For those of you that are celebrating minus the meat this Thanksgiving, here are some great alternatives!:

1. Eggplant Parmesan, Salad and Green Beans with Pumpkin Pie

2. TOFURKEY Turkey (OF COURSE!) with Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole and Pecan Pie

3. Veggie Loaf with Vegan Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Corn and Sweet Cherry Pie

4. Jambalaya made with Tofurkey Sausage (which is the BOMB), a side of Corn Bread and Peach Cobbler

5. Lentils and Mashed Potatoes (scrumptious!) and Strawberry/Rhubarb Pie

Have a beautiful Thanksgiving and thanks for saving the Turkeys! Gobble Gobble!

Thanksgiving Cheer in a Bowl: Two-Ingredient Pumpkin Dip

by Ashley Morgan

The holiday season is rapidly approaching and what better gourd than the almighty pumpkin to represent your holiday spirit. Unexpected visitors pop up constantly this time of year. Instead of stressing, keep these two ingredients in your cupboard to ensure a great time no matter when they drop by: pre-mixed pumpkin pie filling and vegan cream cheese. Both are great by themselves, however mixed 25/75 (25% cream cheese and 75% pumpkin pie filling), they are absolutely divine.

The dip can be paired with ginger snaps, crackers or even lentil chips (as I have done). Forgo the holiday stress and enjoy your friendly visits with a dip good enough to impress your mother-in-law. Just don’t tell her how simple it was to make!

Two-Ingredient Pumpkin Dip

¼ cup vegan cream cheese

¾ cup pre-mixed pumpkin pie filling

Mix by hand or with mixer until fully incorporated. Serve chilled.
