Our Vegan Thanksgiving
Yum! We had spicy mashed sweet potatoes with cilantro and coconut milk, stuffing, a Gardein Stuffed Turk'y, and two kinds of gravy. There was also pie, cookies, and Silk Nog for later. This was our first experience with the Garden Turk'y, in the past I've had Tofurky (hate it!) and we've also made main dishes from scratch. But everything we've had from Gardein has been delicious so we thought we'd give the turk'y a try. And I'm glad we did, it wasn't quite as awesome as I was hoping, but it was pretty darned good. My complaints are with the stuffing and gravy that it comes with. The turk'y is breaded and stuffed, the stuffing tastes really good but the texture turned me off, it was much too mushy. The gravy was just gross, it tasted a lot like I remember turkey tasting like (and no, that's not a good thing) and I'm glad we had a backup gravy for the meal. Overall, I'd have it again but skip the gravy it comes with and make sure I had my own stuffing to serve on the side. Because really, Thanksgiving for me is ALL ABOUT THE STUFFING!
So what's your favorite part of yourThanksgiving meal?
