One of the most daunting things for me as a new vegan was cooking for the Holidays. I was still learning about how to cook for myself, and always braced for impact when I'd be invited over for meals at friends houses. I didn't really know how to explain my new lifestyle to them, or how to make sure that I brought dishes that not only tasted good to me, but to everyone else as well.
Well, turns out it's not that hard. All of the recipes included in this vegan Thanksgiving recipe roundup are guaranteed to make a great impression on your friends and family, or whomever you choose to spend the holiday with. I've tried every single recipe listed, and I promise you won't be disappointed!
I collaborated with my friend Megan who runs the AMAZING blog, Carrots & Flowers to make an all vegan, all delicious thanksgiving feast. She took over the savory dishes and I brought the world's cutest little personal pies. You can make each of these recipes and serve as a full course dinner, or pick and choose your favorites to round out your table with some amazing (& plant-based) food!
Also, can we take a minute to talk about how rad it is that I have friends who invite me over to cook and photograph food with them? Someone go find 15-year-old Josie and tell her that life is gonna turn out alright after all.
I don't talk a lot about my my veganism (lol, besides all the recipes) on my blog, and I've never felt like it was the right time to really share my journey here on Sugar & Satire. I'm still not totally ready, but what I do want to share is how incredibly thankful I am to have found a diet/lifestyle that works so well for me. I'm thankful to the community that I've found, the people I've met and the fact that my passion for baking has been reignited in the last two years that I've been plant-based. I fallen back in love with food, and my body has never felt better.
