The lentils are delicious when served without the pumpkin, too. Adapted from 365 Ways to Cook Vegetarian. Plan on one “Jack Be Little” or other miniature pumpkin per person.

Here is one that is always a stand-by for any holiday gathering–usually Thanksgiving. It is great as a main dish or as a side dish.
Ok, this turned out to be the most popular dish at out Thanksgiving dinner. I completely made it up as I went along, so I was scared to death. Here’s the quick (non measured, sorry!)
This was the best vegan stuffing I’ve ever tasted. Even the meat eaters loved it and commented that the mushroom gave it a wonderful texture. I adapted this recipe from one I found somewhere on the internet. I wasn’t exact on the spice measurements (meaning I didn’t level off the top of the measuring spoon).
Give plain cranberry sauce a rest this year. Instead, try out our jazzed-up version, chock-full of apricots, with a hint of orange.
1 15oz can Pumpkin
1 1/2 c Soy Milk
1T. Maple Syrup or Agave Nectar…
Process all ingredients in a food processor until desired consistancy is reached. That is, if you like pure, smooth cranberry sauce, or like chunky cranberry sauce. Enjoi!
Chill in the fridge or freezer before serving. And enjoy!!!
Here is another one I use at holidays–it always looks impressive with the colors from the fruit and herbs (do use fresh mint if you can–dried is not the same!) I think I adapted it from one of Mollie Katzen’s cookbooks. This salad keeps very well, and is great to have on hand for lunches and snacks.
This makes lots- enough to share and is wonderful.
This is a slightly modernized version of an old Kentucky recipe for plain corn bread. Eat it as a hot bread, or leave it for a few days and use it for the stuffing.
Easy, delicious, and nutritious.
Make your own vegan Irish sausages this St. Patrick’s Day, and add them to this delicious stew. It’s simple, home-style cooking but absolutely delicious–hot and filling and the very definition of “comfort food.”
This was my favorite dish for the Thanksgiving meal and there wasn’t a scrap left!
This side dish is a must at holiday dinners.
- Oil-Free Baked Portobello FriesDo you know why vegan cooks are so creative? I think it’s because we’re constantly being tempted by interesting dishes on restaurant menus that are “vegan except for.” You know, the chickpea appetizer that is vegan–except for chicken broth. Or the hash browns that are vegan–except they’re cooked on a griddle alongside bacon. Or the portobello fries […]
- Aqua Fava Carob Pieces (Vegan, Gluten and Oil Free)Though I’ve gotten a lot less fussy (or maybe lazy) in my cooking habits, from time to time I still can’t resist my proclivity for vegan adaptations of things I know I should never eat in their original form. This experiment is that a couple times over, since most of you can eat a few […]
