Vegetarian thanksgiving

  1. 1. Vegetarian Thanksgiving Thanksgiving, whether observed among vegetarians or non-vegetarians, is a chefs recipes annual opportunity for friends and easy cooking videos family to come together and celebrate the holiday. What was once a feast of in the early days of the American colonies has become a season for sharing and giving thanks for one’s blessings? Throughout the United States, dinner tables overflow with food that has become traditional fare for the season. Think Thanksgiving and images of a giant roast stuffed turkey replete with sidings comes to mind not to mention cranberrysauce, buttered yams and pumpkin pie. Needless to say, the star of the feast is theturkey carved by the head of the family and shared. No time of year could probablybe as challenging for vegetarians if they come home to a family of carnivores. With a little resourcefulness and a lot of creativity, a festive Thanksgiving feastcan be prepared that is devoid of turkey and any other meat product. Try outrecipes from warm casseroles, stuffed autumn vegetables to wild rice dishes. Try outa vegan tourtiere as your centrepiece. The result could very well be a fantasticspread guaranteed to impress even the meat eaters. The Thanksgiving inspiration for these items come from the play of ingredientsand the use of the autumn season’s flavors and spices, Cranberries, chestnuts,squash, wild rice, apples, aromatic herbs, sweet and savory spices all contribute tothe overall flavor profile of the dishes in the menu so you don’t even realise thatthere’s no turkey at all! For those who still want the semblance of a bird, there’s vegemeat ortexturized vegetable protein which a lot of manufacturers are able to mimic specificmeats and meat cuts. Prepare it the same was as your favourite meat and flavor itwith appropriate herbs and spices and serve with festive side dishes. Tourtiere is a festive dish usually composed of finely diced port, veal and beefwith the addition of wild game to enhance the taste. It originated from Quebec inCanada but is served in the United States as well, with modifications in the mainingredient: fish in coastal areas or game in regions inland. We provide a lighter butstill satisfying vegan version with beans, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms and chestnuts.The last ingredient provides the Thanksgiving feel to the dish as well as the use ofground cloves.
