A Vegan Thanksgiving

Posted by Kristin Doyle under Recipes, Resources

It’s easy to enjoy the holidays without loading up on excess saturated fat and cholesterol.

Here’s my plan:

First of all I must give credit to Chef Bryant Terry from Oakland, Ca,  author of Vegan Soul Kitchen for the recipes. Yum!

Menu:

Seitan Medallions with Mushroom Gravy

Mashed Potatoes with Cumin and Caramelized onions
