|Gardein Holiday Roast & Gravy with sweet potato|
casserole (made with vegan marshmallows), roasted
vegetables, green beans, and cranberry sauce.
I was pleased that we were welcomed with open arms and not ridiculed or criticized for our choice of a vegan alternative to the traditional turkey and dressing. My brother-in-law and a couple of other family guests even tried a bit of the Gardein Holiday Roast and were as amazed as we were that the texture and taste were so similar to turkey. We were able to share information about things like vegan wines and how to make simple changes to recipes, such as replacing dairy and eggs with other ingredients to make the delicious "from scratch" cake we enjoyed for dessert.
Joy would agree -- our first vegan Thanksgiving was a success. Everyone enjoyed their meal -- vegans and non-vegans alike -- and we all got along despite our differences. Truly a good time and great food were had by all!
