Thanksgiving Recap 2015

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm popping in today with a quick recap of what we feasted on at my family's holiday meal (and what I ended up making from my Thanksgiving recipe round up). 

Breakfast:

Appetizers:

  • Kale Chips
  • Cheese Platter with Fresh Fruit and Veggies
  • Shrimp Cocktail

The Meal:

  • Crowd-Pleasing Vegan Kale Caesar Salad - I didn’t make the chickpea croutons the recipe calls for, and instead tossed in some extra shredded roasted Brussels sprouts. YUM! 
  • Roasted Root Vegetable Ribbons (beets, parsnips, rutabaga)
  • Saweet Potato Casserole with Crunchy Nut Crumble - I made this last year and it was a huge hit again this year! 
  • Baked Sweet Potatoes
  • Sautéed Green Beans with Slivered Almonds
  • Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts
  • “Cheezy” Purple Cauliflower (roasted with olive oil and nutritional yeast)
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Regular and Gluten-free Stuffing
  • Herb Rubbed Turkey

The Treats:

  • Chocolate Covered Stuffed Dates - I made these stuffed with sunflower seed butter and covered them with extra Superfood Chocolate - so decadent! 
  • Superfood Chocolate (recipe in my November newsletter)
  • Assorted Cookies
  • Gluten-Free Apple Cake
  • Traditional Apple Pie
  • Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie
  • Grape and Olive Oil Cake
  • Homemade Whipped Cream


WOW! As always, this meal was a team effort - everyone from my family contributed something homemade and delicious, which makes it all the more special. I’m incredibly grateful that we have so many vibrant veggie sides at our meal - I never feel like I’m missing out because I don’t eat meat! 

And now, off to eat some more leftovers! What was your favorite dish this year??
