Trying to decide what to make for Thanksgiving. Whole family goes to my sister's house where I am the only vegan (and only GF person). So most of what I bring will be eaten by me,although brave others have been know to try my food! I'm thinking of trying fatfreevegan's Thanksgiving loaf http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2010/11/th ... -loaf.html and maybe being untraditional and making Vegan Diner's mint truffle pie for dessert (there will already be a punpkin pie there) So what are the rest of you planning?

I stay traditional: chickpea cutlets, gravy, cornbread stuffing (I'm thinking of stuffing the cutlets this year), cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, corn, kale salad, green beans, sweet potatoes. My die-hard stuffing fan niece and nephew LOVE the gluten free stuffing. In fact, the fam will eat anything I make except the cutlets. They'd probably like those fine, but since they're eating turkey, I keep those to myself :D

I always have grand plans, then I have to downsize cause I have to share oven/kitchen with non-vegan fare.
Last year I made vegweb's enchiladas (per my mom's request), Dreena's Festive Chickpea Tartlets using a GF crust, Garlicky Sweet Potatoes, Bryanna's Rich Brown Gravy and fatfreevegan's mini Pumpkin Cheesecake with her oat crust. It was very good.

I really love Dreena's tart, I've been making it for the last 3 TG. But I would like to branch out and do a homemade Tofurkey with all the trimmings. Can you guys recommend a non bread stuffing recipe? All I can get is Ener-G bread and do not like it.

I'm traveling home to my parents' this year. I'm super excited because my mom is a great cook and always makes the sides vegan (and now xgfx). She is awesome. I'm gonna help with the cooking, so we're gonna make:
cornbread stuffing with xgfx cornbread
caramelized shallots: http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/04/caramelized-shallots/
lemony brussels (i add a little candied nuts): http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/17/dinin ... ref=dining
some sort of sweet potato, these look great: http://www.cookincanuck.com/2010/11/twi ... am-recipe/
fruit compote: http://pakupaku.info/thanksgiving/baked ... dley.shtml
and maybe a big head of roasted cauliflower with cheeze sauce on top.

Thank you so much for posting this loaf! It's just what I've been looking for.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

This is my first time hosting my parents since they went gluten free this year. I've got everything covered except for the stuffing! Could anyone recommend a simple cornbread recipe or a suggestion of a good vegan, gluten free bread I could make bread cubes out of? Thank you!

We don't do Thanksgiving here but I gave it a go last year for MoFo, I made mushroom and spinach stuffing, roasted Brussels sprouts with hazelnuts, festive chickpea tart, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie (blërg).

I might do some of these recipes for Christmas plus this mushroom spinach pie too.

hey there. i just modified the recipe from the new farm, and it came out great. this makes a non-sweet pretty cakey bread, which is perfect for cubing and turning into dressing. i use a different recipe for eating, but i like a less cakey bread, usually.

so take this recipe: http://www.bigoven.com/recipe/18005/Veg ... Corn-Bread
and instead of the wheat flour add:

1 cup superfine brown rice flour
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/4 cup tapioca flour
2 tbl potato starch
1/2 tsp xantham gum

you could prolly leave out the gum and add a bit of ground flax seed, but i wanted to make sure my bread wasn't crumbly. i am bringing this on an airplane tomorrow night!

i hope you like it. i'm pretty excited with how it came out, i've been munching on the little cubes all day. i think it needs a bit of salt, or be sure to season the dressing with some.

Okay, I just made the mint pie (awesome!) and a sweet poato casserole http://ohsheglows.com/2009/11/24/this-a ... casserole/ which is yummy but I could have used a bit more potatoes(apparently the was a run on them at my market) I've decided to make chickpea cutlets in the morning cause I know they're yummy. Haven't had a chance to test other recipes yet. If I have time I might make biscuts. Oh,I also got an apple pie from a local gluten free bakery. Turns out their apple and blueberry pies are vegan!
