Note: I did not have any of this meal, so I can't attest to it from a meat eater's point of view, but Denise enjoied it and it fit right in with what everyone else was having.
Here's what I did for Thanksgiving:
Some years I am motivated and make stuff from scratch, other years I am lazy and use a lot of pre-packaged items and ingredients. This was a lazy year.
Follow directions on package of potatoes, roughly. I add together all the liquid amounts (water and milk) and use that amount of water. I bring the water to a boil with the bouillon, then dump in the flakes, remove from heat, and stir until smooth. Add any other seasonings desired, sometimes I use garlic. Very tasty!
Used a package of Hain brand chicken style gravy mix, available at HFS.
Bought a package of Tofurkey brand sliced lunch-meat style "Turkey"
Usually would bake up a fresh sweet potato; this year I cheated and bought a can of sweet potatoes.... Bruce's was the brand I think.
Easy enough to prepare fresh, or buy a can. Somewhere I have a recipe for a vegan version of the (southern) traditional Green Bean Casserole, but I've never tried it.
Stay away from Stove Top! Evil! I don't think they have any flavors that are veg. I usually buy herb seasoned cubes. Pepperidge Farm's are vegan (only the cubes...the more crumbled version is not). There is another brand I've seen that was vegan, can't remember right now. Read the labels, you can usually find something. If you like cornbread stuffing I think PFs is vegan. I don't really care for it though.
Use the package directions for proper ratio of stuffing mix to liquid. Here's what I do:
Chop up whichever of these you like:
Sautee these until mostly tender. Add to the proper amount of liquid, throw in veg bouillon, bring to a boil*. Dump in the stuffing mix, remove from heat. Mix well. Put into casserole dish and bake covered for 1/2 hour or more. Remove cover and bake for additional 15 minutes or however long it takes to get the top nice and crusty. Yummy!
*You could add some vegan margarine if you want it, I never do.
There are many recipes available on the 'net for vegan pumpkin pie. I've used several of them. My favorite so far is Tara's recipe, found at: Pumpkin Pie Recipe
The only thing I would change in it, I think, is to use a little less molasses. It's a little bit strong. I can't remember for sure, but I think the pie shell I used was by Mrs. Smiths. Check the ingredients...many (most) of them have lard, whey, or both. Pet Ritz and Pillsbury are both not vegan.
CHERRY OR APPLE PIE
Marie Callenders makes vegan fruit pies. Very tasty. Their pumpkin and pecan pies are not vegan though. Cherry and apple pies are both very easy to make homemade and vegan, although I was too lazy this year.
