Have a Happy Vegetarian Thanksgiving!

No burger updates until next week, since I am busy preparing for my sister's arrival and baking our contributions to tomorrow's Thanksgiving feast...

But I thought I would share with you two of my favorite vegan holiday recipes. These are a couple years old but I am still using them again this year, because they are just so tried-and-true good.

From Vegetarian Times: Holiday Cashew Nut Roast
I dug through my archives and found a photo of this dish taken when I cooked it in 2008... don't mind my hawaiian potholder under the casserole dish, haha.

From NPR's "A Vegetarian Thanksgiving": Vegetarian Gravy
(scroll down to the bottom for the gravy recipe)
I've made this for meat-eaters who swore it was the best gravy they've ever tasted.

Anyone have a good recipe for dairy-free dinner rolls? That's my new challenge this year. I've bookmarked a few online, but if anyone has one that they personally enjoy, please share :)

Have a great holiday, eat lots of delicious vegetarian food!


  1. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! The recipe for the roast looks so yummy!

  2. I knew that cashew roast sounded fab when you mentioned it on my blog the other day. It looks so yummy!

  3. it is really amazing - i always add more cashews for extra protein, and it's the perfect vegan entrée! and non-vegetarians can enjoy it as a side too, which always appealed to me (I don't like the idea of bringing a whole tofurky over to my friend's place when I'd be the only one eating it)
