I can't find a thread here on the new ppk. What's everyone making?

I haven't finalized the menu, but here are some things I'm thinking about:

Mushroom tart
Roasted apples with leeks
Quinoa with almonds and currants
Sweet potatoes, not sure how
Cornbread muffins
Roasted red or golden potatoes
Asparagus

Because we are in the UK and therefore no day off, some American and no so American friends here are going to have a pot luck.

There will be real turkey and gravy and milk / egg filled desserts.

There is one other vegan (and two vegetarians) so I am making us a nut loaf and apple crisp and maybe faux hostess cupcakes.

Ooh, a mushroom tart sounds good.

So far, I'm planning on some of my old stand-bys, since I'll be cooking a vegan feast for a couple of non-vegans and want everything to be really, really good.

-Herbed whole wheat stuffing with apple/sage "sausage"
-Mashed potatoes w/ mushroom gravy
-Perhaps some kind of grilled seitan (w/ the gravy also)
-Some kind of sweet potato or butternut squash dish (perhaps roasted w/ maple syrup instead of mashed/baked?)
-Some kind of green bean dish (like a "casserole" but healthier and tastier)
-Apple pie or apple tart
-Pumpkin pie? Not sure yet.

I haven't quite finished our menu, but I'm having an issue.

Bryanna Clark Grogan's seitan roast is missing from the internets! Does anybody have it and willing to PM me with it? I was really excited to try it this year.

My plan:

Baked onion rings
Kale chips
Generic but delicious salad
Penne Vodka
Hashed Brussels Sprouts with lemon and poppyseed
Banana Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding

My mom said my dad needs meat, but I told him to make a sandwich and get over it.

this will be my first thanksgiving all alone in nyc. i can't decide if i don't want to cook at all or want to make the bestest vegan thanksgiving spread ever because no one will be looking suspiciously over my shoulder saying, "what do you call that, tofucky? it looks like haggis. that cake you made--is it . . . real?"

Thanksgiving for me is not fun! I am the only vegetarian in my family, and I don't eat dairy(other than cheese) and eggs are sketchy also. I have learned I have to bring my own entree to the family gathering. This year I don't know if I will buy a Tofurky roast or if I will try making something from scratch.

I am, however, looking forward to introducing my family to vegan pumpkin pie and homemade cranberry sauce.

Anyone have a suggestion for a good entree?

Which of her seitan roast recipes are you looking for ? Is it the one with tofu , chickpea flour and gluten? She's published multiple recipes over the years: Vegan Holiday newsletter, books, website....

tell me more! these sound goooOOOOod.

Essentials for me include some kind of dressing (will be made from xgfx cornbread), cranberries, gravy and my mom's fruit compote http://pakupaku.info/thanksgiving/baked_fruit_medley.shtml, which might sound gross, but is really amazing with all the sides. the juice sorta runs into the dressing and is just perfect. her mashed potato pie is also really great.

This recipe is based on her seitan 'turkey'. The gravy at the bottom of the page looks really yummy!

Kittee, the recipe is from The Vegan Table. She uses onions but I'm in love with shallots. The shallots/onions are carmelized and the pistachios are toasted and chopped up.

I'm excited to be cooking some vegan goodies for a mixed-company "we're all not going home for Thanksgiving this year!" group.

I'm going to make a tofu roast based on a recipe I found last year that looks good. Probably some mashed sweet potatoes with brown sugar. I don't know what else.

The day after, I'm hosting my family for my birthday dinner (the birthday present is that I get to cook dinner so I can eat everything on the menu!) and I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to make for that. Probably a big menu out of VCon. Possibly a smlove birthday pie.

honestly, every year I go all out and make a huge delcious meal and everything is vegan excpet for the Turkey, but my family doesn't really appreciate it. This year I'm thinking I'll be making a giant casserole dish full of mac and cheese just for me and eating only that. Screw everyone else.

I think I'll make this recipe: http://www.chow.com/recipes/27677-who-c ... and-cheese
