LIMITED TIME: The current meal plan has a special Thanksgiving menu + prep sheet + shopping list. We're also including a FREE eBook with this week's plan + the Thanksgiving section from my new cookbook! It's our gift to you!
Everything is crazy easy and can be made ahead!! We like a fuss-free, healthy #plantproud Thanksgiving too :)
It's a really cool meal plan with a lot of great options, no matter your situation or schedule! Plus there's no leftovers and no waste! (even on the individual plan!)
And YES! Soy-free, gluten-free, vegan, no oil, no nuts, etc!
Get the details on this week's super special, never-done-before and awesome meal plan by clicking here.
I cook a FEAST on Thanksgiving. Every year, without fail, I make way more food than we (and our guests) could ever eat. I can't help it, but my guests are always happy to take home leftovers ;)
This year, we celebrated Thanksgiving early since my parents, Mama and Papa Herbivore, were visiting us in California.
Here's my menu this year: (all recipes were gluten-free and from my new cookbook Happy Herbivore Holidays & Gatherings!)
- "Cheese" Ball (p. 46)
- Thanksgiving Loaf (p. 15)
- Traditional Stuffing (p. 20)
- Mashed Potatoes (p. 18)
- Steamed Green Beans
- Corn Bread (p. 19) (two ways - one was GF)
- Thanksgiving Gravy (p. 16)
- Cranberry Sauce (p. 23)
- Pumpkin Pie (p. 24)
- Rum Cake (p. 40)
My plate: Cranberry Sauce, Traditional Stuffing, Thanksgiving Loaf, Thanksgiving Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Steamed Green Beans & Cornbread.
The secret to cooking all this food (and staying sane... and not making a huge mess...) is to plan. I also love a good prep sheet with a detailed "game plan".
Here's mine from this year (you can find more information about how to create your own game plan in Happy Herbivore Holidays & Gatherings!):
Pot lucks, gluten-free, solo diners, and beyond: I have you covered.
