So, we chose to celebrate Thanksgiving with a dear friend of ours, who happens to be Vegan. We are not. We are a lot of things, but vegan isn’t one of them. We actually had a 20 pound turkey.
For our friend, my husband prepared very special food that she could eat, and more importantly, could enjoy!
I wanted to share this with you, in case you also need to come up with a vegan (also gluten-free) option for the upcoming celebrations.
First, he cut open a squash, scooped out the seeds, oiled it, and placed it face down on a pan to roast. He prepared the filling which was quinoa, kale, and baked tofu. Then stuffed the squash once it was done and put it back in to cook a little more.
To finish, he made a vegan mushroom gravy using a vegetable stock he made from scratch that morning.
Easy peasy and delicious!
Do you have multiple dietaries to cook for?
