Thanksgiving was delicious. We had our Colorado extended family over, and made 5 pies, dressing, cranberry sauce, I roasted a tofurkey, mashed potatoes, homemade bread, chocolate cupcakes, and more. It was good. We had a vegan pecan, round 2, a vegan and non vegan pumpkin, a cherry, and a apple. All the vegan ones were pretty good and the pecan pie turned out much better this time.
Let’s Break it down.
The Tofurkey. It was quite good. I roasted it with some vegetables and ate it with some musroom gravy. Here is the recipe.
8 oz. mushrooms(Shiitake, Portobello, Brown, or White)
1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup white flour
2 tbsp oil
4 cups vegetable broth
1tbsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp black pepper
salt, to taste
1 pinch sage
Sauté the mushrooms in the 1 1/2 tbsp oil until brown and soft. While sautéing add 2c stock and flour heat over medium heat. Whisk vigorously to avoid the flour clumping. When mixed and boiling, add the other 2 c. broth. Stir until well mixed, then add salt, soy sauce, sage, and pepper. When thickened and clear of lumps, add mushrooms. Stir and serve.
Almond butter stuffed celery sticks and homemade bread.
and that is why I went running this morning.
