vegan thanksgiving recipe roundup.

I've been experimenting with some different recipes in the last few weeks to figure out what we'll contribute to the Height family Thanksgiving dinner this year. Here's a sneak peek at a Vegan Pumpkin Pie (with grain-free, gluten-free, insane-o delicious crust!) I've been working on. Recipe coming soon. ;) In the meantime, please hit that link to vote for it over on Tribest's website (I'd so appreciate it!).

In my digging through old favorites, I found a selection of simple, nourishing, really yummy options -- and decided to share (just in case you, too, are trying to put together a gluten-free, vegan, low-sugar, no-meat, dairy-free, no-turkeys-were-harmed-in-the-making-of... menu for the holiday.) 

The best part? Everything is turkey-approved.

So, here you go! Some ideas to think about when putting together your friendly-for-every-guest's-dietary-preferences menu. Some of them are adaptations of traditional favorites, while others are a little untraditional, but use deliciously autumnal, harvest-time ingredients. My favorite? The Carrot Pumpkin Bites.


Curried Butternut Squash Soup
Lentil Apricot Tapenade
Acorn Squash Hummus 


Roasted Veggies with Cornichon Caper Herb Drizzle
