I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I cooked this year for a small family gathering. I’ve done this a few times before, and I usually try to make fall-inspired foods that are relatively reminiscent of a traditional Thanksgiving meal. But this year I decided to do something a little different – Soul Food! I figure it’s still on theme because Soul Food is real American food. Right? Right.
So, without further ado,My Thanksgiving menu!
Hottie Black-Eyed Peas and Greens - Appetite for ReductionBBQ Tofu
Crisp Green Beans with Roasted Shallots and Pecans – Vegan Soul Kitchen
Candied Sweet Potato Discs and Apple Slices – Vegan Soul Kitchen
Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins
Maple Pecan Pie – PPK, with homemade Pumpkin Ice Cream
So how did it turn out? Awesome! The two recipes from Vegan Soul Kitchen were really amazing, BTW. If you have the book I highly recommend you give them a try.
And Isa’s Maple Pecan Pie? Freaking fantastic. This pie is made with caramelized sugars which add an amazing depth of flavor and not-over-the-top sweetness.
All in all, it was a great Thanksgiving!
