Thanksgiving is obviously a food-centric holiday, and this year it was a perfect opportunity to experiment with making some delicious unprocessed plant-based dishes to replace some of the typical butter-laden and high fat foods that we all typically eat on this holiday. We had Thanksgiving dinner this year at my parents house with most of the family, all of whom are either fully on the plant-based diet or open to trying new things.

For the first time, although it smelled good, I wasn’t interested in eating any of the turkey, especially since the rest of the table was filled with high-nutrient foods. There were four of us working in the kitchen and we found that most of the recipes were incredibly simple to make. Here’s what we did:
