Vegan.com is pleased to bring you a scrumptious vegan Thanksgiving feast from Robin Robertson, one of America’s bestselling vegetarian cookbook authors. Robin has sold well over 100,000 vegan cookbooks, and her creations are consistently fantastic. Here’s a collection of holiday recipes you can be proud to serve to your family.
My 2009 Thanksgiving menu features several recipes from my latest book, 1,000 Vegan Recipes. Seitan is the main course, but instead of a large roast as in years past, I’ve opted for individual portions of pastry-wrapped stuffed seitan slices served with a luscious Madeira sauce. (For a gluten-free main-dish, you can make the rice-stuffed winter squash instead of the seitan.)
Accompaniments from the pages of 1,000 Vegan Recipes include Rum-Spiked Sweet Potatoes with Pomegranate Pecans and a dazzling Triple Cranberry Relish. I like to serve this dinner plated individually (instead of served family-style) for a more elegant presentation, with the seitan parcel nestled against a mound of garlic smashers (our favorite mashed potatoes dish), topped with Madeira sauce, and accented with roasted asparagus spears. With all that food, I won’t be serving a soup this year, but of course, we’ll save room for pumpkin cheesecake, which is a Thanksgiving dessert tradition in my house.
