Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup!

[Chocolate Pumpkin Pôts de Crèmel

Have you been keeping up with Vegan MoFo?  Now that I’ve backed out  of the festivities because I knew I couldn’t keep up–well, here I am, posting virtually every day in October thus far!  With our Ontario elections today (go out and vote, people!) and our Thanksgiving coming up (stay home and eat, people!), I’m pretty sure this bombarding-you-with-a-blog-post-a-day foolishness will come to an end asap (though don’t forget to come back tonight for this week’s Wellness Weekend, of course!) 😉

In any case, I couldn’t let the weekend arrive without offering my picks for Thanksgiving-appropriate recipes for the big weekend.  My own feast menu is almost crystallized, but sadly, I won’t get the recipes posted until after the holiday–but hey, you can always use those for the next celebration (and believe me, you will want to save that dessert recipe for just that purpose.  Swoon.).

For those of you who haven’t yet finalized all your dishes, welcome to my world  here are some suggestions for what might work at your Thanksgiving table.  And don’t forget there are more anti-candida friendly recipes in my Anti-Candida Feast ebook (specifically holiday-themed), Desserts without Compromise and Good Morning! Breakfasts.  🙂

And to all my Canadian brethren, hope you have a fantastic long weekend. And if you’ve got a favorite Thanksgiving recipe to share, please leave a link in the comments section!

Happy Thanksgiving, all!

  1. Wow, what a great list of recipes! It’s so nice to have Canadian resources who post Thanksgiving recipes at the right time for me!
    I’ve had a lot of fun posting Thanksgiving recipes on my blog this week too (feel free to check them out too!)

    Happy Thanksgiving 🙂

  2. Oh Canada, I miss celebrating thanksgiving an appropriate distance away from Christmas. Because my house is in Candia, NH we sometimes do Can(eh)dian Thanksgiving as a celebration between Canadian and American Thanksgiving. Speaking of which, I really need to perfect my vegan french canadian meat pie.

  3. That’s one awesome round-up. You’re making me wish that I was hosting Thanksgiving this year just so I can make a bunch of these recipes. Can’t wait to hear about what you’ll be serving.

    • I’m keeping my fingers crossed that my elaborate main dish works out! But the dessert has already been tested and got 5 stars from the HH. 🙂

  4. Thanksgiving seems like such a lovely holiday, shame we don’t have it in the UK. Love the roundup, thanks for reminding me of all the recipes I want to make! Next on the list is the Blissful chef’s red lentil paté..

  5. Ok, so there’s my favorite dish of ALL TIME Tempeh “Bourguignon”!! I’ve posted about it so many times it looks like I’m a stalker. :O) I’m mad about it! Now that it’s fall, even here in SC, I’m ready to make it again. This will be a perfect dish for this weekend while I’m watching football!

    • Andrea, thank you so much! Did I know that you posted about it? If I haven’t commented, please leave a link so that I can go see your post and say thanks over there, too! 😀

  6. Maybe the secret to doing mofo is to decide not to do it. It’s thinking about it that can drive you crazy. And reading and commenting on so many posts.

    You should do a repeat post on the sweet potato frosting — that was a brilliant creation, and one that lets me make what looks and tastes like butter cream frosting without all the sugar and fat.

    • Ha ha–that’s true (I do tend to be an “over-thinker.”). 😉 I’ve got another recipe that uses the frosting coming up. . . so you will see it again soon! 🙂

  7. Happy Thanksgiving to you, HH and the girls!

  8. have a great thanksgiving – so much to celebrate coming up – we don’t have thanksgiving but we are in the midst of birthday season so I will be celebrating down under too

  9. Yay! We are so excited for this weekend. We even have a vegan, gluten free pumpkin pie up our sleeves. Hopefully this time it will work…last time it was more like a…crumble-ish baked thing.

  10. That’s a whole lot of recipes! My eyes were popping everywhere :p
    Congrats on being futured in the Huffington post!

  11. Umm, yes, so while that’s an amazing list of tasty recipes, my mind can’t shake that chocolate pumpkin pots de creme. That’s what I want. And I don’t even celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving. 🙂
