With only a few weeks till Thanksgiving, our thoughts turn to food, family, and friends…and food! Truly, there IS no bigger food holiday than Thanksgiving–and no better time to invite compassion to the table. Traditions may be difficult to challenge, but this holiday provides us with a wonderful opportunity to share a meal that can be made fully, or in part, without animal products. Whether you use simple substitutions to transform familiar favorites or introduce an exciting new entrée made with unfamiliar ingredients, when it’s made with love, everyone will dig in.
If the conversation turns to turkeys, and why the humane choice is to leave them off the table, you can inform the conversation with some important facts by reading this post about our beautiful and intelligent feathered friends.
This year, Chef Sara and I have each created a holiday menu to showcase some of our favorite recipes. This week, we invite you to explore Chef Sara’s menu: next week, I’ll share mine. And whether you’re hosting–or bringing a dish, we hope you’ll consider compassion as the first ingredient and use the opportunity to demonstrate just how delicious it is to be vegan!
Thank you for reading this blog, for your curiosity about vegan cooking, and for your willingness to create compassionate meals…for yourself and for others. For that, we are all deeply grateful.
