So you have seen the Forks Over Knives film and have decided to eat a more plant based diet. But now, with Thanksgiving on the way you feel a little distraught what do we eat for Thanksgiving.
So far we have talked about the Turkey (more to come on this later)…had a vegan pumpkin pie throwdown and made and veganized Alton Brown’s amazing green bean casserole. What more could you want! Oh I know…truly the best part of Thanksgiving is not the Turkey anyway, it is the…mashed potatoes and gravy!
The potatoes are easy you just make those like you always have but instead of butter use some nice plain soy milk and Earth Balance margarine, a little salt and you have perfection. It is very important that you use the plain milk, I tried vanilla once…just once!
Now for the gravy…
1/3 cup unbleached white flour
2 cups water
1/2 small onion, chopped
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons Braggs Liquid Aminos or low sodium soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon beef style seasoning
1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- Place flour in a dry small skillet; cook over medium heat until lightly browned, stirring constantly.
- Transfer flour and remaining ingredients to a blender; blend until smooth.
- Pour mixture into a medium saucepan; heat over medium until thick, stirring constantly to prevent lumps and burning.
We are almost done with Thanksgiving dinner I’ll be sharing more about the turkey and a wonderful fresh cranberry relish so keep checking in for more healthy follow up recipes to Forks Over Knives.
