With the holiday season fast upon us–we, as conscious beings, want to participate in the festivities and merry-making and yet, trying to imitate long-held food traditions, albeit “vegan-style” can feel, well, a little regressive in light of everything we now know.
I have nothing against Tofurkey or Gardein or various seitan roasts. And of course there’s the “Festival of Sides” as I like to call it. The “best of” parade of veggies, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy and breads I have prepared and proudly brought to table over the years.
But, if you want to try something really courageous, really unconventional– how about a theme menu? One that breaks the rules completely?
*Here are a few of my favorite vegan menus for alternative holiday (or anyday) celebrating:
Soul Food Feast
Sweet Potato Pie
Fresh Baguette or Focaccia
Cinnamon-Chai Rice Pudding
Mango or Coconut Ice Cream with Mango-Ginger Coulis
Creamy Almond Pudding
