Thanksgiving is just around the corner. It’s an excellent day to gather with friends and family to enjoy each others company, play board games, and eat a big home cooked meal.
I’m not big on going overboard on the holidays with a huge meal that takes 3 days to prepare. I want to sit on the couch to watch the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Turkey Day marathon while my partner cooks and then we continue to sit on the couch with George.
So here are some vegan Thanksgiving ideas for people who want an easier day to enjoy.
But a Tofurky roast or a Field Roast. Channel your inner Ron Popeil and set it and forget it.
Our preferred green bean casserole is the one from Campbell’s soup. Classic! Double the fried onions. Paul makes a big batch of the cream of mushroom soup from Cookin’ Crunk in advance and we freeze some for later casserole. This does require some advance work, but it is well worth it and easy to make day of.
A big bag of Pepperidge Farms stuffing will last through the holiday season. Stuffing in a bag! Yes!
I’m not making these this year, but if you want to really go all out with some homemade bread, these are the rolls. I-40 Vegan knows what’s what.
We always have a pile of roasted vegetables and this crispy cabbage recipe from Cadry’s Kitchen looks like a nice addition to those. Toss in some easy roasted Brussels sprouts from Dianne’s vegan kitchen, too. Remember, roasting is your friend. Set it and forget it!
Finish it all off with an easy pumpkin cheesecake pie from Joni at Just the Food. Make a day in advance and eat the night before.
Vegan Thanksgiving! Fast and delicious.
