Turkey Free Thanksgiving

A Peaceful Vegan Thanksgiving

Despite the fact that I have been a vegan for many years, I have always had Thanksgiving with family members who insisted on the usual Thanksgiving fare, including turkey. While I never ate the turkey I always wanted to enjoy Thanksgiving without the turkey on the table. This Thanksgiving marks a special occasion for me, my first, real Turkey-free Thanksgiving!

This year I am excited to have my first peaceful Thanksgiving. I have been busy testing recipes and planning my Thanksgiving menu. I know I'm like a child in a candy store but for me this is an exciting occasion. I get to plan my own Thanksgiving meal and enjoy it with my husband and two children, and anyone else who wants to fly out to enjoy it with us ;-) All the recipes and Thanksgiving menu will be available on my website in mid-November.

I will have Thanksgiving recipes available for:

Cranberry relish
Yam Casserole
Mashed potatoes
Mock turkey
Pumpkin pie
Apple pie
Chocolate desserts
and many other recipe favorites for Thanksgiving.

If you want an Un-Turkey for your Thanksgiving and Christmas Celebrations here are a few suggestions:

Tofurkey: This can be found at your local Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Good Earth or other natural food store. It comes with delicious stuffing and it is a great main course for your holiday meal.

Field Roast Celebration Roast: This roast has a delicious, rich flavor and is filled with a delicious wild rice stuffing. For more information visit

Tofu Turkey: This tofu turkey has won awards and praises from PETA.

If you are adventurous and want to make your own Un-Turkey this Thanksgiving, Please continue to check the website for updates on Thanksgiving menus and recipe collections.
