Vegan "ThanksLiving"

For a few years in a row, I've been happy to host a vegan Thanksgiving party at my house. While everyone else was devouring turkey, my animal-friendly friends and I savored Cornmeal Crusted Tofu Cutlets with Crimini Mushroom Gravy, Wild Rice Stuffing, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Acorn Squash with Pecan Praline, Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Fresh Cranberry Sauce, Gingered Winter Vegetable Bisque... and a delectable array of seasonal desserts.

If you're inspired to host a vegan feast of your own (or just want to come up with one darn good recipe to share with family and friends), I hope this post will help. Below are a few websites that offer creative ideas for the holidays. Why not let them be your inspiration for starting new compassionate holiday traditions this year?

Your Thanksgiving meal looked delicious. I wish I could have shared the meal with you. I guess I'll just have to cook one for myself. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
