Thanksgiving is a time for togetherness... it's an occasion to be spent in the warm and loving company of family, loved ones and friends enjoying turkey roast and pumpkin pies with them. Thanksgiving is also an opportunity to renew the ties that bind us with the ones we love... it is a time for remembering, cherishing and being thankful for all the good things you have been blessed with. So it's time to say 'Happy Thanksgiving'

Vegan Thanksgiving

Send this Ecard

Can you think of anything beyond turkey on Thanksgiving? Well last year I went to my aunt Mary's place who's strictly vegetarian. First I didn't want to go because there won't be a 'real turkey' -- and what's a thanksgiving without a turkey? But I went, and to my surprise it was acutally a yummy and fun thanksgiving that I'll always remember.
She had cooked Tofurky -- Tofu-turkey. It's easy to cook. About an hour in the oven stuffed tofu with boiled veggies and dipped in tangy orange sauce and it felt good in the mouth. The gravy was outstanding! With many people going veggie, there are loads of vegan recipes to cook now. There are lip-smacking recipes for all the four meals.
Veggie meals can consist of egg free breakfast scramble, potato salad, mac n cheese, with onion dip or nacho cheese dip as snacks. No meal is complete without the dessert and the drinks. In the dessert one can have a preference of chocolate pudding, tofu pie, nutty fudge balls, and chocolate “ wacky” cake. The drinks can be served with your favorite glassware. Serve the guests with chocolate banana milk-shake, tropical fruit smoothy, hot cocoa, or egg free nog. The bandwagon includes even top class celebrities who want to celebrate thanksgiving in a vegetarian way. Celebrities like Paris Hilton, Shania Twain, Bob Dylan, Alec Baldwin, Kim Basinger, Victoria Beckham, Paul McCartney... the list goes on. The world is going veggie after all. Then what will happen to the turkeys??? Don't worry there are always two sides to everything!!! Including turkey wings, legs.... hmmmm

Hey Sean, thanks for stopping by Some Lies. My ex-wife is a vegetarian. I used to love Christmas time (being a British we didn't really ceelbrate Thanksgiving like you guys). She'd make all this great veggie food. I loved stealing some to have my more traditional meal. Amazing what great food you can make if you put your mind to it!
