Thanksgiving in America can be difficult for living foodists to enjoy, since traditional family gatherings center so heavily around overeating, cooking, and animal cruelty. This recipe guide is intended to bridge the gap between a standard Thanksgiving dinner and a modern living foods lifestyle by reinventing familiar recipes with 100% plant-based living ingredients.
The first course is a hearty Brown Bread, which can be paired with a simple olive oil herb dressing, or enjoyed with a store-bought cultured raw vegan butter. The bread is formed into dinner rolls and decorated with nuts and seeds to make a textured, flavorful, grain-free and gluten-free alternative to baked wheat bread.
The next set of courses bring simple fall vegetables to life by with gentle spices and herbs. The Herbed Cauliflower is incredibly full of flavor, the Green Bean Casserole modernizes a 1950s-era canned food classic, and the Mashed Notatoes with Gravy uses zucchini to create a light, fluffy version of the ultimate “stick to your ribs” comfort food.
What Thanksgiving feast would be complete without the main course? Turkey and Stuffing is an artistically designed sculpture, bursting with poultry spices, and creating a playful and filling centerpiece that will fill the kitchen with mouth-watering aromas.
The final dessert course is almost indistinguishable from the cooked versions of Apple Pie and Sweet Potato Pie. Nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and vanilla create the memorable flavors of these American classics.
