Vegan option

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?

    Yes and it’s new for us. This year we are trying to determine if my son and husband have wheat or dairy allergies so we have been trying to avoid those, but sometimes having just one to see the effects of them. It has been pretty crazy, but I think we’re almost done.
