A VEGAN THANKSGIVING – PART TWO

by Miss Bliss

Are you vegetarian and planning on hosting a holiday meal for meat-eaters? You may be wondering what you can possibly serve that will please both veggies and non-veggies. Well, thanks to the creative and talented chef, Nava Atlas, creating memorable vegan meals just became easier.

Today’s recipes are from the wonderful site, IN A VEGETARIAN KITCHEN WITH NAVA ATLAS.  Ms. Atlas has written numerous vegetarian cookbooks and I highly recommend purchasing her fabulous book, Vegetarian Celebrations.

JICAMA COLESLAW WITH CITRUS DRESSING
8 to 10 servings

Jicama is a slightly sweet crunchy root vegetable. Ask for it at well stocked supermarkets and produce stands. If you can’t find it, substitute crisp white turnip.

BUTTERNUT SQUASH WITH WHOLE WHEAT, WILD RICE, & ONION STUFFING (VEGAN)
Serves: 8

Even those of us who have given up turkey welcome a Thanksgiving dish that has been “stuffed.” This satisfying dish makes a handsome centerpiece for the holiday meal.

WALNUT-APPLE STUFFING (VEGAN)
Serves: 8 or more

Vegetarians won’t want to eat stuffing that has been cooked in the bird. Here’s a tasty stuffing that bakes separately.

WINE-GLAZED BRUSSELS SPROUTS (VEGAN – if you use maple syrup instead of honey)
Serves: 8

The slightly sweet glaze makes Brussels sprouts taste deceptively rich.

MAPLE AND TARRAGON SWEET POTATOES (VEGAN)
8 to 10 servings

Maple syrup and tarragon, a sweet herb, are wonderful enhancements for the flavor of sweet potatoes.

Next week, I will be highlighting the best vegan holiday desserts on the web.  You do not want to miss these goodies that will leave meat-eaters saying, “This can’t be vegan!”
