Traditional Thanksgiving sides are really easy to make vegan.
Butter == Earth Balance
Chicken stock == Vegetable stock OR there are vegetarian bouillon cubes that are meant to taste like chicken stock
Sausage == vegetarian sausage such as Lightlife Smart Sausage
Sour Cream == Tofutti Sour Cream (I use this for dip)
Marshmallows == Dandies (taste like store bought marshmallows) or Sweet and Sara marshmallows (taste more like homemade marshmallows)
*I will be putting glazed pecans on my sweet potatoes instead of
marshmallows. They're incredibly easy to make.
If there's anything that I left off the list, please feel free to leave a comment and I will do my best to get back to you with a veg*n substitute.
Here's a recipe for a delicious cranberry sauce that I made yesterday for my family's Thanksgiving.
APPLE CIDER CRANBERRY SAUCE
12 oz Cranberries
1 cup of Vegan Granulated Sugar
1 cup of Apple Cider
Clementine zest and approximately 1-2 tbsp Clementine juice
In a sauce pot over medium heat, combine a dash of clementine zest and juice, cider, and sugar. When the sugar is dissolved stir in the cranberries. You will know the sauce is done when all of the cranberries pop. It usually takes 10-12 minutes.
Stay tuned for my Thanksgiving round-up after the dinner.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
