. Want to try it with me? It is basically formed like a roast and it has a stuffing mix in the middle.Check out this link for ingredient details.
Top 3 Thanksgiving Sides
Cornbread DressingFollow your traditional recipe for baking cornbread. You can swap out some of the dairy products with vegan buttery spread and unsweetened almond milk to make it Vegan friendly. Once it is baked and cooled, add in some fresh rosemary chopped, some sauteed onions and bell peppers, vegetable broth, salt, black pepper, thyme, and a lot of sage! lol. I just love that seasoning during the holidays. Mix this well and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes on 350 degrees or until it is firm and golden at the top.
Mashed PotatoesIt’s all the same process you usually use for mashed potatoes. You just have to make Vegan friendly option. How? Simple, instead of using milk or cream, swap out the ingredients with unsweetened almond milk. Instead of using butter, swap it out with a vegan buttery spread like Earth Balance original spread or extra virgin olive oil. If you’re okay with keeping it Vegetarian friendly, add in a tablespoon of olive oil mayo and some cheese for extra creaminess.
Sauteed KaleThis is the most easy recipe of them all! All you need is a few bunches of kale, sweet onion, extra virgin olive oil, black pepper, red pepper flake, and salt. Saute them all in a skillet until the kale is withered and the onions are a golden brown color.
